The Bruins will play the Flyers in the great outdoors, at Lake Tahoe, Nev., the NHL announced Monday.

The game is Sunday, Feb. 21, at 3 p.m. on NBC. The Avalanche and Golden Knights will play the day before, also at 3 p.m.

“It is always an honor for the Bruins to be chosen to play in one of the NHL’s premier events,” Bruins president Cam Neely said in a release. “Each time we have played outdoors it has been a great experience for our players and fans, and we expect Lake Tahoe to be the same. It promises to be a unique environment which will make for a great TV viewing experience.”

The game will be the fourth outdoors for the Bruins. They defeated the Flyers, 2-1, in overtime, at Fenway Park in 2010. The Bruins also lost to the Canadiens, 5-1, at Gillette Stadium in 2016 and beat the Blackhawks, 4-2, at Notre Dame Stadium in 2019.
