Maple Leafs 3, Red Wings 2 (Shootout)
The game was watched by 105,491 fans to break a hockey attendance record and was played in a steady snowfall with a temperature of a little more than 10 degrees.
Both goalies had to regularly have their water bottles replaced because the water was freezing.
James Van Riemsdyk and Bozak also scored for Toronto (21-16-5) in regulation. Maple Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier stopped 41 shots.
Defenseman Brendan Smith had two assists and goaltender Jimmy Howard made 24 saves.
The NHL had previously contested five Winter Classic games, which are played outdoors, but none came close to matching the size of Wednesday's showcase.
