Flyers could host Rangers in Winter Classic (January 2, 2012 @ Citizens Bank Park)

The Flyers will host the 2012 Winter Classic at Citizens Bank Park, according to league sources, on Jan. 2 -- a day after when the event is usually held.

As reported last month, because the Eagles and Redskins are playing on Jan. 1 at Lincoln Financial Field (assuming an NFL season and end of the lockout), the league was considering moving the game back a day because, sources said, the NHL did not want to go head to head with the NFL on New Year's Day. Citizens Bank Park was the only option if the game were to be held in Philadelphia.

This will mark the second time in three years the Flyers are playing in the Winter Classic. They lost at Boston's Fenway Park in 2010 to the Bruins. This will be the fifth Winter Classic for the NHL and second in succession in Pennsylvania.
