It’s one of three exhibition games NBC Sports Philadelphia will air before the season officially restarts on July 30.
“I’m just thankful to be doing games,” Zumoff said. The NHL hasn’t released a full schedule, but NBC Sports Philadelphia will air the team’s exhibition game against the Pittsburgh Penguins on July 28.
The Flyers, along with the rest of the Eastern Conference, are playing their games in Toronto, where the world feed is being produced by NBC Sports.
For starters, there will be canned crowd noise during games this season, but that isn’t coming from NBC Sports Philadelphia – the Phillies are pumping sounds from the “MLB: The Show” video game directly into the stadium.
“I’m not sure if on this day, what would be weirder: Calling a game from the studio or calling a game from a completely empty ballpark,” Vasgersian said.
