Fans have really enjoyed the NHL’s attempts to play games outside. In 2015 the Washington Capitals will host the Chicago Blackhawks in the Winter Classic.
TSN’s Bob McKenzie broke the news on twitter about the match-up but thus far no site for the game has finalized. McKenzie, and just about everyone else, believes that Nationals Park will end up being the venue.
Venue for Winter Classic in D.C. hasn't been finalized yet but leading candidate is believed to be Nationals Park.

This will be the second appearance in the Winter Classic for the Capitals who played the Pittsburgh Penguins in Heinz Field in 2011. The Blackhawks will be making their third appearance in the game, they played against the Penguins this past season in Solider Field. The Blackhawks have also played against the Detroit Red Wings at Wrigley Field.
