    Report: Bruins to host Flyers at Fenway

    http://tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=282739

    Trenton, NJ (Sports Network) - The NHL's third Winter Classic will be played between the Philadelphia Flyers and Boston Bruins at Fenway Park on January 1, 2010.

    It is being reported by the Trentonian that the league was trying to push for a Washington/Boston matchup at Fenway in order to feature two-time Hart Trophy winner Alex Ovechkin. However, NBC, who will broadcast the game, wanted the Flyers so as to draw a better television audience.

    BTW, I think this is awesome, though TV having an effect on who plays is bogus.

    Stupid not to have your biggest known rivalry in your sport play vs. eachother. Especially with the B's sweep in the playoffs, next season should be quite the battle with the Habs.
    Keep it original 6 like Chicago/ Detroit was.

    NBC controls the Winter Classic. The reason that they don't have Montreal as the other team is because having two American cities is more profitible for them. Since they've taken over the Winter Classic, there has been no Canadian teams for a reason (this doesn't include the Heritage Classic)

    I would think Rangers/Bruins would generate more tv audience than the Flyers.  Of course, the Flyers hate the B's more, but Boston/New York?  At Fenway?

    NY will host the game next year at Yankee stadium, so they are out this year.  I like the flyers better than the Caps. The flyer fans are jerks and should make for a great new years day party down at the fens!

    Word on the street is that BC and BU are going to try and get in a game on the same ice surface before it is taken down... Double header anyone?

    The BC/BU game would actually be a lot of fun to watch.  And hey, if you're the Red Sox and you get some of the the gate/profits from having one game set up at Fenway, why not try and get more games in?  The rink is going to be there anyways!
