The venue for the Winter Classic being in D.C. hasn’t been finalized, but the leading candidate is considered Nationals Park. It will be the seventh edition of the NHL’s New Year’s game and the second time that both teams have participated: the Blackhawks hosting the Red Wings at Wrigley Field in 2009, and the Caps visiting Heinz Field to face the Penguins.
