Winter Classic 2015: Schedule, TV Info and Preview for Blackhawks vs. Capitals

December 27th, 2014 by Nate Loop Leave a reply »

On New Year's Day 2015, the Chicago Blackhawks will take on the Washington Capitals in this season's edition of the Winter Classic, a regular-season hockey match unremarkable in every way except for the fact that it reconnects the glorious winter sport to the great outdoors, conjuring up images of young skaters on frozen ponds, braving arctic conditions in the pursuit of sporting pleasure.

Sure, this edition of the Winter Classic will take place in the cavernous Nationals Park in Washington D.C.—so no, not nearly as modest as a frozen pond—but that shouldn't take away from the charm of the event.

Bringing hockey back to the great outdoors is an annual event that puts the sport on a national stage in the midst of the NFL playoff push and the college football bowl mania.

Here is a look at the schedule and television information for the contest.
