Winter Classic is a Family Affair

Travis Hughes from Broad Street Hockey is doing a tremendous job covering the Winter Classic at ground level, getting a feel for the excitement and the special atmosphere that surrounds the game. The fans in attendance at yesterday's activities are likening the game to the NHL's version of the Super Bowl, and the players themselves are enjoying the event with family and friends.

"Today was really special," said Mike Richards. "You think about it a little bit, and coming in, you don't really realize how special it is until you actually get out there and see Fenway Park and the Green Monster while you're playing hockey. It's pretty neat."

"By the time we got off the ice at four o'clock," said Peter Laviolette, a Massachusetts native, "it was an absolutely perfect day and a perfect ten for pond hockey and being outside, there was no snow coming down anymore. It wasn't too cold and it was just a great day. It ended perfect."

Travis has more from the Bruins and Flyers players, and how a lot of fans have brought in family for the game as well.
