The Flyers and Rangers may have gotten the attention of the hockey world Monday with the 2012 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic, but now it's time for minor leaguers and college kids to get in on the outdoor fun and NHL Network will have fans covered.
This weekend NHL Network will be broadcasting three outdoor games across the U.S. and Canada. On Friday, the AHL's Hershey Bears and Adirondack Phantoms will use the same ice the Rangers and Flyers used Monday at Citizens Bank Park, and NHL Network-US will provide a full replay Saturday afternoon at 4 p.m. ET.
On Sunday, NHL Network will show tape-delayed coverage of Saturday's Hockey East action at Frozen Fenway 2012, a doubleheader at Fenway Park, site of the 2010 Winter Classic between Boston and Philadelphia. Sunday's outdoor games will be broadcast in both the U.S. and Canada. The first matchup, between Vermont and Massachusetts will be broadcast on NHL Network on Sunday at 1:30 p.m. ET and will be followed at 4 p.m. by rivals Maine and New Hampshire.
Each broadcast Sunday of Frozen Fenway 2012 will be blacked out in the Boston market.
