Word is that the NHL will officially unveil the 2011 Winter Classic via a press conference at Heinz Field on Tuesday. (Source: Inside Pittsburgh Sports.)
New Year’s 2011 won’t be around very soon, although it’s kind of difficult to believe it’s almost August already. (I guess I’m getting old?)
The outdoor game will take place in the home of the Pittsburgh Steelers, featuring the Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins. Along with the obvious choices of Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby, the teams feature other great stars and near-stars such as Evgeni Malkin, Nicklas Backstrom, Mike Green and Marc-Andre Fleury. It should be a great time and you should expect some excellent coverage from Pro Hockey Talk.
