NHL Winter Classic live stream 2018: How to watch Rangers vs. Sabres from Citi Field online

New Year’s Day may be about college football for a lot of sports fans, but the NHL will start the celebration with the 2018 Winter Classic between the New York Rangers and Buffalo Sabres at Citi Field.

Coverage of the annual outdoor game starts at 1 p.m. ET and will be broadcast live on NBC. It will also be streamed on NBC Sports Live if you have a subscription.

Puck drop is expected to be around 1:25 p.m. due to sun glare issues at the stadium. It turns out hosting hockey outdoors during the afternoon can come with some complications.

The Sabres will be the home team for the game in Queens because the Rangers reportedly would’ve been at risk for a massive property tax bill by playing a home game away from Madison Square Garden. So while the crowd will surely be loaded with fans from both sides, this is technically one of Buffalo’s 41 home games this season.

The 10th Winter Classic may not quite have the same hype as the first one, involving the Sabres and Penguins a decade ago, but it’s still an exciting and fun way to ring in the new year. We just had an awesome outdoor game between Team USA and Canada at the World Juniors in Buffalo, and this one will hopefully be no different.

The Sabres enter their first Winter Classic since the first one ever led by young star Jack Eichel. He’s put up 35 points in 38 games this season, including seven points in his last four games. Buffalo is still dead last in the Eastern Conference with a 10-20-8 record despite Eichel’s strong performance, but it’ll be fun to see one of the NHL’s most talented young players on the biggest regular-season stage.

For the Rangers, this game represents an opportunity to shake off some midseason lulls. The team has lost three of its past four games, including a shootout loss to the Red Wings on Friday, and only four of its 12 games this month are at home (five if you include the Winter Classic not being an actual road game).

This is the Rangers’ second Winter Classic after facing the Philadelphia Flyers at Citizens Bank Park five years ago. The team also played a pair of Stadium Series games against the New Jersey Devils and New York Islanders at Yankee Stadium in 2014.
