Photos: Building an outdoor rink

By ESPN.com

Construction began on the outdoor rink at Citizens Bank Park on Monday. Ice guru Dan Craig has until Jan. 2 to get ready for the 2012 Winter Classic between the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers, an eternity of time compared to last year when Craig's crew only had six days to transform Heinz Field into an ice rink.
