    Default (W) GDT - The 2017 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic, Blackhawks @ Blues, Noon

    We begin with this from the NHL: if the game is tied after two periods and the conditions are unplayable, both teams will be awarded a point and a shootout will be played at the United Center before a game there in February to determine who gets the second.

    If less than two periods can be played, the game is cancelled, and will be replayed at Scottrade at a later date.

    Have fun!

    Seems like it is going to open up later today, so a little surprised they are not pushing back.

    This is 100% a network decision. Or, 95%. 5% get people in the building spending money early.

    I'm fairly certain that's the standard for outdoor games...

    The risk of them playing that shit at Scottrade in March isn't worth paying $250 plus for tickets

    I was planning on going to work for a little bit anyway, so I'm gonna walk down to the stadium, and see what I can scalp a ticket for. I'm only gonna go to $50, so I probably won't be getting a ticket.

    We are headed down around 9:30. Hopefully we won't run into Drat, such a snoozefest.

    Also, I just saw a tweet that said it will be played Tuesday at Busch if they can't get two periods in

    I'd be a little bummed if I forked over $300+ for a ticket, but I'm sure it will be a fun day regardless.

    Getting ready to head down now. Prob just ride the Metrolink, no interest in paying $60 to park for a fucking hockey game.
