Blackhawks will play Washington in 2015 Winter Classic

The Blackhawks will visit the Washington Capitals on New Year’s Day to play in their second Winter Classic, according to a source, confirming an initial report by TSN’s Bob McKenzie. It will be the Hawks’ third outdoor game and their second appearance in the Winter Classic, the NHL’s marquee regular-season event. It also means the Hawks likely will be part of HBO’s acclaimed “24/7″ series leading up to the game.
