NBC SPORTS GEARS UP FOR THE 2012 NHL WINTER CLASSIC AND THE LAUNCH OF THE NBC SPORTS NETWORK
The 2012 NHL Winter Classic airs Monday, January 2 at 1 p.m. ET live from Citizens Bank Park where the Philadelphia Flyers host their division rival the New York Rangers.
The same day will mark the launch of the NBC Sports Network, which is being re-branded from VERSUS.
