Washington Capitals are set to host 2015 Winter Classic, source says

Washington has been awarded the NHL's Winter Classic in 2015, a source tells The Canadian Press.

The Capitals will host the game four years after they visited the Penguins at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

Capitals owner Ted Leonsis is set to make the announcement at the team's fan convention Saturday.

It was not immediately clear which team the Capitals will play, though there is speculation it will be the Philadelphia Flyers, who hosted the 2012 outdoor game.

The NHL did not have any comment on the Capitals and their announcement Saturday.

It was not clear where the game would be played. Nationals Park is the most logical place, though RFK Stadium and FedEx Field, which is in Landover, Md., could also be options.

Quote of the Day

Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
