Winter Classic Blackhawks vs Bruins at Notre Dame Stadium on NBC for New Year's

The Winter Classic 2019 is on. The NHL is featured outside with the NHL annual outdoor Winter Classic game at Notre Dame Stadium in Indiana. Seating capacity is expected to be maxed out at Notre Dame Stadium with 77,622.

Date: Tuesday, Jan. 1
Time: 12 noon CT

The game is considered to be a rematch of the 2013 Stanley Cup Final, as the Chicago Blackhawks host the Boston Bruins in their first meeting of the 2018-2019 season.

This is 11th Winter Classic in NHL history. These two teams are no stranger to the event, as it will be the Blackhawks' fourth time participating and the Bruins' third time.

The Blackhawks are 0-3 in their previous three Winter Classic matchups. They lost to the Detroit Red Wings in the second Winter Classic at Wrigley Field in 2009, and they lost to the Capitals at Nationals Park in 2015 and the Blues at Busch Stadium in 2017.

The 2019 Winter Classic marks the first time that the Bruins have been the visiting team. The Bruins have hosted hosted the Winter Classic twice — once at Fenway Park in 2010 (victorious over the Flyers in OT) and once at Gillette Stadium in 2016 (routed by the Canadiens).

Both teams will be wearing special alternate uniforms for the occasion with a throwback look from the 1930s. Chicago will go black and white to pay homage to the franchise's look from 1934 when they won their first Stanley Cup. The Bruins will have a modified throwback to the club's uniforms from the 1930s.
