Caps out, Flyers in for Winter Classic?

"NHL sources have confirmed to WEEI.com that the Philadelphia Flyers have taken the lead as the opponent for the Boston Bruins [for the 2010 Winter Classic]. Multiple reports had named the Washington Capitals as the leader in the clubhouse to take on the B’s on New Year’s Day, but multiple hockey sources revealed there are concerns from NBC over television ratings with the Capitals – who are being pushed by the NHL. The NBC is instead pushing for the Philadelphia Flyers, according to the source, and the odds are growing higher by the day that the Flyers will be traveling to the Fens in January. The Bruins and NHL officials are expected to make the announcement official next month in a press conference at Fenway Park. Expect the Flyers to be the hockey team that suits up against the Bruins inside the Lyric Little Bandbox on Yawkey Way." - WEEI (h/t KK)
