Winter Classic Jerseys Confirmed

After weeks of speculation, could these be the Flyers Winter Classic sweaters?

A source within the organization has confirmed, that they are indeed what the team will wear January 2, 2012.

The Big E Returns

#88 is back in Philadelphia after a decade-long divorce. After John LeClair was confirmed to play in the Winter Classic Alumni game, Lindros tossed his hat in the ring. Has anyone seen Mikael Renberg? John Russo has the story.

Lindros Return In The Works?

Monday night, Justin Johnson of The Hockey Writers and The Hockey Guys released an exclusive one-on-one interview with Eric Lindros.

The interview is definitely worth a read, but perhaps the most interesting answers 'Big E' had were in reference to the Winter Classic alumni game.

Philadelphia Sports Daily releases the real Winter Classic jerseys for the Flyers, though they have not been officially confirmed.

Round 1: Rangers vs. Flyers (Things might get Messy)

For a game that was scheduled at the end of September, Monday night’s Flyers-Rangers bout would have been better served as a game that took place at the end of April. But regardless of the date on the calendar, Philadelphia’s 5-3 victory over New York was a preview to the kind of animosity that will be brewing between the two teams prior to January’s Winter Classic.

Finally, Winter Classic is Officially Official

“On behalf of the NHL I am pleased to finally announce that on January 2nd at 1 pm the 2012 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic will be played here, at Citizens Bank Park by the Philadelphia Flyers and the New York Rangers” Commissioner Gary Bettman told reporters. “Hopefully it will be easier to put on […] then it was to put on this event.”

Commissioner Bettman was also able to confirm that the ancillary project “24/7” would be produced for a second consecutive season by HBO. Last year’s show gave viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the players lives leading up to the 2011 Winter Classic.
