Confirmed: Flyers to wear ’70’s whites at Winter Classic

Although the Flyers will officially unveil their retro-style jerseys at 2 p.m. today, at the Skate Zone in Voorhees, N.J., a source has confirmed to Philabright that they will indeed be the white jerseys from Stanley Cup champion teams of ’74 and ’75.

The organization wanted to keep the jersey style under wraps for as long as possible, to make the debut somewhat of a spectacle.  Ian Laperriere, Danny Briere and Braydon Coburn will shoot three pucks at a cut block of ice containing the jersey.  Once released, the players will put on the jersey for media photos.

Live streaming of the event can be found on CsnPhilly.com and Philadelphiaflyers.com.
