NYR lineup in Philly tomorrow:
D Girardi, McDonagh, Del Zotto, Sauer, Erixon, Bickel.
Avery, Dubi, Boyle, Weise, Deveaux, Mitchell, Zuke, Christensen, Anisimov, Thuresson, Bourque, Wolski.
Two forwards won't be on the plane to Europe. So are the nine who are not playing safe? Certainly Callahan, Gaborik, Richards, Stepan, Boyle, Fedotenko and Rupp. Which leaves Hagelin and Newbury.
Torts sayd he has a good idea of who will be left in the U.S., but added that the performances against the Flyers will help solidify that. Someone could change his mind. My guess: Thuresson, Deveaux.
Captain Callahan, Richards and Lundqvist are expected to be present at the official announcement of the Winter Classic at 1:30 at Citizen's Bank Park
