The Philadelphia Flyers had four games postponed due to COVID this month, and a few others already rescheduled as well. But the schedule changes keep coming.
On Tuesday, the NHL announced a bevy of schedule changes around the league. Here are the ones involving the Flyers:
“The following games have been re-scheduled:
Game #668, Philadelphia at Pittsburgh, originally scheduled for April 13, is now scheduled for Saturday, March 6, at 1 p.m. ET
Game #390, Philadelphia at Boston, originally scheduled for March 7, is now scheduled for Monday, April 5, at 7 p.m. ET
Game #605, Boston at Philadelphia, originally scheduled for April 5, is now scheduled for Saturday, April 10, at 2 p.m. ET
Game #202, Philadelphia at Washington, originally scheduled for Feb. 9, is now scheduled for Tuesday, April 13, at 7 p.m. ET
Game #254, Philadelphia at NY Rangers, originally scheduled for Feb. 14, is now scheduled for Thursday, April 22, at 7 p.m. ET”
There aren’t any changes in the immediate future. However, the Flyers schedule for April now looks a lot different. It’s going to be an action-packed month leading up to the playoffs in the middle of May.
Hopefully, the Flyers schedule won’t be impacted too much further by COVID. Claude Giroux left quarantine and joined the team for practice on Tuesday and the rest of the players on the COVID list could soon join him.
The Flyers return to action on Wednesday night after two days off to travel back from Lake Tahoe. They will host the New York Rangers on Wednesday before traveling up to Buffalo for a back-to-back set of weekend matinees against the Sabres.
After that, the schedule really picks up with the Flyers playing at least every other day through the end of March. After this Thursday and Friday, the Flyers don’t have back-to-back off days until April 1st and 2nd.
The Flyers play 21 games in 33 days starting this Saturday.
