Sather sets tone for Winter Classic with remarks

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

PHILADELPHIA -- Sitting on the stage built overtop the Philadelphia Phillies dugout, Glen Sather ears buzzed Monday as the roughly 1,500 Philadelphia Flyers season ticket holders in the stands at Citizens Bank Park gave him a calm and respectful round of applause.
 
Sather, the New York Rangers president and GM, sauntered to the podium and admitted how awkward he felt being at what he called "a pep rally in Philadelphia, adding that he couldn't believe he got a round of applause in Philadelphia -- even if it was a celebratory press conference to announce the 2012 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic between Sather's Rangers and the hometown Flyers.
 
But, after lauding the Flyers and their founder and owner Ed Snider, Sather fired a salvo that brought out the reaction he and the Rangers are used to receiving here in the City of Brotherly Love.

Flyers better equipped to soak in second Classic

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Having already experienced playing one NHL game outside, members of the Philadelphia Flyers can't wait to play outdoors again.

When the 2012 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic is played on Jan. 2, 2012 at Philadelphia's Citizens Bank Park, the Flyers will host the League's mid-winter showcase.

Not that there weren't a healthy helping of Flyers fans in attendance at Boston's Fenway Park for the 2010 Classic.

"We only received about 5,000 tickets and there had to be 12,000, 15,000 Flyers fans," Flyers President Peter Luukko told NHL.com. "I don't know where they got them, but it was great."

David Kalan - NHL.com Staff Writer

With Monday's announcement that the 2012 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic will be played Jan. 2 at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, preparations have begun for the League's annual New Year's showcase. The game between the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers will be the fifth Winter Classic, but the event already has become one of the highlights of the season, one steeped in drama and tradition.

We have seen several memorable moments on the ice and off, from the idyllic scene of Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby celebrating a shootout winner in a picturesque snowfall to watching Marco Sturm of the Boston Bruins set off a manic explosion on the frozen dirty water of Fenway Park.

The ice truck is ready to roll out of Toronto. Dan Craig is ready to build another rink for the National Hockey League's signature regular season game.

"Let's take the truck out and put it to work," Craig excitedly told NHL.com.

He'll have to wait a couple of months, but Craig, the League's ice guru, has his plans mapped out for the 2012 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. He can't wait to tackle yet another challenge.

The League is expected to take over the Phillies' home park on Dec. 19 and Craig is responsible for having the rink ready for a Flyers-Rangers alumni game on Dec. 31. The current Rangers and Flyers will play the fifth Winter Classic game and seventh regular-season outdoor game in NHL history on Jan. 2.
