Caps-Penguins in 2011 Winter Classic

Picture from Winter Classic in 2008 between the Sabres and Penguins

Ovechkin and Crosby. Capitals and Penguins. Two of the biggest player/team rivalries in the sport of hockey will collide on New Years Day at Heinz Field. This will be the fourth installment of the Winter Classic, where teams play an outdoor hockey game, ad element that has been recently implemented to get some buzz growing about the sport.

I really think this is a great thing for the sport of hockey. Recently the sport has gained a lot more notoriety with its superstar players like Ovechkin and Crosby, underdog stories like the (gulp) Canadiens and Flyers (down 3-0 in playoffs, came back to win series), and with this Winter Classic. It seems like hockey is on the rise and headed in the right direction, which is a good thing to see.
