NHL announces Bruins outdoor game at Lake Tahoe, releases rendering of what rink will look like


It's now official: the Bruins are going back outdoors.

The NHL officially announced on Monday that the Bruins will take on the Flyers in one of the league's two NHL Outdoors at Lake Tahoe games in February.

The Bruins will face the Flyers on Sunday, Feb. 21, at 3 p.m. ET on NBC. The Avalanche and Golden Knights will play the day before, also at 3 p.m. ET.

The rink for the games will be located on the lakefront 18th fairway of the golf course at the Edgewood Tahoe Resort in Stateline, Nevada, the annual site of the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament.

The Bruins have played in three outdoor games over the last decade -- the 2010 Winter Classic at Fenway Park, the 2016 Winter Classic at Gillette Stadium, and the 2019 Winter Classic at Notre Dame Stadium.

Along with the announcement of the game, the league released a rendering of what the rink will look like, and needless to say it looks pretty awesome:
