2011 Heritage Classic
Up in Calgary, the Flames and Habs had a little version of the Winter Classic themselves. In the first Heritage Classic since 2003, the two teams played at McMahon Stadium.
The arena was set up football style, which is no surprise. The game sold out, which is also no surprise. The CFL capacity is 35,650, with possible expansions. The hockey game had 41,022 people in attendance. Also, the Flames looked sweet. They had fireworks, concerts, and air hockey outside.
Seems like a party. No way one is held down here, but what ever, if I wanted to go I'd go on a vacation!
The flames won 4-0 in the first NHL outdoor game to end with a shut out.
