Going Back Outdoors
The game may be a couple months away but the preparation and excitement have begun.
The Bruins and Blackhawks officially announced the jerseys they would be wearing for the annual outdoor game on New Years Day.
Bruins chose the brown and gold version
The brown-and-gold jersey pays homage to the team’s 1930’s era uniform. The classic “B’’ logo is the logo that was chosen.
Additional details include a list of the years that the team has won the Stanley Cup, each year has been set within a shamrock as a nod to Notre Dame Stadium and is emblazoned onto the interior neckline.
Blackhawks going with black and white
The jersey pays homage to 1934, the year the team won its first Stanley Cup and it also includes the six years that the team has won the Stanley Cup emblazoned onto the interior neckline, paired with the classic hash marks of Notre Dame Stadium.
Notre Dame Stadium is the venue.
The stadium holds up to 80,000 and the game will be played on January 1, 2019. This will be the third time the Bruins play in the Winter Classic, the first as the road team. Fenway Park and Gillette Stadium were the two previous games.
