Though New Year's Day is Bowl Obsession Day for me, I found this game really compelling. It's the best thing the NHL has put out in several years (probably since the Rangers won the cup) and featuring it on this day on NBC was the best decision they've made in a decade. They should do this half a dozen times a year or more and televise all of them. 73,000 fans in snow and sleet? It was great. The players were pumped like it was a playoff game. Reminded me of my days growing up in Buffalo - playing hockey and all other sports in the snow and cold and ice. Just fantastic stuff! And, I've sat through a few blizzards in that stadium as well! Anyone else watch this with interest?
