Saturday’s game between the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers is the first non-Stadium Series regular-season matchup in primetime on NBC since the network acquired NHL rights in 2006.
Down goalie Henrik Lunqvist and leading-scorer Rick Nash, both out with neck injuries, the Rangers (36-16-6, 78 pts) are 10-3 this month. They’ve beaten the Flyers (26-23-11, 63 pts) in all three meetings this season.
The puck drops at 8 p.m. Eastern. In the NBC booth will be Mike ‘Doc’ Emrick on play-by-play, and he’ll be joined by analysts Eddie Olczyk and Pierre McGuire.
