The Winter Classic between the Red Wings and Maple Leafs scheduled for New Year's Day at Michigan Stadium, is still on, at least for the time being. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said Tuesday a decision would have to be made on the event at some point next month. No new labor talks have been announced as the NHL lockout continues.
On Friday, the league said that games through November 30th have been canceled, and that an 82-game season is no longer possible. In minor league hockey, tonight in the ECHL, it’s Kalamazoo at Cincinnati.
