I think the home team has never won
Just returning from Michigan.
I must say, after attending 4th ‘ Winter Classic ‘ games, NONE have been as good as the First one at RIch Stadium.
The Game today ( yesterday for some ) was boring. It wasnt due to the weather which had an effect on ice speed. The game at Rich Stadium saw several stoppages in play for ice repair. It was more of the 2 teams playing.
Unlike having Miller, Crosby, Malkin and the thought of Peters-vs-Laraque throwing down, it was a game of ‘ dump the puck , the other team recovers it ‘ then go the other way. I would call it a game of ‘ euro hockey ‘ more then anything else. No scrums, hardly any passion..
The plates on the cars in the Parking lots were from all over. Same as it was with the Original and the others I have attended.
‘ Original 6 ‘ or not, I would have to put this past game in comparison as the lowest in ranking compared to the others for ‘ entertainment ‘ value.
I probably took at least 100 pictures at the PIT/BUF game. This one? All of 50 maybe? There just wasnt ‘ anything there ‘.
