Happy Alumni Game Day

Dec 31, 2011, 11:47 AM EDT

The Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers alumni will play an outdoor game at Citizens Bank Park as a lead up to the NHL Winter Classic

A who’s who of Flyers all-time greats will don the orange and black one more time today for the NHL Winter Classic Alumni Game. For Flyers fans who came of age in the late 1980′s and early 1990′s the chance to see Eric Lindros in a Flyers uniform is special.

Seeing him play on the same team as Bobby Clarke – even in an alumni game – is something altogether different. The only two Flyers to ever win the Hart Trophy, with a history straight straight out of a Shakespeare or Puzo novel, will share the ice today. Perhaps time does heal all wounds?

 

It promises to be a remarkable event. Want to whet your appetite? Check out the interview with #88 after the jump.

A quick public service announcement: The Alumni Game has been pushed back to 3PM. Ice conditions should be a bit better later in the afternoon, so they decided to start a bit later.

Here’s an interview with Eric Lindros from SportsNet. Note, CSN will broadcast the game live.
