NHL Winter Classic 2014: Red Wings vs. Maple Leafs on NBC: The 2014 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic outdoor game is Jan. 1 from Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor.
The New Year’s Day NHL Winter Classic outdoor game returns after a labor dispute forced its cancellation last year. The Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs will ring in 2014 in college football’s “Big House,” Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, for the NHL’s premier outdoor hockey spectacle. NBC airs the game live Jan. 1 at 1pm ET.
The Winter Classic is the first of four outdoor NHL games in January. Others are the Anaheim Ducks vs. the Los Angeles Kings at Dodger Stadium (NBCSN, Jan. 25), and the New Jersey Devils vs. the New York Rangers (NBC, Jan. 26) and the New York Islanders vs. the Rangers (NBCSN, Jan. 29) at Yankee Stadium.
