The Colorado Avalanche will play the Vegas Golden Knights on February 20.

The Boston Bruins announced on Monday that their upcoming outdoor game against the Philadelphia Flyers will take place at Lake Tahoe on Sunday Feb. 21.

Both games will be broadcast at 1 p.m. MST on NBC in the United States. Set along the scenic Lake Tahoe shoreline, Edgewood Tahoe Resort is a 235-acre, LEED-certified luxe mountain haven overlooking the iconic Sierra Nevada.

In keeping with the NHL's tradition of outdoor games, these two matchups will be the 31st and 32nd outdoor National Hockey League games held since the first in 2003.

The Flyers will wear their Reverse Retro adidas jersey, which should look pretty sharp on the ice at the lakefront 18th fairway of the resort's golf course. "Each time we have played outdoors it has been a great experience for our players and fans, and we expect Lake Tahoe to be the same".

"Ever since we began staging outdoor games in 2003 and made it a regular feature of our annual schedule in 2008, we have considered myriad non-stadium settings, but they always were rendered impractical because of the sheer volume of demand from our fans to attend". The Bruins other outdoor game appearances include the 2016 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® (5-1 loss to Montreal at Gillette Stadium) and the 2019 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® (4-2 win against Chicago at Notre Dame Stadium). He has gone 3-2-1 in those games with the Flyers and Maple Leafs.

The NHL Outdoors at Lake Tahoe event was first reported on New Year's Day.
