  • Who Will They Be Playing?

    Philadelphia Flyers Fans

    It’s not always a no-brainer. You’ll have your Flyers gear on, but make sure a jacket, a hat, or any other clothes you wear don’t rep the visiting colors. Don’t risk getting stuck wearing yellow if it’s a matchup against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

  • Where Is A Good Place To Park?

    If you’d rather take public transportation to the game, NRG Station is the terminal stop on the Broad Street Line (Orange Line). It lets riders out at Broad Street and Pattison Avenue, just a quick walk from the Wells Fargo Center.
