For Christ's sake, you know why this thing hasn't been resolved yet? Because the the NHL is yet to reach a deal with the Phillies over using Citizens Bank Park. But the game is going to happen. Need more proof, just in case? Puck Daddy found item eight on the Flyers charity golf tournament auction list:
UPDATE: Not more than 20 minutes after we posted this, the auction item was removed:
Whelp, guess the game is back off… (nice spot by @one_curly_fry)
That's great and all, if not stating the obvious. I like item number seven better:
Trust me, kids, you don't want to sleep in a hockey locker room.
Puck Daddy points out that the auction item also all but confirms an Alumni Classic to take place on New Year's Eve. He wonders if the Flyers will invite Eric Lindros, so they can reunite the Legion of Doom. I would consider it a very high likelihood they do- wink and nudge.
H/T to the 900 people who sent us this, be sure to check out our Winter Classic category for all updates.
Also, Bryzgalov will apparently wear both masks (home and away) this year.
