Leafs Prevail in Snowy Winter Classic, by Jeff Klein

Ann Arbor, Michigan…”Amid falling snow and bitter cold on New Year’s Day, more than 100,000 fans packed the Big House (Michigan Stadium) to watch the (Toronto) Maple Leafs and the Detroit Red Wings play in the N.H.L.’s sixth Winter Classic.

In the end, the Maple Leafs beat the Red Wings, 3-2, on Tyler Bozak’s shootout goal, but hockey, played this day in its wintry original form, came out the biggest winner…

Mike Babcock, the Red Wing’s coach said: ‘Today was spectacular.  It was a home run.”

Baseball season is over, but hockey had a home run.  A home run in baseball is usually when the batter hits the ball out of the park, one of the most exciting things in sports.
