2011 Philadelphia Flyers preseason schedule

The Philadelphia Flyers announced their 2011 preseason schedule. They are the home team for the September 22nd game.

From the team's official news release:

The Philadelphia Flyers announced on Monday that the team will play a seven-game exhibition schedule prior to the start of the 2011-2012 season, featuring three games at the Wells Fargo Center and a game against the Detroit Red Wings at the Global Spectrum-managed John Labatt Centre in London, Ontario.

The Flyers are visiting the John Labatt Centre for the ninth time; however, it is the first time they'll play the Red Wings there. The arena is managed by Global Spectrum, a subsidiary of Flyers parent company Comcast-Spectacor. Global Spectrum manages more than 100 public assembly facilities around the world.

"London truly is our home away from home," said Comcast-Spectacor president and Global Spectrum chairman Peter Luukko. "The fan support in London for the Flyers is outstanding. The John Labatt Centre is a fantastic hockey arena that our players enjoy visiting. To be playing the Detroit Red Wings in London is a dream match-up for hockey fans in southwestern Ontario and eastern Michigan. It's going to be a terrific night of hockey in the City of London."

The Flyers' 2011 preseason schedule is as follows:
