The Washington Capitals and the Pittsburgh Penguins are the two likely teams to play in the NHL’s Winter Classic on January 1, according to the New York Times. The game will be played in Heinz Field, home of the Pittsburgh Steelers football team, instead of in a baseball stadium like the last two Winter Classics. The Penguins played in the game on January 1, 2008, against the Buffalo Sabres. More than a dozen teams reportedly bid to host the game next year, according to the Times, and a second outdoor game is slated to be hosted in Calgary on February 20 between the Flames and the Montreal Canadiens.
