Games through Dec. 30 have been canceled. The Wells Fargo Center will likely remain empty into the New Year.

We're one day away from the 2012-13 NHL season officially becoming just the 2013 NHL season.

Four days after lockout talks blew up in New York City, the NHL has gone ahead and canceled all games through December 30. Here's a list of Flyers games that have been affected by the cancellations so far, which impact 42.8 percent of the NHL's overall schedule:

In total, 35 Flyers games have been wiped away so far during this lockout -- 17 on the road, 18 at home.

As it stands, the regular season would begin with a New Year's Eve affair against the Phoenix Coyotes at Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, but that game will almost certainly not happen as the NHL will rework the schedule once the lockout does end. (And yes, we still do believe the season will happen.)

These cancellations feel a bit more like a skate to the face than others over the last several months, if only because the two sides were seemingly making so much progress last week. We'll have to wait into the New Year before we see Flyers hockey more than likely, but as we're discussed before, the sides are just too close and there's just too much money on the line for them to throw it all away now.
