The NHL released its revised schedule Wednesday, the result of 98 COVID postponements.
As a result, teams will now be playing numerous games in February, which would have been mostly quiet if the league had not been forced to alter its schedule and had allowed NHL players to go to the Olympics.
The Flyers’ February schedule grew from four to eight games in the new schedule. All told, six changes were made, and here are revised games and times:
- Feb. 9 vs. Detroit at 7 p.m. (rescheduled from Jan. 18).
- Feb. 12 at Detroit at 1 p.m. (rescheduled from Feb. 23)
- Feb. 15 at Pittsburgh at 7 p.m. (rescheduled from Dec. 23)
- Feb. 17 vs. Washington at 7 p.m. (rescheduled from Dec. 21)
- Feb. 21 vs. Carolina at 3 p.m. (rescheduled from Jan. 11)
- Feb. 22 vs. St. Louis at 7 p.m. (rescheduled from Feb. 28)
Only two of the original February dates remained the same: Feb. 1 vs. Winnipeg, and Feb. 26 vs. Washington.
Two dates on the original schedule — Feb. 23 (at Detroit) and Feb. 28 (vs. St. Louis) — have been moved.
In addition, the Flyers’ April 27 game at Winnipeg was moved from 8 p.m. (ET) to 7:30 p.m.
Bill Daly, the NHL’s deputy commissioner, said the league was “profoundly grateful to our fans for their support and understanding during a challenging time.”
The NHL said the updated schedule will enable all 32 teams to complete the regular season by the original closing date of April 29.
Tickets for the originally scheduled games will be valid for the rescheduled dates, the Flyers announced. Fans who are unable to attend the rescheduled games can exchange their tickets for another date, which must occur prior to the rescheduled date — and they can exchange them on their online account.
