From the area to other.
Have any of writers/readers of this blog been in any Winter Classic games? Any thought to share or memories?
I'm going to have my first one with another reader of this blog: Kyrpis. This is the first time something like this is happening in Finland - or at least in my memory.
Game is Jokerit - HIFK. Both teams are from Helsinki so the game is on Olympic Stadion (stadium) in Helsinki.
(There was a hockey game in Stadium, Finland - Sweden in 1941, during times of war, but this should be different, since it's a league game, like games in NHL. There were also some games outside in 60's, but still not the same thing.)
I'm lookin forward what the evening brings and it's cool to see things from NHL going to Europe also. If you have some memories, do share, otherwise it's game time.
After them Stars comes not close, but second: Jokerit, so hope they win. Otherwise it's just having fun with Kyrpis, his kids and friends.
