This afternoon, the Detroit Red Wings and the Toronto Maple Leafs take center ice for a game that only happens once a year; the 2014 Bridgestone Winter Classic.
The Winter Classic is one of those games that people look forward to all year long. Unfortunately, this was also a game that was stolen from us last season thanks to the NHL Lockout. Fortunately for all of us, this year we are ready to rumble.
The outdoor games are always the most interesting. The elements are not something that most NHLers are used to dealing with. Sometimes we take for granted the air conditioned arenas that protect us from the chilling winds and the sometimes blinding snow flurries. This game really illustrates what a team is made of.
