Taking This A Little Too Far

from Donna Goodison of the Boston Herald,

The success of the NHL Winter Classic at Fenway Park [map] has prompted House Speaker Robert DeLeo to lobby the league for an annual outdoor hockey match featuring the Boston Bruins [team stats].

DeLeo sent a letter to National Hockey League Commissioner Gary Bettman, asking him to consider having an outdoor Bruins game each year somewhere in the Greater Boston area.

“For the NHL, maintaining a permanent outdoor presence in Boston could help to both solidify the league’s base in our area and help ensure a healthy future for the game,” DeLeo wrote in the letter. “It is my hope that this event can be recreated - even if not on New Year’s Day, of course - in the years ahead. As last week’s game showed, fans in Boston - the ‘Hub of Hockey’ and the best sports town in America - are eager to support an outdoor hockey game year after year.”
