"Games like this, when you're coming into the League or growing up, you never think things like this would happen, so it's very cool to be a part of something like this. … To play in front of 70,000 people will be an incredible, incredible experience." -- Bruins forward Brad Marchand
"Just going out in the [stadium] and looking around, it's pretty cool to think it's going to be packed with fans. Whether you're one of the new guys or you've played in five or six outdoor games, it's going to be fun for everyone." -- Blackhawks center Jonathan Toews

Toews, Kane, Keith and Seabrook have played in all five of Chicago's outdoor games. … Bergeron and Chara played in both of Boston's previous outdoor games. Rask played in the 2016 Winter Classic and was the backup in the 2009 game at Fenway Park.
