Don’t have Winter Classic tickets yet? Well, you’ll have to hit up the secondary market, because the Jan. 2 game between the Blues and Blackhawks at Busch Stadium in St. Louis is sold out.
From the Post-Dispatch:
The NHL put an undisclosed number of tickets to the outdoor game on sale at 10 a.m. viaTicketmaster.com, and minutes later hopeful fans at their computers were turned away.
Busch Stadium will hold an estimated 50,000 fans for the Blues-Blackhawks’ game and the alumni game on Dec. 31, but the Blues did not have control of all those seats. They were split between the NHL, Blues, Blackhawks and Cardinals.
Four outdoor games will be played this season, the first one going this Sunday in Winnipeg between the Jets and Oilers. The next one is scheduled for Jan. 1, when the Maple Leafs will host the Red Wings at BMO Field in Toronto. The Winter Classic is the following day, and the fourth and final outdoor game is set for Feb. 25 at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh between the Penguins and Flyers.
