hf101 Posted January 2, 2014 Share Posted January 2, 2014 I have to say I didn't have a lot of interest prior to the game until yesterday as I caught portions of the player practices, interviews as I got ready for our annual New Years Eve Party. But I think NBC and the NHL have got it right to hold an annual big event on New Years Day. I went to the Winter Classic in Philly a couple of years ago and enjoyed it thoroughly. Being able to relax and watch this game annually is probably right up there with watching the super bowl. Thought the Red and Blue sweaters for both teams were great. The game definitely got more exciting as the afternoon wore on. There were some other quality moments in the game as well, like the Zetterberg pass to Alfie's goal. Having the opportunity to play in the Classic probably was one of the reasons why Alfredsson made the right choice to sign in Detroit. Bernier played well and deserved the win. One has to wonder what might have happened though on Zetterberg's breakaway that was stopped at the 2:30 mark of OT. I'm also curious to see if Lupul will face a suspension for the crosscheck to the neck of Eaves. That should have at least been a 5 min major, imo. http://prohockeytalk.nbcsports.com/2014/01/01/video-lupul-crosschecks-eaves-in-winter-classic/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
