Rangers fan beaten at Winter Classic
PHILADELPHIA -- Police in Philadelphia are seeking the public's help in identifying three men involved in a fight between Flyers and Rangers fans outside a cheesesteak shop after Monday's Winter Classic hockey game.
Philadelphia police on Wednesday released an edited version of a YouTube video of the altercation, which ends with a Rangers fan lying stunned on the street.
Investigators say a man in a Flyers jersey is the main aggressor, throwing the first punch after a verbal dispute. Two other men join in the fight, which also involves a second Rangers fan.
Authorities say one victim needed stitches for his injuries. Family members told WNBC-TV that one victim is a Woodbridge Township, N.J., police officer and former Marine who served in Iraq.
