After months of speculation, the NHL finally made the official announcement that the Rangers will play the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2012 Winter Classic.

Here’s everything you need to know about the game:

When: Monday, January 2, 2012, 1:00 p.m.

Where: Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia


- No jerseys have been revealed yet.

- Here’s the Rangers’ logo for the Classic.

- HBO shot some promotional footage for “24/7: Road to the Winter Classic” at training camp on September 14th  and was on hand for today’s announcement.  The network should be a staple around the club for the next few months.  The show will debut on Wednesday, December 14th at 10:00 p.m. and will air four episodes, according to Steve Zipay.

- Ticket info is still sketchy.  The Flyers are waiting for the NHL to determine how many more seats can be put into Citizens Bank Park before setting prices and putting them on sale.  Flyers’ season-ticket holders will get first crack at buying them.

- The Rangers and Flyers will also play an alumni game on December 31st at 1:00 p.m.  Here’s a look at who might be on the Rangers’ alumni squad.

- Here’s a look at how the rink will fit on the baseball field.  And a view from behind home plate.

- Check out the official game puck.

- The Rangers are holding a drawing for one fan to win a “Winter Classic Road Trip Experience for Two.”  Details here.

- Rangers GM Glen Sather spoke at the press conference and delivered the following line, "We're coming to Philadelphia and we're going to win the game."  No, this wasn’t a guarantee, but it was an amusing attempt by Slats to get a rise out of the generally cordial audience.

- Sather also said, “At the end of year we're going to be carrying the Cup after the Yankees win the World Series.”
