The Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins renew their great rivalry Saturday when Pennsylvania’s two storied NHL franchises face off outdoors at Heinz Field, the home of the NFL’s Steelers.
The game will be televised live on NBC, starting at 8 p.m. ET.
NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app will also provide live streaming of the game.
Four-time Emmy Award-winner Mike ‘Doc’ Emrick (play-by-play), U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame member Eddie Olczyk (analyst), and Emmy Award-winner Pierre McGuire (‘Inside-the-Glass analyst) will have the call in Pittsburgh.
The NHL on NBC studio team of Liam McHugh (host) and analysts Mike Milbury, Keith Jones, and Jeremy Roenick will anchor pre-game and intermission coverage on-site.
This will be the fourth outdoor game of the 2016-17 NHL season. It started with the Heritage Classic on Oct. 23 in Winnipeg, where the Edmonton Oilers shut out the Jets, 3-0. On Jan. 1, the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the Detroit Red Wings, 5-4, in overtime at BMO Field. And the next day, in the Winter Classic, the St. Louis Blues knocked off the Chicago Blackhawks, 4-1, at Busch Stadium.
