The Flyers and Red Wings are Apparently Rivals
The Philadelphia Flyers and Detroit Red Wings are set to face off against each other on December 4th.
NBC will be airing their game on 8 o’clock, under the promotion of “Rivalry Night.”
Someone needs to tell NBC that Detroit-Philadelphia is in fact not a rivalry.
The Flyers will face off against the Blackhawks exactly a week later for another Rivalry Night game.
Chicago-Philadelphia has a little more behind it, as the Windy City defeated the City of Brotherly Love in the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals.
Still, the Flyers could face off against the Penguins, Rangers, Islanders, Devils… any of which would be better than the 2 squads NBC has come up with.
