The Flyers will host the New York Rangers in the 2012 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic.

 

Much has been written — and much has been criticized — about the way tickets are being distributed for fans of both teams, but here's your chance to get in on the action.

 

The NHL announced Thursday that fans can sign up for a random drawing for an opportunity to purchase two tickets to the Jan. 2 game at Citizens Bank Park. Simply go HERE and cross your fingers, say your prayers, praise the hockey gods, etc.

 

Registration for the general public drawing began Nov. 17 and runs through Nov. 27 at 11:59 a.m. There is no fee to enter and Citizens Bank Park holds 43,500 people.

 

Also, the award-winning HBO series, "24/7," premieres on Dec. 14 at 10 p.m.
