Winter Classic Notes
The NHL Winter Classic returns to New Year's Day with the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs squaring off from Michigan Stadium, which is a football stadium located in Ann Arbor.

The two teams are expected to play in front of 107,000-plus people, which will surpass a hockey attendance record of 104,173 in 2010, which occured in a college game. The 2014 Classic will feature its first Canadian team.

The Red Wings and Maple Leafs are meeting for the second time this season as Detroit edged Toronto in the shootout on December 21 as short underdogs, 5-4. The Leafs have won two consecutive games, but Toronto has only two victories in regulation since November 20, while going 7-8-4 the last 19 contests. The Wings should be thrilled not to be playing at Joe Louis Arena, where they have lost 16 of 22 home games this season. Detroit has dropped eight of past 11 games, while only two of those wins came in regulation.

The road team has had success in the NHL Winter Classic, winning four of the first five encounters.
