COLUMBUS, Ohio — Two years after the massive success at Michigan Stadium, the Montreal Canadiens will become the second Canadian NHL team to take part in a Winter Classic.
The Canadiens will visit the Boston Bruins at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., on New Year’s Day 2016, taking hockey’s oldest rivalry outside.
“It was special in 2010 just to be there with the history behind Fenway Park and all that,” Bruins centre Patrice Bergeron said. “But playing Montreal outside at Foxborough, we’ll see if it beats it, but it’s definitely going to be something great.”
