The 2019 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers was mic'd up for "Wired: Stadium Series -- Penguins vs. Flyers," a one-hour special debuting on NBCSN at 11 p.m. ET following coverage of the Minnesota Wild game against the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena on Tuesday (8 p.m. ET).
The program uses audio from the Flyers' 4-3 overtime win against the Penguins at Lincoln Financial Field on Feb. 23. Viewers will re-live the game through four mic'd players, two referees and coaches Mike Sullivan (Pittsburgh) and Scott Gordon (Philadelphia).
The Stadium Series averaged a Total Audience Delivery (TAD) of nearly two million viewers, making it the most-watched NHL regular-season game in five years excluding the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic. Pittsburgh delivered a 16.9 local rating and Philadelphia had a 6.3 rating, and it was the most-streamed Stadium Series game ever across NBC Sports digital platforms.
The Penguins (34-22-9) are 2-0-1 since the Stadium Series and hold the first wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Eastern Conference entering their game against the Florida Panthers at PPG Paints Arena on Tuesday (7 p.m. ET; ESPN+, ATTSN-PT, FS-F, NHL.TV).
The Flyers (32-26-8) are 3-0-1 since Claude Giroux's goal at 1:59 of overtime defeated the Penguins in the outdoor game, 16-3-2 in their past 21 games and five points behind the Montreal Canadiens for the second wild card from the East. They play the Washington Capitals at Wells Fargo Center in the first of a "Wednesday Night Hockey" doubleheader (7:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVAS).
