What started out as a concept a year ago will turn into reality in December when the Boston College men’s hockey team plays a regular-season game under the lights, as well as the stars, at Fenway Park.
‘We’re going to do it,” said a BC official yesterday. ”It’s just a matter of finding an opponent and a date that will work. But we’re going to play a game in Fenway.”
The details will be worked out over the next several weeks, and they could include the Boston University team as part of a doubleheader. The original idea called for such a doubleheader, with BU and BC against teams from the Midwest, possibly Michigan and Michigan State.
When you schedule a hockey game to be played outdoors, you never know what to expect.
That’s part of the allure for hockey fans planning to attend the Frozen Tundra Hockey Classic at Lambeau Field on Saturday, a game that features the University of Wisconsin and Ohio State.
