'Record breaking' crowd rings in the new year for the NHL

The American National Hockey League rang in the New Year in record-breaking style on Wednesday.

A crowd of over 105,000 spectators attended the Toronto Maple Leafs – Detroit Red Wings game.

It turned into a shootout thriller in brutally low temperatures, with the Leafs beating the Red Wings 3-2 in the outdoor Winter Classic.

But the Arctic conditions didn’t put the fans off. If the numbers are confirmed, the crowd would be the biggest ever for a hockey game, winning a Guinness World Record.
