Boston Bruins winger David Pastrnak's power-play goal at 12:38 of the first period, his 24th of the year, tied the Winter Classic against the Chicago Blackhawks at 1-1. His goal celebration evoked the "bird walk" of Washington Capitals star Evgeny Kuznetsov. Was he mimicking a hawk, considering their opponents?

The Chicago Blackhawks strike first in the 2019 Winter Classic, as left wing Brendan Perlini scored from the slot at 8:30 of the first period. Playing in his first outdoor game, Perlini then celebrated by plugging the ear holes in his helmet with his gloves as Notre Dame Stadium's thousands of Hawks fans roared.

NHL Winter Classic fans were greeted by a long line to enter a cramped official gear store outside of Notre Dame Stadium. By 90 minutes before puck drop, the wait time was around 35 minutes. As for prices, jerseys sold for $179.99 and hats for $31.99. They were also available inside the stadium at booths, but many items and collectibles were only available in the official store. Hopefully, worth the wait.

Perfect conditions for the 2019 Winter Classic at Notre Dame. It's around 30 degrees, overcast (so no boring postgame stories about sun glare off the ice) and with no precipitation in the forecast. The fun begins at 1 p.m. ET, and Fighting Irish football great Tim Brown is scheduled to drop the ceremonial first puck.
