The Scoreboard

The Flyers practice at Fenway Park

The Flyers are getting ready for the NHL Winter Classic game against the Bruins at Fenway Park. Riding a four game winning streak after a 6-0 pounding of the Rangers on Wednesday, the Flyers may be starting to come around under new coach Peter Laviolette. It looks like they may be grasping his puck pursuit system and may be better conditioned to play it. The team practiced at Fenway on New Year’s Eve in what was a festive atmosphere. Let’s home they can keep up the momentum despite the distractions of the big event.

2009 Winter Classic Set: Detroit vs. Chicago

Those of us hoping for the NHL Winter Classic of 2009  between the Flyers and Penguins at Penn State will have to keep waiting.  The Minneapolis Star-Tribune is reporting that the 2009 Winter Classic game on New Year’s Day will feature the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks at Wrigley Field, to be announced next week.  OK, not a bad choice: the Stanley Cup champions against an up-and-coming team with some good young players along with an historic rivalry.  The Winter Classic game last year was really unique and great for the NHL.  The snow just made it a perfect presentation.  I am glad the league appears committed to doing one of these each New Year’s Day.
