I spent most of my final day in Prague, Czech Republic, at O2 Arena, where the Chicago Blackhawks and Philadelphia Flyers played their regular-season opener in the 2019 NHL Global Series.

It's my first full day in Prague, Czech Republic, where the Chicago Blackhawks and Philadelphia Flyers will play in the 2019 Global Series at O2 Arena on Friday (2 p.m. ET; SN360, NBCSP, NBCSCH, NHL.TV), and I feel the need to apologize to my mother.
