Outdoor NHL Hockey returns, in front of 71,000 fans

Now, let me be the first to say that I can't stand the NHL. Not for the past 10 years, anyway, and certainly not since the strike. But this is an idea of what they can do RIGHT:

71,000 seats sold out in under 30 minutes.

A point of interest: this game was originally supposed to be played between either LI or NY, and Boston, in Yankee Stadium. That plan got scrapped for some reason.

And a link. And a description. So, get over it.

Just noticed Ty Conklin in the net... he used to play for UNH.. Good collegiate hockey team, right along with Maine. I watched both of them growing up, however I'm more of a UMaine fan than UNH even though I live in NH now. I grew up in Maine and lived there for about 20 years.

Ty Conklin sucks. He was the backup to our backup in Edmonton before we got rid of him for a bag of pucks

That was a sweet idea and I hope they do it mucho more often. Glad they picked my Pens for the game too. Sid the Kidd is SWEET! My Pens have been on a role lately and are in 2nd place.

There's talks of one next year to celebrate the Montreal Canadiens 100th year of existance, possibly against the NY Rangers

Should be TML. I hate Toronto, but makes sense to do it against the other Canadian Original Six team.

I am not a big NHL fan, but I will admit it sounds a lot more interesting being outside. I would probably pay to go to a game like that (and a perk for the NHL, football stadiums tend to fit a lot more people then NHL rinks).
