Gillette Stadium to Host 2016 NHL Winter Classic
The NHL Winter Classic will return to Massachusetts for a second time in 2016 when the home of the New England Patriots, Gillette Stadium, plays host to the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens on New Year’s Day. The Bruins previously participated in the Winter Classic in 2010 against the Philadelphia Flyers at Fenway Park, while the 2016 contest will be a first for the Canadiens. The annual Jan. 1 event has alternated between football and baseball venues for the game, though since its inception in 2008, the league also has instituted yearly Stadium Series contests also at major outdoor venues around the country.
In seven previous Winter Classics, the visiting team has won five times, though the Bruins hold the distinction of being one of only two hosts to have prevailed, and also are the only team thus far to win in overtime. The 2016 Winter Classic will be the third matchup pitting Original Six foes against one another, following Chicago-Detroit in 2009 and Toronto-Detroit in 2014.
