Yep. New Year’s Day. Chicago. Wings/Hawks. Outside. Confirmed.
Jan. 1, 2009 figures to be another historic day for the venerable old ballpark when it opens its doors to the National Hockey League for NHL Winter Classic 2009, which this time features an Original Six matchup.
The host Chicago Blackhawks will square off against the defending Stanley Cup champions, the Detroit Red Wings, in a 1 p.m. ET game.
Hey. How’s Little Gary feel about this opportunity to bend the Wings over yet again?
“The NHL is delighted to bring its most historic rivalry to one of the most historic venues in sports,” NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said.
Only little men like Little Gary use “delighted” in a sentence, unless they’re from Denver.
Speaking of schedules, as soon as LG decides it’s ok for us to see where and when the Wings play next season? We’re going to break it down into events that deserve our attention. Rumor has it that in the process we’ll go ahead and throw a few jabs at people who deserve it.

About Abel to Yzerman
Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
