The NHL released the dates of each teams home openers today. The season starts Wednesday October 8th with home games for Boston, Calgary, Montreal and LA. As if the playoff catastrophe for the Sharks wasn’t bad enough, now San Jose gets to watch LA raise their Stanley Cup banner in LA’s home opener.
The Flyers start their season with a back to back set of games, first on the 8th against Boston for their home opener, then the Flyers play their home opener on Thursday the 9th against the Devils. The Flyers have lost the last two home openers, both under Laviolette at the start of seasons that went pretty bad.
Hopefully a new GM and a new coach will make this season start differently than the last two.
