I took a look at the Flyers Jan 19th-Apr 13th schedule in another thread
They have 39 games scheduled in that time.
I'm hearing that the NHL will go with a 50 game schedule
and there is no way the NHL can smash those +11 games in the existing schedule, which is due to end April 13th.
I'd bet the NHL will tack on two extra weeks
, bringing the regular season to 14 weeks, ending on April 27th.
This was discussed in another thread
This would work out better as:
11 regular season weeks (for 12-team leagues)
+3 playoff weeks
