-- Jeremy Roenick
wasn't hiding the fact he could've used a little assistance during the Philadelphia Flyers
' alumni practice Friday here at Skate Zone.
"This place needs air," he said, wheezing in front of the benches after a few breakout drills.
"I was trying to find the wind out there," Roenick said afterward, seemingly still trying to catch his wind. "It was fun, though. It was great seeing all the fans out there. What a showing for us old guys who come around and embarrass ourselves out there. What a great feeling being back in here. Awesome."
It was as if time folded back onto itself on a sheet of ice that's about 20 minutes away from where the 2012 Molson Canadian Winter Classic Alumni Game between the Flyers and Rangers will take place at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia (3 p.m., Versus, CBC).
