If you want to catch a few hockey games this winter but don't have the cash for the post-Stanley Cup prices, take note of the Winterfest 3-on-3 Hockey Classic
. Teams of six adults (21 and older only) will play a modified version of the best sport in a five-game series. There are two twelve-minute halves to a game, and only three players are allowed on the ice at any time; crucially, there are no goalies. The opening games take place from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, December 14, at Kiener Plaza (500 Chestnut Street; www.nhl.com/blues/community/winterfest-hockey
), and admission is free for spectators. Teams pay a $750 registration fee, and every team will receive six custom jerseys to dress skaters.
