Philadelphia Flyers

Start time for Flyers vs. Bruins at Lake Tahoe moved to 7:30 p.m. EST



Lake Tahoe

The start time for the Philadelphia Flyers game at Lake Tahoe has been moved … again.

The Flyers and Boston Bruins are now scheduled to face off at 7:30 p.m. EST (4:30 p.m. local time). This was announced after some issues with the ice in the first period of the Colorado Avalanche vs. Vegas Golden Knights game Saturday afternoon.

Flyers-Bruins will also now be televised on NBCSN, not NBC.

The game was originally scheduled for a 3 p.m. EST (12 p.m. local time) start and was moved up an hour due to the weather forecast. However, given how the ice looks for today’s game that started at 3 p.m. EST, moving the game back makes sense.

The sun is not only creating a glare in the eyes of the players and goaltenders, but it is creating poor ice conditions as well.

In an attempt to improve ice conditions the first intermission was extended. It is still up in the air whether or not this game will be finished.

When could Flyers fans return to the Wells Fargo Center?

As of writing this, the NHL is considering a few different options to finish the Avalanche – Golden Knights game. They could resume play later today, tonight, or even perhaps Sunday morning.

For the game to be considered “official,” they must complete two periods.

Hopefully, the ice conditions will be improved and things will be figured out for the Flyers game against the Bruins at 7:30 p.m. EST on Sunday night.
