Winter Classic 2012 Update 11.30.2011
On Thanksgiving Saturday, the Flyers and Rangers had a pre-Winter Classic clash. The Flyers went from Broad Street to Broadway and lost to the Rangers 2-0. The Flyers are a bit banged up and didn't trot out Jaromir Jagr, James van Reimsdyk or Chris Pronger. Pronger also just underwent knee surgery on his left knee and will be out for four weeks.
HBO has also released their preview for their award-winning documentary 24/7 Flyers Rangers: Road to the Winter Classic.
And the smack talk has gotten personal. Flyers Winger Jody Shelly called out Rangers Forward Brandon Dubinsky (both who were once teammates) saying that he "plays like a little weasel." Dubinsky response was a bit long-winded but essentially thinks Shelly is "a terrible hockey player" who will be "out of the league" due to his bad play.
As we all eagerly anticipate the 2011-2012 NHL season, one of the most watched games of the year will undoubtedly be the 2012 Winter Classic, which the NHL confirmed yesterday will be between the New York Rangers and the Philadelphia Flyers.
The annual Winter Classic, a regular-season game played outdoors, will take place at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia on January 2nd, 2012 at 1:00 PM.
This is the New York Rangers first time in the league's Winter Classic while this marks the second time the Philadelphia Flyers have been involved - losing 1-2 in OT against the Boston Bruins in 2010.
