Two days until the NHL Winter Classic – part 4!
This year Penguins play the Capitals in Pittsburgh, so I hope the weather cooperates with the NHL on New Years Day. The Penguins played in the first Winter Classic on New Years Day 2008 against the Buffalo Sabres in Buffalo.
The outdoor NHL hockey game was actually first revisited back in 2003 in Edmonton when the Oilers played against the Montreal Canadiens.
BTW, the Heritage Classic also returns this season, on February 20, 2011 with Montreal again visiting the West, but this time in Calgary.
I’m looking forward to this game, are you?
