Reports out of Philadelphia had the Rangers and Flyers playing the NHL’s annual outdoor game at Citizens Bank Ballpark on Jan. 2, though neither the Rangers nor the NHL could confirm as of Friday.

The Rangers have wanted to host the game, but Yankee Stadium adding the Pinstripe Bowl last year scuttled that possibility. Citi Field would like to host the game, but the NHL is not so excited about that prospect.

The Flyers faced the Bruins at Fenway Park on New Year’s Day of 2010.
