Just a day after the release of their preseason schedule, the Philadelphia Flyers unveiled their 2022-2023 regular-season schedule this afternoon. The Flyers’ 2022-2023 campaign will mark the 55th season of hockey in Philadelphia.

The Flyers will begin their first road trip on October 18th. They will play back-to-back games in Florida, starting with the Tampa Bay Lightning and then the Florida Panthers on the 19th. The road trip will conclude against the Nashville Predators on October 22nd.
Battle of Pennsylvania
The Flyers will take on their cross-state rivals, the Pittsburgh Penguins, just three times during the year. Their first matchup will be the annual Black Friday game on November 25th in Philadelphia, their second tilt will be on March 11th in Pittsburgh, and the final meeting of the year will be on April 2nd in Pittsburgh.
Longest home stand and road trip
The longest home stand of the season consists of seven games in Philadelphia. Between March 14-28, the Flyers will compete against the Golden Knights, Sabres, Hurricanes, Panthers, Wild, Red Wings, and Canadiens.
The longest road trip will consist of five games, spanning from December 22-January 2. During that timeframe, the Flyers will lace up against the Maple Leafs, Hurricanes, Sharks, Kings, and Ducks.
Metropolitan Division Showdowns
Along with facing the Penguins three times, the Orange and Black will match up against their fellow Metropolitan Division competitors on multiple occasions. They will play the Rangers, Hurricanes, Islanders, Blue Jackets, Devils, and Capitals four times each.
Philadelphia finished last in the Metropolitan Division in 2021-2022. They were two points behind the Devils for seventh place and 39 points behind the Capitals for the final wild-card spot.
