A ticket to the NHL Winter Classic has become one of most sought-after in sports. In 2008, the Winter Classic between the Buffalo Sabres
and Pittsburgh Penguins
sold out 74,000 seat Ralph Wilson Stadium in just 20 minutes. Last season's 2009 Bridgestone/NHL Winter Classic received more than 240,000 ticket requests for the Wrigley Field showdown between the Chicago Blackhawks
and Detroit Red Wings
. That game also attracted 5.6 million North American TV viewers -- including the largest U.S. audience for a regular-season NHL game in 34 years -- and garnered more than 750,000 visitors on NHL.com.
The 2010 Bridgestone/NHL Winter Classic will be the third regular-season outdoor NHL game played in the United States (the Sabres hosted the Penguins on New Year's Day 2008, and the Blackhawks hosted the Red Wings at Wrigley Field on Jan. 1, 2009), and the fourth regular-season outdoor game in League history (the Edmonton Oilers
hosted the Montreal Canadiens
at Commonwealth Stadium on Nov. 22, 2003). NBC will provide live broadcast coverage of the game in the U.S. In Canada, CBC and RDS will televise the event live. NHL Radio and Sirius XM Radio will provide radio coverage and NHL.com will provide extensive digital video coverage.
