What’s winter without a little pond hockey?
With the Winter Classic on pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NHL sought to capture the energy of its annual outdoors extravaganza for fans in a different way this season.
Enter Lake Tahoe.
Four teams — the Colorado Avalanche, the Vegas Golden Knights, the Philadelphia Flyers, and the Bruins — took the ice over the weekend, and the views were spectacular.
The Avalanche beat the Golden Knights, 3-2, after a seven-hour delay on Saturday afternoon due to ice conditions.
And on Sunday night, the Bruins put a beatdown on the Flyers, 7-3, thanks to three goals from David Pastrnak.
