Photos of outdoor Lake Tahoe rink should excite Bruins fans originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

We're just a few days away from the Boston Bruins' most aesthetically-pleasing game of the season.

The Bruins will travel to Lake Tahoe on Sunday to take on the Philadelphia Flyers as part of the NHL Outdoors series. Bruins-Flyers will follow Colorado Avalanche vs. Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday, which means outdoor hockey is right around the corner.

The rink is being constructed a stone's throw from Lake Tahoe on the 18th green of the Edgewood Tahoe Resort golf course, and it's a sight to behold.

Five takeaways for the Bruins at the quarter point of the season

Here's a sneak peek courtesy of the Bruins and the NHL:

And here are more awesome shots of the rink from NHL.com's Nick Cotsonika:

An outdoor hockey rink with a massive lake and snow-capped mountains in the background? Yes please. (Also, those retro Golden Knights and Avs signs are awesome.)

The icing on the cake is that it's shaping up to be a beautiful day for Bruins-Flyers, with sun in the forecast and a high of 45 degrees on Sunday.

The B's have dealt with a few schedule postponements and will host the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night before flying out to Nevada, but the chance to play in such a unique setting should be a treat for the current East Division leaders (10-2-2).
