The Flyers have said they look forward to a more normal season in 2021-22.
They should get it with the NHL which is expected to have a traditional 82-game schedule for each club, something the hockey world has not seen in the past two seasons due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Fans will be back at full capacity and they will see the Flyers for four straight games to open the 2021-22 campaign. The Flyers’ season opener is Friday, Oct. 15 against the Canucks. Next, the Kraken led by Dave Hakstol will make their very first trip to Philadelphia on Monday, October 18.

Some notes on the program:

• The Flyers have 15 consecutive series.

• The Flyers are not scheduled to play from February 2 to 22 due to the Olympic break, which is still undetermined.

• The Flyers’ longest consecutive home streak is six (February 26-March 8).
