Claude Giroux got an interesting phone call a few days before Sunday's Phildelphia Flyers practice for the 2012 Bridgestone Winter Classic.
It was his sister Isabelle's boyfriend, Eric, and he was looking for some advice.
"I'm going to propose to your sister, when should I do it?" he asked Giroux.
"Just do it on the ice," was Giroux's response.
So when the Flyers finished practice Sunday and their families were permitted to go for a little skate at Citizens Bank Park, Eric came prepared to pop the big question. Except it took him some time to build up the nerve.
