NHL Winter Classis is a HUGE HIT!!!!
The National Hockey League came up big with Winter Classic in Buffalo yesterday.
This may have been the NHL's finest hour in decades, the roar of the crowd, the huge snowflakes and the always amazing Sidney Crosby at his best. A true hockey fan couldn't ask for much more than was provided in this game. There was end to end action, solid goaltending and the ambiance of the blowing snow. This game had it all and then to finish with a very exciting overtime and shootout highlight that will be shown for decades, was hockey heaven.
Way to go Gary Bettman, the Pittsburgh Penguins and the great hockey fans of Buffalo and their hard-working and exciting Sabres.
I have talked with so many hockey fans about the game yesterday and more importantly non-hockey watching people that watched the game and absolutely loved it.
I know yesterday that I missed being a kid playing shinny hockey on the outdoor rinks in Edmonton, Alberta where I grew up.
This was a great moment for the National Hockey League and all of those ever associated with the great game of hockey.
Thanks to the NHL, NHLPA and most of all to the players on both the Buffalo Sabres and Pittsburgh Penguins for putting on such a great show.
