NHL Winter Classic

The Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs renewed their Original Six rivalry outside on the snow-covered ice in front of a record crowd at Michigan Stadium in the sixth Winter Classic. The game was decided in a shootout, reminiscent of the 2008 Winter Classic that ended with a 2-1 shootout win for Pittsburgh over Buffalo. After both teams scored once, Tyler Bozak lit the lamp as Toronto's third and final shooter to allow the Maple Leafs to take a 3-2 decision over the Red Wings. Bozak skated through the middle and fired a low shot past the stick side of Jimmy Howard for the win. James van Riemsdyk and Bozak supplied Toronto's goals, while Jonathan Bernier turned aside 41-of-43 shots to allow the Leafs to jump over Detroit in the Atlantic Division standings and win their third straight.

Commencement, it is said, is a beginning. Yet graduations are also the end of an era--for students and their parents. For the kids, it's a time of excitement and promise. For parents, it's a bit more bittersweet.

What will the future hold for the Class of 2015? Time will tell.

My youngest has now graduated from high school. Back in 1980, I was the youngest of my family who graduated.
