The evolution of Winter Classic advertising continues for the NHL and NBC. This time, they've gone all split-personality on us, offering up a stoic athlete commercial highlighting the rivalry for the Philadelphia Flyers and the New York Rangers (and their respective cities); as well as a spot that accurately portrays the Classic as a beer-soaked social gathering for Caucasians...
The Flyers have announced that two-time Stanley Cup champion and Hall of Fame goaltender Bernie Parent will play in the Flyers-Rangers Outdoor Alumni Game on Dec. 31 at Citizens Bank Park.
In addition, Flyers Hall of Fame goaltender Ron H...
