Bruins – Sights from the Winter Classic at Fenway Park

Monday’s NHL Winter Classic features Pittsburgh Penguins against Boston Bruins at Fenway Park, home of Boston Red Sox.

Top hometown team 2-1 thanks to two goals at the end of Jake DeBrusk.

This is the NHL’s second time playing against Green Monster, the first being in 2010. Since the Winter Classic began in 2008, the game has been played at a baseball stadium six times.

For 110-year-old Fenway Park, however, it’s been a positive period for sports other than baseball. On December 17, the stadium hosted the Wasabi Fenway Bowl between Cardinal Louisville and Cincinnati raccoon. This is the baseball stadium, which has hosted 11 World Series tournaments, looks like a football stadium and a hockey field.

Fenway Park is full of beautiful views on Mondays. Here are the best sights from the 2023 Winter Classic.

Hockey at the top of Green Monster

One big change between 2010 Classic, the third version of the NHL’s outdoor game, and today: The rink for this year’s edition runs parallel to Green Monster on the left side of the field. That means Fenway Park’s most unique seats are also arguably the best indoor seats for the NHL’s outdoor game, with stunning views of the ice in the centre.

Tickets to see the Winter Classic from the top of the Green Monster are worth $400, according to the seating plan sent to season ticket holders. Some fans we spoke to who received them early said they paid less. Green Monster tickets sold for over $2,000 on match day.

Bruins fan Tommy Driscoll paid $350 for a standing room-only ticket on Monster a few months ago. He and a friend posted on the wall around 12:30pm for the 2:33pm ball drop. To maintain their position, they took turns going to the franchise counter and the restroom.

Driscoll said the game has “definitely better visibility” than the 2010 version, where he sat behind one of the canoes.

“The ice is in a different place. You can see how far the Winter Classic has come,” he said. –Greg Wyshynski

Boston royal

Two of Boston’s greats — Bruins great Bobby Orr and former Red Sox captain Jason Varitek — performed the drop/”first pitch” ritual.

Michelangelo’s Statue of David (Pastrnak Pasta Sculpture)

At the Winter Classics fan festival near Fenway Park, it is expected that they will find shooting competitions, hockey, and loads of pre-match drinks. People don’t think there will be modern art… like a statue Boston Bruins winger David Pastrnak Made with spaghetti and tomato sauce.

The sculpture is called “David Pastrnak, In Pasta” – with “Pasta” being the nickname of the top scorer for the Bruins. The 24-inch statue was created using a special mixture of resin and pasta by artist Adam Parker Smith, who had previously converted Grecian amphoras use the same pasta process.

“Pasta in Pasta aims to capture the full personality of the Bruins star,” reads the onscreen description.

The Pastrnak statue is not only intended for artistic enrichment, but also financially supports a local charity.

The Pasta statue will be auctioned off, with proceeds going to the Keith Garman Memorial Hockey Foundation, which supports the hockey program and the players at Greater Johnstown High School. It’s a foundation named after the late Keith Garman, a former chef on the Bruins, passed away in 2022 at the age of 33. — Greg Wyshynski

While playing at a baseball stadium, the Penguins are mingling with their surroundings. Jake Guentzel, Jan Rutta, Bryan Rust, Jason Zucker and the other members of the team wearing classic costumes Pittsburgh Pirates uniforms before the game. Goalie Casey DeSmith even wearing the catcher’s clothes.

Pirates of 1925 defeated the Washington Senators to win the franchise’s second World Series title.

The Bruins arrive at the stadium in classic Red Sox uniforms.

“It’s 1937, so I guess that’s what we’re doing with the whole outfit,” continued Bruins. Charlie Coyle told ESPN.

While doing an interview with the local sports network, Coyle smashed his hand into his baseball glove.

“I think some guys broke in. I can barely [move my hand]”, he said, laughing. “It’s pretty cool. You can’t believe guys wear something like this. It’s quite different now.”

Pastrnak’s Fenway

Boston Bruins star over the weekend David Pastrnak revealed his specially designed Green Monster featuring sticks and skates for outdoor play.

Both feature a green color that mimics the iconic left wall at Fenway and stitching reminiscent of a baseball. These include the Winter Classic logo and the scoreboard pattern at Fenway.

Winger Bruins has his personal logo on the skates and bats, both created by Bauer Hockey.

One of the more unusual touches: Red Sox legend David Ortiz’s logo on the shaft and side of the skate. –Greg Wyshynski
