Fenway to host Winter Classic

The Herald is reporting that Fenway Park will be the next home for the Winter Classic. It will be interesting to see who the opponent will be but the Canadiens and Rangers are the top choices. To read the entire article, check it out here,

Sweet! Tenative date is January 1st, 2010. Bring on the Habs or the Rangers. The Canadians played in the first Winter Classic vs. Edmonton a few years back so the NHL might want the Rangers instead. NHL usually announces their schedule sometime in July.

The Canadiens played in the Heritage Classic against Edmonton, it was a different game, held on November 22nd 2003. Even though it was an outdoor game, it was a one time thing featuring the Mega Stars game before hand. It was to celebrate the two last hockey Dynasties (70's Canadiens and the 80's Oilers).

I wouldn't consider this a make or break thing for the Canadiens playing in the Winter Classic.

In other news, Ty Conklin is going to be playing for Montreal next year. :)

Screw the Habs. Not good enough for this game. If the NHL wants to use this game to expose the US to good hockey, 7th or 8th place teams are not good enough!!!!

The Habs standings has nothing to do with it. This is one of the greatest match-ups in all of sports !! Everyone knows the history of Bruins - Habs !!

whoever said screw the habs is a complete imbicile. That matchup is a hockey fans dream. There's no love lost between those two teams, even if one is at the top of the standings and the other at the bottom; they always play hard, and it's always an entertaining game.

When you talk baseball, you talk Yankees v Redsox regardless of standing

When you talk football, Eagles v Giants is always one to watch

Lakers Celtics has recently regained its fervor, so explain to me how the greatest standing rivalry in Hockey, and one of the best in all sports, doesn't constitute a good game to expose hockey to the masses.

Either the habs or the rangers would work, but lets face it; Gary Bettman loves to kiss the ass of the rangers and bruins ownership.

I think it will be Boston vs the dirty rangers. But of course, I could be wrong and it would be the dirty, dirty, dirty habs.

The playoffs could play a role in that say as well.

I heard on the news that they are saying either the Flyers or the Capitals. If it isn't the Habs, and IS one of those two..... it has to be the Flyers. Big Bad Bruins versus the Broad Street Bullies!! Sounds better then Bruins versus Caps! LOL

Sorry I have been among the missing lately. Still trying to catch games, but I had to bury my father yesterday. He put up a hard fight, but in the end, he joined my mother. Been a rough few weeks here.

And thank you to everyone who wished me support in an earlier post..... it helped a lot!

BosBrn77 - sorry for your loss, my prayers & thoughts are with you & your family.

The Bruins had an opportunity to pick their poision against the Habs but left that decision to the Habs. A win in regulation would have all but guaranteed a 1st round match-up with the Canadiens. Now it's pick-your-poison night for the Habs. Do they have the guts to lose in regulation tonight and face the Bruins or will they put up a fight to avoid us?

Personally I hope the Bruins play the NYR. I think it would be an easier time for our players. The NYR don't score much and I think in a series the Bruins would dominate. Although the Habs are ripe for the taking - I still fear them beating us again in the 1st round. When the Bruins & Habs meet in the playoffs, it seems that the Bruins turn into the borderline psychotic- if one thing goes wrong they lose their identity, intensity and calmness that is required. Brinf on the NYR - we need to get by that 1st round so that the B's can make BosBrn's dad proud.

The Habs valiantly tried to avoid the B's in the 1st round but came up short. Now it's my worst nightmare all over again. I still have vivid memories and am still stinging from 1971. That year the B's were the absolute class & best in the league. However they ran into Montreal in the 1st round and were eliminated in 7 on home ice no less despite outplaying & outhitting the Canadiens. I am not looking forward to the next couple of weeks. A great season could be, in all liklihood, be put to shame by the Habs.

there is nothing better then the bruins/habs in the playoffs. this is going to be epic. what are we?
6-0-1 this season? i may be wrong but its somthing like that and im too lazy to look it up. iv never seen the bruins play with such hatred and determination then when we played the habs this year during the reg. season. they know what happened in the past when it comes to playoffs and i just dont see them going down to these guys.
