Flyers to Host Rangers in 2012 NHL Winter Classic

Annual outdoor winter game has officially been released in the 2011-12 schedule

The Flyers/Rangers NHL Winter Classic had been all but written in stone. Now, it’s been officially etched into the NHL’s 2011-12 schedule for 1 p.m. on January 2nd (observed holiday) at Citizens Bank Park. The Scoop thinks that an outdoor-hockey, Monday matinee isn’t a bad way to cap off a long weekend of toasts, college football and Mummers. [Crossing Broad]
