Last year the Philadelphia Flyers traveled to Pittsburgh to take on the hated Penguins at Heinz Field as part of the Stadium Series. The heated interstate rivalry will head outdoors again next year, this time here in Philadelphia.
During the pregame show for tonight’s NFL matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys, Dan Patrick officially announced that the Flyers will host the Penguins at Lincoln Financial Field in another Stadium Series game on February 23, 2019.
When last season’s Stadium Series matchup was announced, the league said they would have a rematch in Philly in 2019, but now we have the date and location is official.
Are you excited to see the Flyers in another outdoor game?
Dan Patrick said: “We’re pleased to announce that next season, the Penguins will be playing outside in Philadelphia. The Flyers will face Pittsburgh at the home of the Eagles, Lincoln Financial Field - February 23, 2019, as part of the NHL’s Stadium Series."— Jonathan Tannenwald (@jtannenwald) November 20, 2017
