You might have noticed the Washington Capitals–New York Rangers game looked a little different. Was that Cricket Green playing for the Rangers?
Tuesday’s game was a first-of-its-kind production: A live hockey game rendered into an animated series in real-time and virtually recreated the action on the ice at Madison Square Garden. It featured characters from the Disney animated series “Big City Greens,” which debuted in 2018.
Here are some of the top moments from the “Big City” broadcast:
