NHL set to announce Classic on Monday

The NHL is set to make a "major announcement" Monday at 1:30 p.m. ET at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, where it is expected to officially announce the Winter Classic clash between the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers.

It will be the fifth Winter Classic, but the first held on Jan. 2. The previous four Winter Classics were played on Jan. 1, but the NHL pushed this year's game back a day so it would not conflict with the NFL.
