On the surface, this is just another regular season hockey game. But having spent a few days down at winterized Fenway now, I can tell you that the NHL is treating this like the World Series. Dare I say, a bigger deal than the Stanley Cup? Maybe that’s my local bias coming through. But we’re going on three weeks of media availabilities, hockey games, open skates, etc. and the visual of hockey being played in Fenway Park is just too much to resist. The players are excited, I’m excited, the NHL is very excited, so this should be quite a show!
You can check out the slideshow, which I will be updating throughout the day, here.
And we’ll be doing something of a live tweet (to be honest, it depends on how well my iPhone handles the conditions – touchscreens don’t like driving snowstorms, as I learned yesterday!) on Twitter – just follow @SportsCenter5 or click here.
