Get ready, because the Winter Classic is back! For all those hockey fans who didn’t quite get their fill from the shortened season due to the lockout…have no fear because another season is just a couple months away. And this time it’s going to be a full season, complete with that annual tradition known as the Winter Classic.
The Winter Classic is a regular season game that’s played outdoors to help promote the game and to tap into the past when all the games were played on outdoor rinks. In the 2014 version of the game, two of the league’s original six teams face off against each other, as the Detroit Red Wings host the Toronto Maple Leafs at Michigan Stadium on New Year’s Day.
Could Be Record Breaking
Michigan Stadium is the highest capacity stadium in all of North America. This means that it’s going to be loud and it’s going to be raucous. And with Toronto just a few hours down the highway, there should be quite the mix of Wings and Leafs fans packed into those seats. In reality, there will be fans from all across the US and Canada making their way to Michigan for the game for their chance to be a part of history.
The organizers of this season’s game are hoping to break a Guinness World Record for an NHL crowd, and with the stadium set up for hockey and every seat filled they should be able to do just that.
