PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Flyers will host the New York Rangers in the NHL Winter Classic on Jan. 2 at Citizens Bank Park.

The 45,000-seat ballpark is the setting for the fifth classic. The game is not held on its traditional Jan. 1 date because it conflicted with the final week of the NFL’s regular season.

The NHL will again partner with HBO Sports and the broadcast “24/7″ reality franchise.

Flyers chairman Ed Snider calls it an honor for the city to host the event.
