However, you have continued to flagrantly abuse rules designed to protect yourself and opponents from unnecessary risk.”  Related Newslast_img read more

NHL Winter Classic 2020: TV channel, time, how to watch Stars vs. Predators

first_imgWhat channel is the 2020 NHL Winter Classic?TV channel (U.S.): NBCTV channel (Canada): SportsnetLive stream (U.S.): NBCSNLive stream (Canada): Sportsnet NOWCoverage will begin at 1 p.m. ET on both NBC (U.S.) and Sportsnet (Canada). You can also live stream the contest though each program’s respective apps: NBCSN (U.S.) and Sportsnet NOW (Canada).Where is the 2020 NHL Winter Classic?Cotton Bowl Stadium has been home to the SMU Mustangs’ football program as well as the former home of two NFL teams (Dallas Cowboys and Dallas Texans) over the course of its near-decade-long existence. It also hosted the annual Cotten Bowl Classic before that game moved to AT&T Stadium in 2009.The record for the highest attendance at an outdoor NHL game was set at the 2014 Winter Classic in Ann Arbor, Mich., when more than 105,000 fans packed into “The Big House” at the University of Michigan. It is expected that this year’s game will be the second-most attended Winter Classic. Ticket sales on secondary markets are also the second-most expensive out of all New Year’s Day games this decade, according to TicketIQ as of Dec. 15. A budding rivalry is set to take center stage. The Dallas Stars and Nashville Predators will meet for the 2020 NHL Winter Classic at Cotton Bowl Stadium on Jan. 1.In a surprising move, the NHL chose Dallas, Texas for an outdoor hockey game — the southern-most city to host — for the 12th edition. Previously, the most southern game was in Washington, D.C.  A reported 84,000 tickets have been sold with over 20,000 fans making the trip down from Nashville. Cotton Bowl Stadium has a capacity of just over 92,000. Well-known for its history of hosting football games, the 89-year-old stadium is ready for its first hockey affair.Here’s what you need to know to watch the 2020 NHL Winter Classic from the historic Cotton Bowl Stadium:MORE: Watch the NHL Winter Classic live with fuboTV (7-day free trial)Who is playing in the 2020 Winter Classic?The Dallas Stars and Nashville Predators will meet on New Year’s Day. Last season, the Preds saw their Stanley Cup dreams come to a close against the Stars in a six-game opening-round series. They have already met once this season with the Stars skating away with a 4-1 victory.That win came just four days after the sudden and unexpected firing of second-year head coach Jim Montgomery on Dec. 10. Dallas has played well and will enter the game on a two-game win streak. On the flip side, the Predators have struggled to find consistency, meddling in the lower half of the league in terms of points and have lost their last two.The Winter Classic marks the first outdoor game for both teams.Winter Classic uniforms: Dallas Stars | Nashville PredatorsWhen is the 2020 NHL Winter Classic?Date: Wednesday, Jan. 1Time: 2 p.m. ETPuck drop is scheduled for 2 p.m. ET on New Year’s Day when the Dallas Stars and Nashville Predators will officially square off in the 12th edition of the Winter Classic.last_img read more
