Squeaked?

This game had the most viewers in 36 years.

Can't say they didn't get what they wanted out of that game.

I've read conflicting reports on that - some say it was, some say it didn't get as much as the Classic 2 years ago.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

What is this Winter Classic jinx? The team that wins loses in the Cup finals? Didn't Boston win last year though?

Other way around...
'08- Pit beats Buf, and loses to us
'09- we beat Hawks and lose to Pit
'10- Phi beat Bos and lose to Hawks
'11- Ovi beats Sid and we shall see

but philly lost to boston last year. either way though, it seems that one of the two teams involved in the classic makes it to the finals... and loses.

That would be the visiting team.

Pittsburgh was away.
Detroit was away.
Philadelphia was away.
Washington was away.

It remains to be seen how far those caps go.

Ah, I stand corrected. Thanks. I had heard someone say that and just believed it without researching it. Lesson to me. I think Doc has it right.
