  2. 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.

    EA Sports did one of their simulations to see how the Winter Classic between the Flyers and Rangers at Citizens Bank Park on January 2nd. According to their sim, the Flyers will win 3-1, which is nice. But my favorite part is the simulations ability to already know that Ilya Bryzgalov will in fact be in net. It will also snow, apparently.
