    This is only the second year that there will be an NHL Winter Classic game.  Last season, on January 1, 2008, this outdoor ice hockey game was played in Orchard Park, New York, at Ralph Wilson Stadium. In that game, the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Buffalo Sabres 2-1 in a shootout.The young Penguins star Sidney Crosby scored the winning goal in the shootout. This year, the two teams will be the Detriot Red Wings playing against the Chicago Blackhawks at Chicago's historic Wrigley Field.  Wrigley Field is usually the home of the Chicago Cubs baseball team, and this will be the first hockey game played in it. What's so different about these games?  It's outdoors! Maybe it'll be cold to watch the game.  But at the same time, the game is going to be so exciting that you hardly even notice! It is an historic event that you should not miss! Get 2009 Winter Classic tickets as soon as possible.
