Philadelphia Flyers 2013-2014 Season
The lockout shortened 2012-13 season was a disappointing one for the Flyers, as they missed the playoffs for the first time since 2006-2007. While the team did sign veteran center Vincent Lecavalier this offseason, coach Paul Holmgren will look for improvement from a roster without many changes. Average price for Flyers tickets this upcoming season is $118. The most expensive home game comes against the in-state rival Pittsburgh Penguins
on 3/15, averaging $171.
When they're very good, they're the Broad Street Bullies; when they're struggling, they're just the Philadelphia Flyers. With a slow start this season, the Flyers find themselves just outside the playoff chase in a generally balanced Eastern Conference. While generally successful at the
Wells Fargo Center in south Philadelphia, they definitely have a Jekyll and Hyde personality, as their performance as the visiting team shows a struggle. One thing they need to fix is an imbalance in goals allowed vs. goals scored, as they allow slightly more goals per game then they score. Possibly the biggest thing missing from their defense is the leadership of Chris Pronger, who has been out since early last season with post-concussion syndrome. Lead goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov is having his issues with keeping the puck out of the net; center Matt Read is the offensive leader for the Flyers, followed closely by Brayden Schenn and Jake Voracek.
Coach Peter Laviolette's men have some work to do to get themselves into playoff shape; with an upcoming six-game road trip that even their general manager insisted would be key to the full season. If they can use that to bring an improvement to their road performance, they will prove to be a formidable squad in the playoffs. Philadelphia Flyers tickets average $105 at home, one of the more affordable NHL tickets this season. Philly fans wanting to see the Flyers on the road in 2013 should expect to pay $25 more per ticket compared to home games at Wells Fargo Center, as the Flyers are one of the top three teams other NHL fans want to see. What's the hottest Flyers hockey ticket? In February and March, the Philadelphia Flyers host the Toronto Maple Leafs (2/25), Washington Capitals (2/27, 3/31), Pittsburgh Penguins (3/7), New York Rangers (3/26) and Boston Bruins (3/30). If you're looking to find cheap Flyers tickets, the Phildelphia Flyers schedule includes tickets priced from $24.
