Penguins Organization Extends Grattitude Towards Fans

Now that the dust has finally settled and the hockey world can recover from their major sporting event during the season, the Pittsburgh Penguins have released an official statement from the top brass within expressing many thanks to the fans and city of which they seem so proud.
On behalf of Mario Lemieux and the entire Penguins organization, I want to thank our fans for your incredible role in making the Winter Classic one of the greatest sporting events in the city’s history.
Of course, the people in the "trenches" who provided the security, concessions, as well as the sanitation, should also get a round of applause working on what turned out to be a really cold and rainy New Years Day.

I think the Pittsburgh fans and visitors were able to adjust to the time change and took on a whole new perspective of the game under the lights. It will be a trivia point for years to come as the first game to be played outdoors under the lights.
