Flyers game at The Linc could be postponed due to heavy rain

SOUTH PHILADELPHIA, PA - Here’s something you’ve never seen before...a hockey rink inside the Linc! 🏒🥅

The Philadelphia Flyers will take on division rival Pittsburgh Penguins Saturday night at Lincoln Financial Field as part of the #NHLstadiumseries.

With the NHL season winding down, its an important game for both organizations as they contend for playoff spots.

After the 1st period ends Saturday night, country music star Keith Urban will perform on an entertainment stage modeled after the Art Museum/Rocky Steps.

With some severe rain in the forecast for Saturday evening, organizers of the outdoor game say, “torrential downpours,” could force the game to be rescheduled.

As of Thursday morning, Steve Mayer, Executive Vice President & Chief Content Officer for the National Hockey League, explained how league officials plan on monitoring the weather forecast over the next 48 hours to determine if the game needs to be postponed.

The Flyers are 0-3 playing in outdoor games.
