Flyers-Capitals game Tuesday airing on ESPN+ and Hulu exclusively

Good luck finding Flyers Tuesday on TV.

Tonight’s game against the Washington Capitals will not be broadcast on NBC Sports Philadelphia, nor is it broadcast by ESPN or TNT. Streaming exclusively on ESPN+ and Hulu as part of the network’s new television deal with the NHL.

It is one of 75 NHL games scheduled to air exclusively on the two Disney-owned streaming platforms this season. The Flyers’ January 6 match against the Pittsburgh Penguins will also air exclusively on ESPN+ and Hulu, as well as matches against the St. Louis Blues (March 24) and Chicago Blackhawks (April 25).

The good news is that you can sign up for a free trial of Hulu. Other than that, the subscription costs $6.99 per month for either Hulu or ESPN+. There’s also a package containing ESPN+, Hulu, and Disney+ for $13.99 a month.

Calling the game for ESPN is broadcaster Bob Wischusen along with analyst Kevin Weekes and Emily Kaplan, who will report from among the benches. John Pokegross and Ryan Callahan will handle matters in the studio, and Linda Cohen will host in the crease after the match.

  • where: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia

  • Broadcasters: Bob Wischusen, Kevin Wake, Emily Kaplan

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the NFL, tonight’s Flyers game will be played simultaneously with the Eagles-Washington at Lincoln Financial Field. This means that parking will be a mess.

The Wells Fargo Center encourages Flyers fans to arrive early or use public transportation, warning that traffic around the stadiums will be “too heavy.”

All Wells Fargo Center parking will open at 4 p.m. and will be reserved for Flyers, who must show their tickets to park. Fans are also encouraged to prepay parking on the Wells Fargo Center website.

All fans attending an Eagles game will be directed to park at Lots M/N/P (opens 12:00 PM), Lots QX (opens 12:00 PM), or Lot K (reserved parking opens at 12:00 PM). It’s 2:30 p.m.). Anyone with an Eagles prepaid parking ticket for Wells Fargo Center Lots AG must use their existing permit to park their vehicle in Lots M, N, P or QX.

Wells Fargo center said it tried to reschedule tonight’s game, but it was unsuccessful.
