There are few sporting events I enjoy more than the NHL playoffs, so in that spirit, our folks at the Eye on Hockey blog have two baseball-related hockey notes to share:
• The Phillies' Citizen Bank Park may be next up for the Winter Classic. Although last year's event at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh was considered a success, the NHL prefers the "coziness and layout" of a baseball park for its signature event. The Eagles have a home game on New Year's Day.
• Also, there's a report that former Brave Tom Glavine is interested in putting together a group to buy the Atlanta Thrashers. Glavine was actually drafted by both MLB and the NHL out of high school.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
