The Philadelphia Flyers have officially announced their television schedule for the 2011-2012 National Hockey League season. The club is set for 13 national appearances split between NBC and Versus/NBC Sports.
The Flyers' season opener versus the Bruins, season closer versus the Penguins and, of course, Winter Classic match up versus the Rangers are all on the schedule. Starting with their February 12th contest against the Detroit Red Wings, the Flyers will finish their 2012 stretch run with six NBC/Versus dates. A March 26th meeting with the Tampa Bay Lightning is definitely set for Versus while the five other dates are subject to a "flex-schedule" in the interest of possibly being chosen for the NBC Game of the Week.
Given the Flyers traditionally high cross-country ratings as well as Comcast's new partnership with NBC, the number of dates, especially those potentially "flexed," come as little surprise.
