It'll be New York vs. New Jersey in Saturday's Hurricane Sandy charity hockey game at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. Former Flyer Todd Fedoruk tweeted the full lineups for the game on Monday, and we're sure it'll only be a day or two before Bobby Ryan requests a trade:
The so-called "NY Team" will play to benefit the Empire State Relief Fund. As follows:
And the so-called "Philly Team," playing to benefit the New Jersey State Relief Fund:
I can put aside the Devils thing and root for Brodeur, Clarkson and Greene ... just for a night, though.

This game is going to be awesome. Tickets are still available through Ticketmaster or the Boardwalk Hall box office (609-348-7000), but they're running out fast and we could see a sold out crowd come Saturday night. It won't be on TV as far as we know, so just buy a ticket already.
