by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

DALLAS -- Part of the fun of having the Winter Classic in Texas is the fact there is a real aesthetic that can come out to center stage.

The NHL embraced it with its branding and logos, choosing fonts that reflected the Wild West.

The musical choices fell right in line, with music by Dan & Shay and Midland, and plenty of piped in choices that reflected both Country and Western.

Perry apologetic after early ejection from Winter Classic

The Stars winger was assessed a game misconduct in the first period for elbowing Nashville's Ellis

by Jeff Odom @jeffodom / DallasStars.com

DALLAS -- Corey Perry's Winter Classic lasted all of two minutes and 44 seconds on Wednesday.

The veteran winger was ejected from the Dallas Stars' 4-2 win at Cotton Bowl Stadium in the opening minutes of the first period after being assessed a game misconduct for elbowing Nashville Predators defenseman Ryan Ellis.

Ellis, who was attempting a shot in Nashville's attacking zone at the blueline when Perry delivered a blow to the head with his elbow up, fell to the ice and remained down for several moments. He was assisted off by teammates Viktor Arvidsson and Austin Watson before departing down the long pathway toward the tunnel with Nashville's training staff. Ellis was ruled out the rest of the game with an upper-body injury.

Stars help deliver 'perfect' Winter Classic with comeback win

Before 85,000-plus at Cotton Bowl Stadium, Dallas and its fans make a Texas-sized statement against the Predators

by Mike Heika @MikeHeika / Senior Staff Writer

DALLAS -- NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman was talking about the weather Wednesday, but he might as well have been talking about the entire 2020 NHL Winter Classic.

Asked if the weather was "just about perfect," Bettman replied emphatically: "Not just about … this was perfect. It's comfortable for the fans, the temperature is good for the ice, there's no precipitation, and there's no sun. The cloud cover couldn't be more perfect. This is an ideal weather situation for us at an outdoor game."

In fact, it was an ideal situation in pretty much every regard.

Attendance was 85,630 (the second-largest crowd to ever attend an NHL game), fans enjoyed a Texas-themed event that included country music, the State Fair Midway, and pig races -- and the Stars found a way to forge an exciting comeback win, 4-2, over the Nashville Predators.
