The full Philadelphia Flyers 2008-09 schedule will be announced tomorrow, but an official sneak preview to the upcoming season has been released on the Flyers’ website.
The release officially states that the Flyers will open their season on Oct. 11 at the Wachovia Center against Atlantic Division rival New York Rangers.
Starting this season, the NHL put in place a new scheduling system in which each team from the Eastern Conference will play every other team from the Western Conference at least once. Also, each Eastern Conference division will be matched up with a Western Conference division and each team will play three teams from the designated division.
The Atlantic Division will face the Pacific Division and the Flyers have been selected to face the Colorado Avalanche, San Jose Sharks and Los Angeles Kings twice, one at home and one away.
Tomorrow I will post the full schedule, when it is announced at noon.
