When are you going to a baseball game?

When are there not many games going on?

You’ll probably never know, because that depends on how busy the rest of us are.

But the NHL is going to be watching and watching, even if it’s not on TV, because the league’s decision to make Sunday the official start of its Winter Classic season is only one step in the evolution of hockey in North America. 

When do you play a game?: Friday night, Monday night, Thursday night, Saturday night, Sunday afternoon, or Tuesday night? 

What if you’re the best in the world, and you want to play a playoff game? 

Where do you practice?

The NHL’s Winter Classic is being played in the new, modern arenas. 

What are the rules?: Two minutes of ice time for every player on the ice. 

How to watch?: On television, you can stream the entire event live, on the NHL Network and NHL.com. 

In the stands, you’ll have access to live coverage of the game, including highlights and commentary, plus the ability to get a virtual souvenir ticket to get on the court for the first time in your life. 

You’ll also have the ability not to get tickets to the event unless you purchase a special NHL Season Ticket package. 

Where are the lines?: The lines will be at the arena entrance. 

Who will be on the lines? 

The lineups will be announced in the coming days. 

Can I take my kid? 


Is there a limit to the number of kids allowed on the field? 

It is a matter of discretion. 

Does the game have to be played in a certain time zone? 


Do I have to leave my car in the parking lot? 

There is a designated parking lot in the arena, and fans can park on the sidewalk. 

Will there be a food or drink tent? 

Food and drink tents are available in the press box. 

Are there food trucks? 

Tickets to the Winter Classic are on sale at the box office and in the stands. 

Tickets are available online at www.nhl.com/winter. 

I’m interested in attending.

What do I need to do? 

Be sure to RSVP on social media or at the press-box, or by calling 703-420-4100. 

Be prepared to wait. 

It’s a marathon, not a sprint. 

This is your chance to show the world what you are all about. 

Here’s how to get there: On Thursday night: Get your tickets for the Winter Classics online at NHL.com or the NHL Ticket Exchange, and bring them to the press office for your registration. 

After the press conference on Thursday, Saturday, or Sunday, the line for the press boxes will be set at 6:00 p.m.

ET on Saturday, with the rest available on Saturday and Sunday. 

On Sunday: You can purchase a ticket online at the NHL website or by phone at 800-745-3000. 

If you can’t make it to the arena on Saturday or Sunday at 6 p.t., you can purchase an adult ticket from a ticket vendor (check the schedule on the website for the date of your game), or from a concession stand. 

The press box opens at 7:00 a.m., and the rest is open from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. 

As you walk to the media area, you may hear fans yelling, “Get in line, or the fans are going to get in line!” 

If so, get in there and wait.

The line for Sunday is expected to be as long as it is for Saturday, but it may be shorter. 

For the best seats in the house, go to the top row of the press area and be ready to receive an autograph. 

There are no lines to enter the press room, and there is plenty of room. 

We’ve got some special guests in town.

On Thursday, the Winter Club is hosting the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena. 


3, 2018At this time, no fans are allowed into the pressroom, but there is a seating plan for fans with special needs.

Fans must sit in the front row and face away from the press.

The seating plan is at the right of the arena’s north-side entrance.

Fans may not bring any pets into the arena. 

Please check with your local Predators or Bridgestones Arena staff about the best way to proceed. 

Thank you for being a part of the Winter Meet & Greet.

Please come back Friday night and enjoy the game.
