The problem with social media is that nothing can be a surprise anymore. So the NHL made official something all hockey fans have known for a few weeks now… The Bruins will take on he Chicago Blackhawks in the 2109 Winter Classic to be held at The University of Notre Dame.
This will make the 3rd time the Bruins will play outdoors and the 400th for the Blackhawks, who seem to be play outdoors at least 2x a season.
Apparently the NHL said, ” Wait a Minute. Notre Dame is the Fighting Irish, Boston has a big Irish population and so does Chicago, Perfect”!
NHL powers that be must have been up all night thinking of this one.
