There will be outdoor ice for the Stanley Cup finals.
It will be the first outdoor game played outdoors since 1976 when it was played in Calgary.
This year’s game will be held on the East Coast in Boston.
There will also be a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Fenway Park, with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman officiating.
It’s a major milestone for the game.
The Stanley Cup final will be moved from its usual venue at the Garden to the outdoor rink at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., in 2021.
The league announced the announcement Tuesday.
The game will start with a 7 p.m. start, and the championship will take place at 2:30 a.m., with the first goal scored at 2 a.d.
The first round will be a best-of-seven series.
Bettman said he is excited for the outdoor game, but is unsure how the indoor venue will fare.
He noted that the indoor arena, which was designed in the 1980s and hasn’t hosted a Stanley Cup playoff game since 1986, was recently renovated and opened in 2000.
“I think that’s the first of many changes we’re going to make to the arena,” Bettman told the Associated Press.
“It’s not perfect, but we want it to be.”
