Another chapter of the battle for Pennsylvania will take place on Wednesday, when the Pittsburgh Penguins and their high-powered offense cruise into Philadelphia to take on the Flyers. This heated rivalry might be the best one going in the NHL right now, as there is always an abundance of goals, fights, and hits when these interstate rivals take the ice.
The average Flyers tickets for this game is $123, which, according to TiqIQ, is much higher than the average home Flyers price. Considering the appeal of the Penguins tickets, and the intensity of the rivalry, it comes as no surprise that the “get-in” price is about $98, with the best seats coming in at around $215. Whether up in the nose-bleeds or right on the ice, no fan will be disappointed with Wednesday night’s game.
The Penguins head into this battle as an offensive powerhouse. The steel-city snipers currently have five of the top 21 point getters in the NHL: Sidney Crosby, Chris Kunitz, Evgeni Malkin, James Neal, and Kris Letang. The Flyers are no offensive slouch themselves, as Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek, two of the top 20 point getters, lead the way for Philly.
Wayne Simmonds has also been a force for Philly, who now has Scott Hartnell back in the lineup as well. Hartnell and Giroux have always been a dynamic duo skating together, and their success should only continue playing alongside a red-hot Voracek. Keep an eye on Philly’s top line against the Penguins on Wednesday, as they try to avenge a heartbreaking loss in Pittsburgh on February 20.
It’s always a high scoring affair when these two teams meet, and there’s no reason to believe it’ll be any different on Wednesday- which bodes for some very exciting NHL hockey. Fueled by hatred, the Flyers-Penguins matchups have become a fan favorite; from the biggest of die-hards to the casual puck lover, all eyes will be on this interstate battle on rivalry Wednesday. Buy your tickets now and don’t miss out on the fun!
