Questions, answers as Sabres return to Winter Classic

Questions, answers as Sabres return to Winter Classic

The announcement is not a shock to most, as Newsday had this scoop back in March, and this will become the second Winter Classic for both the Rangers and Sabres.

This will also be only the second Winter Classic for the New York Rangers.

In New York for Game 6 between the Rangers and Senators, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman announced to NBC Sports that the 2018 Winter Classic will be played at Citi Field in Flushing, N.Y., the home of the New York Mets, between the Rangers and Sabres. Buffalo hosted the first-ever NHL Winter Classic® against the Pittsburgh Penguins, a 2-1 shootout loss in front of 71,217 fans at Ralph Wilson Stadium on January 1, 2008. The game will be at 1 p.m.

Because this will serve as a home game, many questions have come up as to how it will impact season ticket holders. It would commemorate the 100 anniversary of the NHL's first-ever game.

Huey Lewis gives it up to the Citi Field crowd in 2014.

"We look forward to participating in this marquee event and helping to promote the great fame of hockey on such a large scale", Brandon said.

"The New York Rangers are honored to once again be a part of one of the NHL's signature events", said New York Rangers President Glen Sather.

The Rangers beat Philadelphia, 3-2, in the Phillies' stadium in 2012. It's the first time that the two teams will play each other outdoors and the first time that the National Hockey League has visited Citi Field since it opened in 2009. Sidney Crosby's shootout goal gave Pittsburgh a 2-1 victory over the Sabres in front of a then-record 71,217 fans.
