As we all know, the Flyers are set to play the Penguins in the first round of the playoffs. Entering the postseason as the 5th overall seed in the Eastern Conference, they will not have the luxury of having home ice advantage against Pittsburgh.
The Flyers only have 1 loss all-time at the Consol Energy Center (yesterday), so we're not too concerned with their ability to play well on the road, especially in that building.
The first game of the series will commence on Wednesday, April 11 in Pittsburgh. The game will be broadcast on the NBC Sports Network, with puck drop set for 7:30pm.

With an essentially meaningless game to finish the regular season on Saturday, Philadelphia Flyers stud center Claude Giroux elected to take a breather.
Although general manager Paul Holmgren said that his star was plagued by an upper-body injury - multiple reports deduced that it was actually a cold - Giroux sat out Saturday's 4-2 loss to the rival Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Philadelphia Flyers are preparing for a deep playoff run starting with cross state rival the Pittsburgh Penguins. While the Flyers are preparing, they need to look at the team’s current injuries and how the team will be affected by missing players.
The first and most obvious missing link is the team’s captain Chris Pronger.
Pronger has been out for the majority of the season...
Danny Briere may be ready to go for Game 1 of the playoffs against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Defenseman Nicklas Grossmann also will return.
The health of some key members of the Philadelphia Flyers has been in question as the team approaches the playoffs. Today, the Flyers got a little bit of clarity in regards to a couple of their more important pieces.

Philadelphia Flyers forward Scott Hartnell expects ''a lot of blood, a lot of goals'' when the Flyers face the Pittsburgh Penguins in the opening round of the NHL playoffs.
The fourth-seeded Penguins will have home-ice advantage Wednesday against fifth-seeded Philadelphia, though playing at Consol Energy Center has hardly been an advantage.
The Flyers have won five...
Warning, this post is incredibly stupid.
You can only analyze a series so much before it starts to drive you mad. So, instead of actual analysis, we've Photoshopped Flyers players with zoo animals.
With the recent signing/extension of Nicklas Grossman the Philadelphia Flyers achieved three things. First of all they overpaid for a good but not elite defensive defenseman, secondly they gave themselves potential cap headaches this summer with the likes of Matt Carle, Jaromir Jagr and Jakub Voracek to re-sign (headaches could disappear depending on the Pronger situation) and finally...
Earlier this month we wrote about how EA's NHL 13 would feature a player on the cover selected by the fans in a March Madness style bracket. Some players have taken it to heart, waging war against their fellow competitors in an effort to get their mug on the cover for all fans to see.
Scott Hartnell took things a step further and honestly, we...
Ilya Bryzgalov has never been shy to go out on a limb and make some whacky comments infront of the media this year since coming to a bigger market in Philadelphia. While getting prepared to ...
One of the more underrated and sickening playoff defeats the Penguins have ever experienced was the 2000 series against the Flyers. If a Penguins fan is ever on the show "Intervention," they will be talking about how great their life was and then the producer will ask what was the catalyst to their downward spiral in life. The Penguin fan will take a deep breath...
