It will take a football stadium the size of Heinz Field to hold all the talent on display at the 2011 NHL Winter Classic.
Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, and the Pittsburgh Penguins will take on Alex Ovechkin, Alexander Semin, and the Washington Capitals in the 4th annual Winter Classic in Pittsburgh – the New Year’s Day flagship event for National Hockey League.
The 2011 Winter Classic appearance will be the second for the Pens, who beat the Buffalo Sabres 2-1 in a shootout back in the 2008 inaugural event. That Winter Classic game was the highest attended live event in the history of the NHL, posting a sell-out crowd of 71,217. The Winter Classic 2011 game will be the first such appearance for the Caps, and arguably the most publicized game in the history of the franchise.
The Penguins Capitals Winter Classic will continue the rivalry of the two biggest stars in the NHL, Crosby and Ovechkin, as well as serve as a possible preview of a late playoff matchup. It will also serve as a cable television show, as HBO will be broadcasting 24/7 Penguins Capitals: Road To The NHL Winter Classic. Additionally, the players will be decked out in special 2011 Penguins Winter Classic jerseys and 2011 Capitals Winter Classic jerseys.
