The Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs played hockey in Ann Arbor, Michigan for the 2014 NHL Winter Classic on New Year's Day. This special game is played outdoors in the Big House. For the first time ever, the NHL drew over 100,000 fans into the stadium to watch this game as snow came falling down onto the ice surface during the Winter Classic.
I noticed on Facebook that some people talking about this game don't even follow hockey. I wonder, what would it take for Missouri to get a game like this to draw attention to hockey in Missouri?
