Toronto Tops Detroit in Winter Classic

January 1, 2014 Updated Jan 1, 2014 at 8:41 PM EST

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- A lot of winter. Very little classic hockey. Light snow swirled down in the Big House, making it tough to push the puck through piles of the white stuff on a sheet of ice where football is usually played.

Teeth - chattering temperatures and a brisk wind were factors, too, that made the NHL's Winter Classic much more of an event than a game.

Tyler Bozak scored the winning shootout goal and Jonathan Bernier made two saves in the heart-pounding final moments, lifting Toronto to a 3 - 2 victory over Detroit on Wednesday in front of 105,491 fans, the largest crowd to watch a hockey game.
