Police may be looking for the suspects in a post-Winter Classic assault, but the event itself is being billed as a success, particularly by NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman.
Asked about Philadelphia’s hosting capabilities during a post-game press conference, Bettman gave the city a glowing review.
“. . . just the entire reception in the city, the buzz throughout the city, and the crowd today was great,” he said.
“This was just a terrific event for us, and we are grateful to everybody who was involved, particularly and including the City of Philadelphia.”
Bettman went on to call Citizens Bank Park a “spectacular venue.”
Too bad the TV ratings were the event’s lowest ever.
