The Philadelphia Flyers are returning to the Spectrum for one last game. Team officials say the Flyers will take on the Carolina Hurricanes in a preseason game on Sept. 27, at the same arena where they won their first Stanley Cup in 1974. Comcast-Spectacor announced last month that the Wachovia Spectrum will close in 2009 and be demolished to make room for entertainment development. Comcast-Spectacor chairman Ed Snider says the preseason game against the Hurricanes will be an emotional one that gives fans a chance to see the Flyers in their old home.
