The Flyers finished their morning skate Tuesday at the Wells Fargo Center thinking they had one more game before the NHL-mandated holiday break. Not long after, with some Washington Capitals still on the ice in Philadelphia, the game was postponed.
Because of COVID-related issues affecting Washington, the Flyers-Capitals game Tuesday night has been postponed. The makeup date is to be determined.
All tickets for Tuesday night’s game will be valid once the rescheduled date is selected. Ticket buyers will be contacted with more information.
The Flyers-Penguins game Thursday in Pittsburgh was called off Monday night when the NHL and NHLPA agreed to postpone all games scheduled for Thursday as COVID cases have been rampant throughout the league.
The Flyers have three players and two staff members in COVID protocol. Other teams are in much worse shape.
Following the holiday break from Wednesday through Saturday, the Flyers are scheduled to have three days before their next game. They have a back-to-back road set December 29-30 against the Seattle Kraken and San Jose Sharks.
If the Flyers’ schedule stays the same, the club will have gone 10 days between games. The Flyers beat the Ottawa Senators, 4-3, in overtime last Saturday and are 12-12-5 overall at the break. They’ll head to Seattle on a season-best five-game point streak.
