The Biggest Hockey Game Ever Played

Storied NHL franchises clashed in front of a world-record crowd on New Year’s Day in the 2014 NHL Winter Classic between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs from historic Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

The game, which featured the first Canadian team to compete in a Winter Classic, was played outdoors at  "The Big House," in front of 105,491 fans, making it the largest crowd ever to watch a hockey game. The Maple Leafs’ Tyler Bozak scored the decisive goal during a shootout after the teams were tied 2-2 through regulation and overtime. Snow fell for most of the game, which began with a temperature of 13 degrees.
