Flyers Capture Top Seed in NHL’s Stanley Cup Playoffs

The Philadelphia Flyers, owned and operated by Comcast Spectacor, earned the Eastern Conference’s No. 1 seed by winning the round robin of the National Hockey League's return-to-play 24-team tournament.

Saturday’s 4-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto marks the first time in 20 years the Flyers (41-27-7 in the NHL’s shortened season) claimed the top spot in the NHL postseason. The “Orange and Black” went 3-0-0 through the round robin and will move on to face the Montreal Canadiens in the first round of the playoffs.

Game 1 of the Flyers’ first-round matchup with Montreal airs Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

Headquartered in Philadelphia, Comcast Spectacor, Comcast's sports and entertainment hospitality business, owns and operates the Flyers and their home arena, the Wells Fargo Center, along with a portfolio of professional sports teams including the Overwatch League’s Philadelphia Fusion, the National Lacrosse League’s Philadelphia Wings and the Maine Mariners of the ECHL.
