NHL Winter Classic
New Year's Day 2008
Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Buffalo Sabres - Buffalo, NY - 71,217 in attendance for the First Ever Outdoor NHL Game in the USA - Blackhawk Helicopters courtesy the NY Army National Guard - Temperature 33-degrees and heavy snow.

Commemorating one of the most beloved days in the history of Buffalo sports! When the Sabres franchise scheduled the Winter Classic for January 1, 2008 at the home of the Buffalo Bills, Ralph Wilson Stadium, no one knew what to expect. But when Sidney Crosby finished his celebration after scoring the winning goal in a shootout, all 71,000 fans went home happy with memories of a lifetime, despite the fact that the home team lost. With this spectacular panoramic print from photographer Joseph M. Cascio, you can re-live this event-of-a-lifetime, for all-time! Taken during the singing of the national anthems prior to the game, this print shows the breathtaking scene unfolding before your eyes: the regulation-sized NHL ice rink constructed in the middle of the football playing surface; the giant flags unfurled at either end; the players on the ice in their retro jerseys; the magnificent scene of a jam-packed stadium, and the blackhawk helicopters cutting through the sky clouded by falling snow that made the playing conditions difficult, but the atmosphere absolutely perfect. Complete with sharp deep-purple-bordered design that includes the team logos of the era, the Winter Classic emblem, and the text as shown above, this is both a beautiful piece for the wall of home or office, and a valuable collector's item for years to come. Whether you were at the stadium on that day, are a die-hard Sabres enthusiast, a fan of hockey history, or simply a hockey collector and fanatic, this is the ultimate addition to your wall! Perfect for a nice frame and a prominent place at home or office.
