For the 11th year in a row the NHL has held the Winter Classic. The popularity of the event is not the same when it first started but it is still one of the best sporting events of the year.
This year we saw the Bruins take on the Blackhawks at Notre Dame and it was a hell of a game. In recent years the Winter Classic games have been half ass but this year was not the case.
It all started with the National Anthem it gave everyone the chills. I can only imagine how fired up the players were after this. I was fired up after this performance.
The Bruins came out buzzing to start the game they were all over the Blackhawks but it was the Hawks who scored blood first. The Bruins tied it up after Boston’s top line came through once again. Not sure how I feel about the Pasta celebration but the more I watch it the more I love it.
The second period was all Blackhawks but the Bruins were able to stay in there and come out with a tie score.
The third period was back to all Bruins and the hero was Sean Kuraly who scored the go ahead goal about halfway through the third. The Bruins played well for most of the game and this is a positive.
As a team the Bruins are starting to feel themselves and getting their swagger back that helped them last year. Just look at how they showed up to the game. After seeing this you should have out your whole life savings on the Bruins.
Overall what a great way to start 2019 as a hockey fan with two Original 6 teams battling it out outdoors. Even better start to 2019 if you are a Bruins fan.
