  1. If Only the Winter Classic Had Ended Like This

    Jan 10, 2012, 11:42 AM EDT

    It would have been perfect. The “home” team scores with seconds remaining in regulation — perhaps on a made-for-TV penalty shot — to send the game into overtime. Once in the extra time, the “Philly” team gets one past the opposing goalie, triggering 45,000+ at Citizens Bank Park to go Bonkers.

    New York Rangers coach John Tortorella had some choice words for the refs following his team’s victory over the Flyers in the Winter Classic on Monday, noting that their calls were probably influenced by the executives at NBC likely wanting a wild finish.

  13. Awful Video: Flyers and Rangers Fans Fight at Geno’s After Winter Classic

    Jan 3, 2012, 9:53 PM EDT

    As Philadelphians, we’re quite sad to see that someone who came to watch their New York Rangers, in the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that the Winter Classic provided, couldn’t even come enjoy a South Philly cheesesteak without finding trouble. Regardless of who really started the fight, it just sucks to see. [video below]

  17. Bitter End to Brilliant Classic: Rangers Outlast Flyers

    Jan 2, 2012, 8:48 PM EDT

    Highlights from the 2012 Winter Classic, including video of the performance by The Roots. The 2012 NHL Winter Classic lived up to every bit of hype that has been piled on it over the past year. The teams represented one of the league’s best rivalries, and each side was at the top of the Atlantic Division and the Eastern Conference for the period leading up to and including game. Unfortunately for Flyers fans, although the net result of participation in the event was positive, the finale was disappointing.

    Despite a hard-fought 60 minutes, the Flyers wilted in the third period, and goaltending was—predictably—one of the deciding factors. It’s also a clear difference between the Flyers and the team they trail in the division.

    Below, a look at the best and worst the day had to offer.
