The Flyers are going to get pretty familiar with the New York Islanders this September.
The team released its preseason schedule Friday, which includes eight games, four against the Islanders, with the first matchup on Sep. 16 at 1 p.m. at Nassau Coliseum. The Bruins (two games) and the Rangers (three games) are the Flyers' other preseason opponents.
Those same three opponents also comprised the entirety of the Flyers' preseason slate last season.
A matchup vs. the Islanders on Sep. 17 at 7 p.m. will be the Flyers' first game at the Wells Fargo Center since their 8-5 loss on April 22 in Game 6 of the first round of the playoffs to the Penguins.
The full preseason schedule is below.
