As fans return, who could be in, who could be out for Flyers?


Fans are back at the Wells Fargo Center for the first time in nearly a year as the Flyers (12-6-3) play the Capitals (13-6-4) on Sunday.

Let's get into the essentials for the game:

  • When: 7 p.m. ET with Flyers Pregame Live at 6 p.m. ET
  • Where: Wells Fargo Center
  • Broadcast: NBC Sports Philadelphia
  • Live stream: and the NBC Sports MyTeams app

• The Wells Fargo Center can permit 3,100 fans to attend Flyers and Sixers games moving forward.

Tonight marks the return of Flyers fans after a stretch of 361 days without them. There's more right here on what fans need to know as they come back.

• Head coach Alain Vigneault will hold his pregame media availability at 4:30 p.m. ET. We should have a better idea then about the statuses of Philippe Myers and Michael Raffl.

Myers missed the team's 4-3 loss Saturday afternoon to the Penguins with an undisclosed injury. The 24-year-old defenseman did not play in the third period of the Flyers' 4-3 victory Thursday night after taking a big hit from Anthony Angello midway through the middle frame.

If Myers can't play Sunday, either Nate Prosser or Erik Gustafsson will fill in. Prosser got the nod Saturday over Gustafsson, who has sat four straight games.

Raffl took a shot to the hand in the third period of Saturday's game. He did not play the remainder of the game and finished with only 6:16 minutes of ice time.

If Raffl can't play Sunday, Connor Bunnaman is the likely option to fill his spot.


• Carter Hart is in net for the Flyers. The 22-year-old goalie is 34-13-5 with a 2.32 goals-against average and .926 save percentage in his career at home.
