Earlier in the year, it was announced that the NHL Winter Classic would be making its way back to Boston in 2023. When first announced, the NHL provided the details that the game would be held at Fenway Park, the home of the Boston Red Sox of the MLB. Just this morning, the NHL released new details for the matchup that will take place on January 2nd, 2023, as the Boston Bruins will be taking on the Pittsburgh Penguins outdoors in the heart of Beantown during one of the coldest months in New England.

Heading Back to Fenway

This will be the second time the Bruins will lace them up outdoors at Fenway Park, with the first game coming back in 2010 when they hosted the Philadelphia Flyers and defeated them 2-1 in overtime. Both Boston and Pittsburgh have played their fair share of outdoor games as this will be the Bruins’ fifth appearance (2010,2016,2019,2021), while this will be the Penguin’s sixth (2008,2011,2014,2017,2019).

Bruins Know a Thing or Three about Winning Outdoors

Boston has achieved great success when playing in outdoor games as they have compiled an all-time record of 3-1-0, with their last two matchups resulting in wins. The Bruins have faced Philadelphia twice in outdoor games, one being at Fenway Park, as mentioned previously, and the other coming in 2021 at Lake Tahoe, which saw Boston have an offensive explosion that led them to a 7-3 victory. The Bruin’s other two matchups came against the Montreal Canadiens back in 2016 at Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots of the NFL, resulting in a 5-1 loss; the second matchup being in 2019 against the Chicago Blackhawks at Notre Dame Stadium that resulted in a 4-2 Bruins’ victory.
