Flyers, Rangers set for 5th Winter Classic

PHILADELPHIA - September 26, 2011

The 45,000-seat ballpark is the setting for the fifth classic. The game is not held on its traditional Jan. 1 date because it conflicted with the final week of the NFL's regular season.

The NHL will again partner with HBO Sports and the broadcast "24/7" reality franchise.

Flyers chairman Ed Snider calls it an honor for the city to host the event.
