The Flint Firebirds will be hosting a home game against the London Knights at 7 pm at the Dow Event Center tonight.
“We are erring on the side of player safety by moving our game to Saginaw this evening,” Firebirds' team president Costa Papista said in an email earlier today. “We thank our season ticket holders, sponsors, fans and our local media members for their understanding. The Saginaw Spirit organization and the Dow Event Center have been tremendous partners by hosting our home date tonight. We are fortunate to have another first class facility and OHL partner 45 minutes north of Flint.”
All seating for tonight's game will be general admission for $10 at the door.
The Dow Event Center will honor all Firebird tickets and parking passes already held or purchased for tonight's event.
Saginaw Spirit season ticket holders and sponsors will receive discounted admission for $5 at the door.
While Flint and London take the ice in Saginaw tonight, the Spirit will be hitting the ice north of the border in Sault Ste. Marie.
The Spirit will play their last regular season road game at the Essar Centre in the Soo tonight. Face off is set for 7:05 p.m.
