    Idk they play in Philly the night before. So probably just playing off the back-to-back maybe?
    Maybe they will be talking old history versus new history.

    i miss the days when the second game of a back to back was a hackfest with lots of knuckles.

    just dont get that stuff much these days, but still nice that they set this up for these two teams

    At least this slate is in Philadelphia first
    So players can get to their teams like normal human beings from Canada, instead of going to uncasville first via Wells Fargo wagon

    I'm curious if they will fly between the cities or will take the train like the Philadelphia Eagles do when they play in NJ.

    This is the NLL. They'll probably take a bus.
    chuckster and Hollywood42 like this.

    I’m sure they will bus, it’s cheaper it’s 4.5 hours so it’s not that bad a ride
    It’s the nll they aren’t going to fly to Boston then bus 2 hours, cut out the middle man and just do it in one shot

    I go to both the Philly and DC areas several times a year for work and it is FAR easier to drive there from SE CT. By the time you throw in driving to Hartford or Providence, parking, check in, security, boarding half hour prior to take off, etc, it ends up taking the same amount of time to just drive. I also don't have to worry about delays or cancellations. The argument against driving, though, is that I don't have to fly the plane - just kick back a read a book.

    It's not like the players would be driving the bus, a bus is probably more comfortable, and they would be going to Boston, not Hartford or Providence. I can't see any reason why they wouldn't drive up from Philly.

    Also, for some reason I feel like I've seen somewhere that players are often flown into Newark, not always Boston, and bused to the casino.

    I think the Bandits and Hawks have bused to NE for games in previous years......not sure about if the Rock do it. I know the Bandits have flown to Boston and then bused to CT.

    The Rock probably fly to games in New England. They flew to Philadelphia during the previous incarnation of away games in Philadelphia.

    Agreed it will have to be busted, connections would take too long for other options.
