A video posted to YouTube late Monday night shows the uglier side of some NHL Winter Classic fans.
The video appears to be of men in Flyers jerseys and Rangers jerseys fighting outside famous South Philly cheesesteak shop Geno’s Steaks and was posted on the same day the two storied franchises faced off in the Winter Classic though it's unclear when the video was taken.
WARNING: The video titled “Winter Classic 2012, Rangers fan knocked out” contains graphic violence and language.
The video begins with what appears to be a Flyers fan wearing a No. 28 Claude Giroux Flyers jersey taking off his coat as he goads on a fan in a No. 24 Ryan Callahan Rangers jersey.
Suddenly the Flyers fan swings at the Rangers fan and a melee ensues right in the middle of the street.
The Rangers fan punches back but is quickly taken to the ground where a man in a No. 68 Jaromir Jagr Flyers jersey jumps in and begins pounding the Rangers fan. Suddenly the guy in the Giroux jersey and a man in a black co...

The Winter Classic is the NHLs best American marketing tool.
Better than points leader Claude Giroux, who might as well be Claude Gir-who outside the Northeast and the Midwest.
Better than the RedWings-Blackhawks, Rangers-Flyers or Bruins-Canadiens rivalries.
Better even than the Stanley Cup playoffs.
That admission may sting, but its the truth. Nothing captures the American...

Claude Giroux. Jaromir Jagr. Ilya Bryzgalov. The Philadelphia Flyers have many high-profile players that litter their roster. One player that seems to have no profile, and is a bit of an unknown, is Matt Read. The 25-year-old rookie forward has put together a first half that has impressed his teammates to no end.Matt Read, who spent four seasons at Bemidji State University,...
Claude Giroux and Jaromir Jagr hit the ice looking more ready to shag flies than practice the power play.

Nobody and I mean nobody can convince me that the referees were not purposely trying to get yesterday's Winter Classic into overtime to boost ratings. From the ridiculous delay of game on Ryan McDonagh to the holding the stick on Callahan and finally the hand over the puck in the crease also on McDonagh the refs almost ruined what was a magical weekend.It seems like many of the...
It's been a hell of a season for the New York Rangers through 37 games. Not only do they lead the entire National Hockey League with a 24-9-4 record, but they have stormed to the top despite many potential distractions standing in their way. They were first forced to begin the season in Europe and then in western Canada due to the renovation of Madison Square Garden. Once that...
