The first period of the 2012 NHL Winter Classic ended scoreless, but the second period has given way to goals. The Flyers got it started when Brayden Schenn, who was the centerpiece of the deal that sent Mike Richards to the Kings, scored his first NHL goal when he slapped in a rebound of a Matt Carle shot.
The Flyers would add to their lead just 2 minutes later when Max Talbot found Claude Giroux streaking to the net. Henrik Lundqvist stopped Giroux on a breakaway earlier in the game, but the NHL's second leading scorer would not be denied again and beat Lundqvist to make it 2-0 Flyers.
The momentum would be short lived however as just :30 later Mike Rupp would beat Sergei Bobrovsky to cut the lead back to one. With 20 minutes left to play it's Flyers 2, Rangers 1 at Citizens Bank Park.
