the 2012 NHL Winter Classic will be on January 2, 2012 In Philadelphia New York Rangers @ Philadelphia Flyers at Citizens Bank Park home of the Phillies seats hold over 40k http://www.csnphilly.com/05/12/11/S...er/news_flyers.html?blockID=521730&feedID=695 They really want it to be on jan 1 and at Lincoln financial Field which holds 68k. but the Redskins and Eagles are set to play on jan 1 at the Linc. Now if the NFL does Cancel maybe they will change the date. But I doubt that. ONce the date is announced that is usually it. Manily for logistics puproses. Now with it being on a Monday jan 2 They might make this a prime time game. the Caps Pens were changed to night due to the rain forecasted for the day. NHL did better in the ratings for a night winter classic. So will see. As of now times haven't been announced.
