The Philadelphia Flyers released their seven game 2015-16 preseason schedule, which begins with a split squad game against the New York Islanders. Half of the players will face off at the PPL Center, home of the AHL Lehigh Valley Phantoms, in Allentown, while the other half will meet the Islanders in their new home, the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. This marks the move for the Islanders from the Nassau Coliseum, where they won four Stanley Cups (please, no reminders of 1980).
The Wells Fargo Center gets three games. Oddly, the Flyers will only play three opponents – the Rangers, Islanders and Devils – for their entire preseason slate. Full schedule is below.
