The Philadelphia Flyers released their full 2015 preseason schedule on Wednesday and they're certainly keeping it local.
Gone are mainstays on the preseason schedule like the Toronto Maple Leafs and Washington Capitals. The annual game in London, Ont. is gone too. The Flyers had a tradition of playing a game in the Budweiser Gardens, but that's no more. Instead, a new tradition: a game at PPL Center in Allentown, home of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms.
They will play three games in Philadelphia, three at visiting rinks, and one home game in Allentown.
The Islanders haven't announced their full preseason schedule, but it's possible that they host the Flyers in their first game at Barclays Center this season -- their first year since moving to Brooklyn from Nassau Coliseum on Long Island.
