2011 Winter Classic Part 1

The NHL’s 2011 Winter Classic was held at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on January 1, 2011.  The Pittsburgh Penguins hosted the Washington Capitals in a rain delayed outdoor hockey game in a football stadium. Wow! It was incredible in every way.

I took too many photos to sort and select from.  The first bunch of 42 is here and they cover up through Evgeni Malkin’s goal that opened the scoring in the second period.  The good stuff (if you’re a Washington Capitals fan) should be posted tomorrow.

So much has been written already…but I haven’t read any of it yet so I don’t even know what where would be good to link. I have some suspicions, though.

You can look at the photos here or on flickr.  Once I have them all done, I will create a “best of” gallery that should be easier to get through. Thanks for your patience!

Check These Out, Too!
