The Philadelphia Flyers, in conjunction with the National Hockey League, announced today their national television broadcast schedule for the 2011-12 season. The Flyers have been scheduled for 13 national broadcasts – six on Versus, two on NBC and five to be televised either on NBC or Versus through the network’s flexible scheduling option.
The Flyers will be in the national spotlight when they drop the puck on the new season on October 6 at Boston on Versus. It’s the first of five nationally-televised Flyers road games on Versus over the first three months of the season. The city of Philadelphia will then be featured in two national NBC broadcasts in January when the Flyers host the New York Rangers on Monday, Jan. 2 and the Boston Bruins on Sunday, Jan. 22.
