PHILADELPHIA — The Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers might participate in the 2019 Stadium Series game at Lincoln Financial Field, Saturday night at 8 p.m. The operative word is “might”. Forecasters are predicting heavy rains to begin also at 8 p.m.

UPDATE, Saturday at 12 p.m.: The NHL expects the game to begin on time with only light precipitation later. 

The National Hockey League per a press release said the league is monitoring the weather situation and is prepared for light precipitation. As of writing, all systems are a go for the game to begin and proceed on time.

That’s the official update.

Now, the scuttle is a little bit different and take it all with a dose of skepticism because it’s unofficial. The consensus from a room full of media people who have been in contact with various levels of the NHL staff posits if the inclement weather pattern holds, the game would be moved to 3 or 4 p.m., Sunday.

The decision is expected on Saturday at around 4 p.m.

Again, those are the unofficial expectations. It’s all Jack Johnson’s fault.

      I believe you’re kidding.
      I fear you’re not.
      Read PHN. Not that site.

    Jack Johnson is to blame for the Antonio Brown situation. He is a multi-sport problem.

    Here’s the story the local media has whiffed on: The possible return of Fleury to the ‘Burgh.

    MAF has been positively aw-ful since the All-Star break. Meanwhile, Subban has played well in goal for the Knights of late. He’s the much younger and cheaper of the two. Vegas is headed for an early vacation (sweep?) against the San Jose in round one. Not sure if MAF would want to come back, but I have to believe the Knights would consider a reasonable offer at his advanced age (34).

    If the Pens were to acquire MAF, they might get the old Murray back as part of the deal. Some believe Murr needs to be pushed, which MAF could do. At the very least, he would arouse a sleeping dog of a team.
