Now it’s supposed to be windy for the Winter Classic

Instead of worrying about rain, now we get to worry about wind.

Indeed, the weather forecast for the Winter Classic on Jan. 2 in Philadelphia has changed ever so slightly.

Courtesy The Weather Channel:


Remember that the Flyers and Rangers will switch ends at the 10:00 mark of the third period to minimize any wind advantage one team might get over the other. However, wind can always change, in force and/or direction, so it could still be a factor. Especially on field goals.
