Phillyburbs.com says the outdoor game, usually held New Year's Day, will be played Jan. 2 at Citizens Bank Park, home of the Phillies.
Lincoln Financial Field is not available because the Eagles play host to the Redskins on Jan. 1, which next year falls on a Sunday, filling it with NFL games. That is why the NHL has moved its fifth-annual event to Monday.
