Report: Flyers to Play Capitals in 2015 Winter Classic
This report comes from Eklund over at HockeyBuzz.com, where he is reporting that the Flyers will travel to Washington to face off against the Capitals in perhaps the single most exciting game in the NHL season.
If true, this would be the Flyers’ 3rd Winter Classic (2010, 2012, 2015) of the past 5 held (the 2013 matchup between the Red Wins and Maple Leafs was cancelled due to the lockout).
CSNPhilly.com’s Tim Panaccio followed up on the rumors:
A Flyers official said Monday morning that the club understood it was a finalist but had not been notified.
However, that same official wondered if the Caps had sent a hidden message to Philly recently by wearing their third jersey — the previous Winter Classic jersey — against the Flyers on Dec. 17 at Wells Fargo Center.
