The Flyers have had preliminary discussions about playing a regular-season game at Penn State's Beaver Stadium against their archrivals, the Pittsburgh Penguins, club president Peter Luukko confirmed Wednesday.
"We have spoken to the Pens and the league about expressing our combined interest," Luukko said. "Not sure if next year is a possibility. Penn State is very interested."
Outdoor games are all the rage in the NHL. Six of them are planned for next season, including events at Dodger Stadium, Yankee Stadium (twice), Soldier Field, and Michigan Stadium.
