2013 Flyers schedule released: Home opener vs. Penguins Jan. 19, season ends Apr. 27

Eric Hartline-US PRESSWIRE

The Flyers will begin the 2013 season on Jan. 19 against the Penguins. They'll finish the season in Ottawa on April 27.

The schedule is finally here. After days of rumors and speculation, the Flyers will officially host the Pittsburgh Penguins next Saturday afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center to kick off the abbreviated 2013 NHL season. The game will be broadcast on NBC at 3 p.m.

Tickets go on sale Tuesday, January 15 at 10 a.m. online, by phone or at the WFC box office. You can see the full schedule over at the Flyers' official website.

Some other highlights:

* The season will end in Ottawa on April 27. That could be Daniel Alfredsson's last ever game, which would be interesting to say the least. They sort of like him in Ottawa.
