So who's calling Isles - Flyers Wednesday on NBCSN?
If you checked your pocket schedule, you would note that this Wednesday's game is one of five not airing on the MSG family of networks this season.
NBCSN has exclusive rights in our area to five Isles games:
11/25 vs. Philadelphia
12/2 vs. Rangers
2/4 at Washington
3/8 vs. Pittsburgh
3/21 vs. Philadelphia
Earlier this afternoon, Pro Hockey Talk (an NBC property)'s Mike Halford tweeted the broadcasters for Wednesday evening. Given that it's a Wednesday and the Flyers are an old-time rival, you were probably expecting Doc, Eddie and Pierre. However, that crew has the night off -- they will be in Boston on Friday for the Black Friday matinee on NBC between the Rangers and Bruins.
The Flyers' crew of Jim Jackson, Keith Jones and Chris Therien will call Wednesday's game, both on the Comcast Network in Philadelphia and nationally on NBCSN.
