Flyers vs. Lightning lineups, start time, TV, radio, live stream and discussion

The Flyers’ last game before the All-Star break will be a big challenge, as they go up against the best team in the NHL.

Tonight’s game begins at 7:00 p.m. ET and can be:

  • Seen on TV locally via NBC Sports Philadelphia (or via stream on the NBC Sports App)
  • Heard via radio locally on 97.5 The Fanatic
  • Seen on TV in Florida via SUN
  • Seen or heard elsewhere via Sportsnet ONE (in Canada), NHL.TV, NHL Center Ice, and Sirius XM

We’ve got some late-breaking injury news that Alex Lyon, and not Brian Elliott, will be backing up Michal Neuvirth tonight, as Lyon was called up late this afternoon by the Flyers. Neuvirth was originally planned to start tonight’s game, so news that Elliott is out changes nothing (hopefully) in the short-term, but we don’t have any details on what’s ailing him other than that he’s suffering a “lower-body injury”. Hopefully that’s nothing serious.

Giroux - Couturier - Konecny
