Sources confirmed months ago the Bruins have been awarded next year’s NHL Winter Classic, and will play the game at Fenway on Jan. 1, and multiple reports had also indicated that the Washington Capitals would be the Black and Gold’s opponent in hockey’s showpiece event.
The Boston Metro has come out with a report that Boston College is already confirmed to play in an outdoor college hockey game that’s been added to next year's festivities at the Fenway Winter Classic. Boston University is also in talks to play in the outdoor college hockey game, according to the Metro report, and multiple NHL sources have confirmed to WEEI.com that the Philadelphia Flyers have taken the lead as the opponent for the Bruins in the 2010 Winter Classic.
Multiple reports had named Washington as the leader in the clubhouse to take on the B’s on New Year’s Day next winter, but multiple league sources revealed there are concerns at NBC over television ratings with the Capitals, who are being pushed by the NHL. The network is instead holding out for Philadelphia, according to the sources, and the odds are improving daily 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 announcing the 2010 Winter Classic. For more info, check in at Big Bad Blog.
