What a way to kick off 2023 in the city of Boston!

So much pomp and circumstance leading up to this special event at Fenway Park, and frankly, I loved every minute. From the pre-game music, photos, personalites, tweets and videos, to the outcome (obviously). No, I wasn’t there. but I listened to the broadcast for the first period on radio while I cooked French onion soup (a winter classic), and watched the remainder of the game like most people, on tv.

Fenway Park looked magical and both teams seemed to really enjoy the lead up to the game. It was a rough start for the Bruins, but all season they’ve been great in the third. And this team did not disappoint in the third period at this game. Scrolling through social media you really got a feel for what a remarkable event this really was. With that said, here are 12 cool moments caught on social media from the NHL Winter Classic at Fenway Park. It was a skate in the park…
