Canadiens center Brian Flynn looking forward to Winter Classic against Bruins

Foxborough, MA, United States (4E Sports) - Montreal Canadiens center Brian Flynn is excited for the NHL Winter Classic game against the Boston Bruins which will be held on New Year's Day at the Gillette Stadium.
"It's exciting for me. I try to come here to see a preseason game every year and it's such a great stadium," Flynn said.
The 27-year-old grew up near the stadium in Lynnfield , Massachusetts and shared how his passion for the sport began.
"My uncle and cousins live on a pond right down the street from me, so I'd fly down there after school or late at night on the weekends, get out there and shovel the snow off," Flynn said.
"That's when hockey is a blast, playing out there all day long with your buddies and you don't even want to go in and get dinner or anything. You just want to keep going," he added.
Flynn joined the Canadiens via trade from the Buffalo Sabres before the deadline and played nine regular season games for the team and had six playoff appearances.
Last month he inked a deal to stay with the Canadiens for another season and said he does not feel weird about playing for the Bruins' greatest rivals.
Flynn added that it is a great opportunity because of the tradition in Montreal.
