Due to weather forecasts (rain), the Saturday 1PM ET start has been moved to 8PM ET.

NHL Press Release

Can't wait to hear what the PA Governor says about this.

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.

NBC won the night on broadcast in the adults 18-49 demographic for Saturday's NHL Winter Classic, according to preliminary numbers.

NBC averaged a 1.8 rating among adults 18-49 and 4.56 million viewers in primetime Saturday night (8-11 PM), according to preliminary fast-affiliate data. The network won the night among the Big Four broadcast networks in the demo, edging second-place FOX (1.6).

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.
