So before I left to the game, I just wanted to give you all a quick update on the happening’s with the 2012 Winter Classic!
Journal Entry Three
I am currently in my freezing hotel room getting dressed and layered for the 3:00 p.m. Winter Classic start. The gates to the Citizen Bank Park open at 1:00 p.m. and the parking lot opened at 9:00 a.m. The weather is currently 39 degrees and sunny, with a 0% chance of rain. By the time the puck drops, the weather channel is predicting 40 degrees with a 20% chance of precipitation. Let’s hope that precipitation turns in snow!
- Patti LaBelle will be using her pipes to sing the National Anthem right before puck drop
- Sergei Bobrovsky will be the starting goal-tender for the Philadelphia Flyers
- Henrik Lundqvist will be the starting goal-tender for the New York Rangers
- Scratches for the New York Rangers: Erik Christensen
- Scratches for the Philadelphia Flyers: Zac Rinaldo, Jody Shelley, and Matt Walker
