Flyers have upcoming home game postponed because of Islanders' COVID-19 situation


With a significant number of the Islanders' players going through COVID protocol, the Flyers' home game this upcoming Tuesday night against New York has been postponed.

In a statement Saturday, the NHL said its decision was made as a result of the Islanders having "up to eight players potentially unavailable to play due to COVID protocol" and "the possibility of additional cases due to spread."

New York was originally scheduled to visit the Rangers on Sunday and the Flyers on Tuesday.

Makeup dates for both games are to be determined.

All tickets for Tuesday's postponed Flyers game will be valid on the makeup date. Tuesday's ticket holders can also exchange their tickets for another regular-season game.

For those details, see below:

  • Flyers season-ticket members can exchange tickets for a different game through their online account.
  • Single-game ticket holders who purchased tickets through the Flyers will receive an email with instructions to exchange their tickets for a different game if they choose.
  • Ticket holders who purchased tickets through a third party must handle any exchanges with that third party.

For the Flyers, Tuesday's game would have been the first of a back-to-back set. After the Flyers visit the Devils on Sunday (7 p.m. ET/NBCSP), their next game will now be Wednesday on the road against the Rangers (7 p.m. ET/NBCSP+).

The club likely won't mind having the extra day in between from the postponement. The Flyers are banged up and skidding, having lost five straight (0-3-2). If Tuesday's game was played as scheduled, the Flyers' matchup Wednesday would have been the team's sixth game in nine days.

The Flyers are 8-7-4 heading into their matchup Sunday with the 8-6-4 Devils.
