Heritage Classic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Heritage Classic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "The Heritage Classic was an outdoor ice hockey game played on November 22, 2003 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada between the Edmonton Oilers and the Montreal Canadiens. It was the second NHL outdoor game and the first regular season outdoor game in the history of the National Hockey League, and was modeled after the success of the 'cold war' game between the University of Michigan and Michigan State University in 2001[1]. The first NHL game to be played outdoors was in 1991 when the Los Angeles Kings played the New York Rangers in an exhibition game outside Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. [2] The event took place in Edmonton's Commonwealth Stadium in front of a crowd of 57,167, despite temperatures of close to -18 �C, -30 �C (-22 �F) with wind chill. It was held to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Edmonton Oilers joining the NHL in 1979. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television broadcast also set the record for most viewers of a single NHL game with 2.747 million nationwide. This was the first NHL game broadcast in HDTV on CBC."

Cold War (ice hockey) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cold War (ice hockey) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "The Cold War was an ice hockey game played between U.S. college rivals Michigan State University and the University of Michigan on Saturday October 6, 2001. It set the world record for the largest crowd at an ice hockey game.[1] The attendance was so high because instead of hosting the game in East Lansing's Munn Ice Arena, Michigan State decided to set up an ice rink in the middle of the much larger Spartan Stadium, which they filled to 103.4% of capacity. This meant that 74,544[2] packed the Big Ten football stadium to watch the MSU Spartans and the U-M Wolverines skate to a 3-3 tie."
