The New Jersey Devils and Philadelphia Flyers are set for the 2024 NHL Stadium Series. They are kicking off a weekend of amazing entertainment at MetLife Stadium.

Normally, MetLife is the host for the New York Jets and New York Giants of the National Football League. This week, however, the National Hockey League is taking over.

The game is going to take place at 8 PM ET on ABC and ESPN+ for those not in attendance and watching from home.

As for the game itself, this is a big one. Two Metropolitan teams desperately trying to make it to the postseason are battling it out on an outdoor rink.

When the Stadium Series game between the Devils and Flyers was first announced, nobody expected it to be a matchup between two rookie goaltenders but that is exactly what is projected to happen with Nico Daws and Samuel Ersson. They are both well deserving of this opportunity.

For New Jersey, their forward depth is very nice. They are hoping to find a way to score enough goals to get a win. You may notice that Jack Hughes is on the wing right now. He has been since returning from injury. He is incredibly dynamic no matter what so expect a big game from him on this stage.

Other stars like Nico Hischier, Timo Meier, and Jesper Bratt amongst others are ready to do some scoring as well.

On defense, New Jersey is a little bit thinner than they'd like to be but we will see rookies like Luke Hughes and Simon Nemec play big minutes.

As for the Flyers, there is a nice mixture of veterans and youngsters for head coach John Tortorella. He has gotten a lot out of this team this season as they play hard every shift.

Sean Couturier was freshly named the captain this week and it is right in time for the big game. With good forwards like Travis Konecny and Owen Tippett around him, he is hard to contain.

On defense, the Flyers have some nice things going for them but Jamie Drysdale stands out. They just recently traded their top prospect, Cutter Gauthier, to get him. It should be fun to watch him dance around in this one.

There is a lot of talent split between these two teams and there is going to be a lot of entertaining plays made in this outdoor game.

The Stadium Series is a celebration of hockey and this rivalry is one of the best. Expect the unexpected in a matchup like this.
