    Michigan Stadium hosted 105,491 fans for the Bridgestone Winter Classic

    The '14 Bridgestone Winter Classic held yesterday at Michigan Stadium between the Red Wings and Maple Leafs was "not the best hockey game in terms of action," but it was the "biggest game in NHL history by far in terms of scale, and it was the best game the league has ever staged -- indoors or out -- in terms of spectacle," according to Nicholas Cotsonika of YAHOO SPORTS. It will be "hard to match in the future, let alone top." Snowy weather "put the classic into this Winter Classic, too." Red Wings LW Justin Abdelkader said of playing in the conditions, “It was not easy. But if you talk to any of the guys in the locker room, they wouldn’t have had it any other way. That’s what made it special."
