James Taylor and Daniel Powter scheduled to sing National Anthems at Winter Classic

Bruins fans will not hear the familiar sound of Rene Rancourt flexing his golden pipes before the Winter Classic on the New Year's Day at Fenway Park. The NHL has opted to have James Taylor sing the U.S. National Anthem, while Daniel Powter will sing the Canadian National Anthem.

Normally, "Oh Canada" is only performed when one or more of the teams are from a Canadian city. The NHL is probably viewing this as a league event so they chose to include the Canadian anthem to represent their Canadian teams. The only other explainations are that Philadelphia has been annexed by our neighbors to the north or they just want the players and fans to stand still in the freezing cold for a few extra minutes like Little Richard in "Mystery, Alaska".
