Flyers and Capitals start time confirmed

At long last, time exists!

NHL: Philadelphia Flyers at Washington Capitals Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

After not knowing what time the Flyers and Washington Capitals would play their round robin match this coming Thursday, the NHL finally confirmed when the puck will drop for the contest, along with other games on that day:

The game, broadcast from the Toronto hub, will start at 4:00 PM EST. This contest will prove to be quite pivotal for the Flyers, as they currently sit in second place in the Eastern Conference Round Robin standings (both they and the Lightning have wins, but the tie-breaker is regular season points percentage so the Lightning are in first).

A regulation win for the Flyers, along with a Tampa victory over the Bruins, would guarantee the Flyers one of the top two spots in the Eastern Conference.
