The NHL Winter Classic Series has become an important and highly-anticipated event for many hockey fans. The idea is simple yet wonderful. Moving modern professional hockey – currently operating at its highest level – to an outdoor venue. It was on the frozen ponds and lakes of Canada that the great sport was initially created, founded and woven deep into the culture of the country.
As it evolved, the sport gained importance, prestige and the need to move indoors in order to remove the outside winter elements from the equation. But amazing outdoor stadiums have hosted hockey in recent years, re-introducing these rare occurrences in a gentle way. Citi Field is an architecturally splendid venue supported by a dozen or so brick archways and several dozen square glass panels. It is just a few steps away from the southern edge of Flushing Bay, and within a short drive of many entertainment, lodging and food options that rank highly on online review sites.
2018 NHL Winter Classic
The first NHL Winter Classic took place at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, New York back in 2008, when the Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Buffalo Sabres by a score of 2-1.
The Sabres will again be a component in the 2018 affair at Citi Field in Queens, New York. The gigantic, impressive and totally immaculate stadium was built and opened to the public a handful of years ago with the design of becoming the permanent home of the New York Mets of the National League. Obviously, the attractive NYC hotspot has garnered attention for other reasons, and it has officially spread its wings in order to host an array of other live sports and entertainment events.
When the New York Rangers square off against the Buffalo Sabres in the 2018 NHL Winter Classic, everyone in attendance will immediately have bragging rights, and conversation starters at Thanksgiving and Christmas parties from now until forever. In an interesting twist of events, it turns out that the Sabres will be the home team, despite the fact that Citi Field is located within the same metropolis as the New York Rangers.
