Ambitious Flyers manage to lose game in baseball stadium

The Philadelphia Flyers are now able to add a professional baseball stadium to the list of venues they have lost in this season.

An overtime goal by the Bruin’s Mark Sturm capped off the historic Flyers loss in the Winter Classic at Fenway Park, home to baseball’s Boston Red Sox.

“When you’re a professional hockey team, it’s pretty hard to lose a game in a baseball stadium,” said Danny Syvret, who scored the Flyers lone goal. “First, you have to actually play a hockey game in a baseball stadium, which almost never happens. Then you have to actually lose the game. I think only one other team has done what we did out there, which is pretty impressive when you think about it.”

The Flyers broke a skid of four straight wins with the loss to the Bruins and will look to become the only team to lose in a neighborhood cul-de-sac on Sunday as they take on the Senators in front of Jimmy’s house.
