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 outdoor games will broadcast on NBC.

Fans will flock to the lake, one of Nevada and California’s biggest tourist attractions, for two regular season games as part of the league’s NHL Outdoors series. The other game will be between the Vegas Golden Knights and Colorado Avalanche.

All four teams will wear their “Reverse Retro” jerseys, which the Bruins revealed in November.

The outdoor rink at the lake will certainly provide fans with a once-in-a-lifetime view. According to a release from the Bruins, it will be located on the “lakefront 18th fairway” at the golf course for the Edgewood Tahoe Resort, which has hosted the American Century Championship since 1991.

Here’s what the view may look like, thanks to the Barstool Sports podcast Spittin’ Chiclets:

Not bad.

February’s game will be a rematch of the 2010 Winter Classic between the Bruins and Flyers at Fenway Park. The Bruins mounted a late-third-period comeback in the game and won 2-1 in overtime.
