The Flyers and Penguins take things outdoors this weekend in the third outdoor game for the NHL this season. The Stadium Series featured multiple outdoor games per season, and putting the two cross-state rivals against each other has been a long-awaited occurrence.
But fans may have to wait a little longer, at least if Mother Nature gets in the way of things. The forecast in Pittsburgh this weekend calls for warmer temperatures approaching 70 degrees and rain on Saturday.
Flyers President Paul Holmgren said Wednesday that if the rain made conditions too poor to play, the game would be played on Sunday.
