Though it had been long-rumored that the 2015 Winter Classic would feature the Flyers playing against the Washington Capitals in Washington, it has been revealed that it was only a rumor. According to Yahoo Sports Canada, the 2015 Classic will feature the visiting Chicago Blackhawks taking on the Caps. The Flyers rumor was a strong one though:
“It’s an interesting choice for a number of reasons. The Winter Classic has traditionally featured geographic rivals, which is why some outlets were reporting the Philadelphia Flyers would be the opponent for the Capitals in 2015.”
The only thing left to decide now is the venue. Though Nationals Park seems most likely, I’d like to know what we have to do to get a Winter Classic at Camden Yards.
