Lucky fan: 'It's going to be a great day'
BOSTON -- From their seats in the right-field box, Robert Trestan and his 7-year-old son, Levi, had a great view of the ice -- and of Pesky's Pole.

The Trestans won their tickets to Friday's Winter Classic though a lottery and weren't complaining about a slightly obstructed view.
The famous yellow beacon blended nicely with the yellow Bruins shirts throughout the crowd, but it did provide a bit of an obstruction for those that were already battling the winds whipping through the seats high above right field.
But the Trestans didn't seemed bothered in the least.
"The angles are going to be difficult for everyone," said Robert Trestan, a Boston resident who won his tickets through a lottery system. "But, hey, it's a baseball park.
"The atmosphere is great and people are excited. It's going to be a great day."
Nearby, a bunch of Flyers fans were sitting on the bar stools under the Cumberland Farms sign. Despite the chill, one fan summed it up best when asked about the sightlines and conditions: "We're just happy to be here."
