Bost Bruins to Host 2016 Winter Classic at Gillette Stadium
It has been long rumored that the
Boston Bruins were trying to get the classic played at the home of the New England Patriots, and several media reports out of Boston say it will happen on January 1, 2016.
Joe McDonald of ESPNBoston.com has confirmed the NHL's plans. The league will not make the official announcement until the All-Star game this weekend in Columbus.
This will be the second time the Bruins host the Winter Classic after playing Philadelphia at Fenway Park in 2010.
