CSN announces Flyers playoff coverage

Comcast SportsNet will have extended coverage of the Philadelphia Flyers on   their quest for the 2010 Stanley Cup both on air and online at  CSNPhilly.com.  All Flyers first round playoff games will be broadcast on  Comcast SportsNet and are available in high definition.

Yesterday’s game, pitting the Flyers against the Rangers for a playoff  spot, delivered a 3.6 rating (107,000 Households) making it the  most-watched regular season Flyers game on Comcast SportsNet since the 
Flyers defeated the Buffalo Sabres on October 22, 2002.  That game  delivered a 3.7 rating.  The Flyers-Rangers game peaked at a 5.9 rating  (176,000 HHs) at 5:30 p.m. Fans also tuned in after the game, with Flyers  Postgame Live delivering a 2.2 rating (65,000 HHs).

Throughout the playoffs, CSNPhilly.com will have game previews, post-game  recaps and feature stories from Flyers Insider Tim Panaccio, plus player  and coaches’ video exclusives, live chats and much more.
