Maybe it's not just about the rivalries. When creating a schedule, there are a ton of logistics the NHL has to keep in mind. Perhaps, for whatever reason, the best schedule they could put together has the Penguins playing the Flyers only 4 times instead of 5.

Also heard the Penguins home opener is on the 23rd against the Leafs. But that came from Rossi, so.....
