The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that the starting time for their game
against the New Jersey Devils at the Wachovia Center on Saturday, October 25,
has been changed to 4:00 p.m. (et).

"We felt that changing the starting time to 4:00 p.m.
benefits our fans," said Flyers General Manager Paul Holmgren. "The 4:00 p.m.

The original starting time of 7:00 p.m. for the game was
changed to 4:00 p.m. to avoid a conflict with Game 3 of the 2008 World
Series. This is the second time that the Flyers have changed a game to avoid a
conflict with a World Series game. The Flyers-New York Islanders game at the
Spectrum on October 21, 1993 was moved to October 22 to avoid a conflict with
Game Five of the 1993 World Series.
