The Winter Classic has quickly transformed into one of the most highly anticipated sporting events of the year. Since 2008, a different city has hosted the NHL Winter Classic on New Years Day, a nostalgic outdoor hockey game played in some of the countries most iconic baseball and football stadiums. As the hype and viewers of the game have been growing rapidly with each passing season, the 2015 Winter Classic was not short on excitement.
The 2015 Winter Classic was held at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., one of the newest ballparks in Major League Baseball. The hometown Washington Capitals played host to Western Conference juggernauts, the Chicago Blackhawks. The Caps started the game firing on all cylinders, netting two goals in under 12 minutes. A Patrick Sharp power play goal put the Blackhawks on the board to end the first period with a 2-1 score. Just moments into the second, Chicago’s Brandon Saad netted his ninth of the year to tie the game up and set the stage for a dramatic ending. After 19 minutes and 27 seconds of back and forth hockey in the third period, Troy Brouwer capped off a Washington victory with a power play goal assisted by Alexander Ovechkin and Mike Green. The 3-2 victory for the Caps will prove valuable as the season goes on, as Washington is currently in a position to earn an Eastern Conference Wild Card bid.
