    Anyone watch it in 3D on the 3D channel? I haven't finished watching the game (recorded) but I do have to say it was not near as well developed or done as the hockey night in Canada did there 3D hockey game. I don't know what it was but the effect wasn't really 3D or atleast compared to the HNIC production.

    Amazing ratings for the NHL.

    I wondered how good the ratings would be considering a strong Pens TV market was hosting the game- how many viewers would at the game ( with the game at the stadium with 60,000 plus instead of the usual arena's 16,000 ) instead of home watching ?

    Also with the game up against 3 of the 4 teams in the NY and Buf tv markets ,would those hockey fans watch the Classic or their own teams ?

    NBC originally proposed the Winter Classic to the NHL because they didn't have a college bowl game at 1PM.

    I wonder if these ratings are good enough that they might change the Winter Classic permanently to a night game, which will then allow the game to be hosted further west.
