Philadelphia and Pittsburgh will meet for the second time this season tonight. The Flyers dropped their last match-up falling 5-4, October 29th.
The forecast called for rain Saturday morning with temperatures dropping into the night and the potential for snow. The precipitation is a bigger issue than the air temperature, which reached nearly 80 degrees Friday at Heinz Field. Heat wasn’t a problem for the ice when the two teams practiced.
