Rendering of what the NHL Winter Classic at Fenway Park might look like (Boston Herald Image by Sarah Kaempfe)
Gayle Lee and Laura Reposa of the Boston Herald are reporting that the Bruins will host the 2010 NHL Winter Classic at Fenway Park on New Year's Day. According to the report, the Bruins' opponent has not yet been named, although the idea of a Winter Classic featuring the Bruins and New York Rangers has been kicked around for months. The Montreal Canadiens have also been mentioned as a possibility.
The rumor mongering ladies of the Herald's Inside Track aren't always the most reliable source, so we will have to wait and see if this comes to fruition.
The Winter Classic is the biggest gimmick ever, but I am a sucker for it and I don't think I am alone. If this is true, I am really looking forward to seeing the B's play at Fenway.
