On New Year’s Day, the New York Rangers beat the Buffalo Sabres 3-2 in overtime at the 2018 Winter Classic, putting the stadium in a “New York Groove.” Or maybe original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley had a little something to do with that?

Despite frigid temperatures at New York’s Citi Field, Frehley played “New York Groove” off his 1978 self-titled solo album.

Below, watch a clip of that performance plus an interview with the NHL Network in which he gives a brief history of the song, how he’s braving the cold for his performance, and his thoughts on the rock star/actor crossover.
