Caps win 4th Winter Classic

The rain was pouring and the weather was bleak, but that didn’t stop the Washington Capitals defeat their arch-rivals, the Pittsburgh Penguins, and win the 4th Winter Classic by a score of 3-1. Eric Fehr had only his second career multi-goal game, and Semyon Varlamov made 32 saves for the Capitals. The game was originally scheduled for 1 PM ET at Heinz Field, but was moved to 8 PM due to heavy rain. There were puddles on the ice, but most of them didn’t cause too much damage. The lone goal for Pittsburgh was scored by Evgeni Malkin. Neither superstars in the game scored, as Alexander Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby both were non-factors. In a very physical game, Pittsburgh’s Jordan Staal made his first appearance this year, but failed to record a point.
