Greetings from the Winter Classic rink at Heinz Field

By Katie Carrera

Apologies for my Blackberry photo-taking skills but the above is a picture from the Heinz Field press box of the Capitals and Penguins alumni warming up for their early-morning contest here on Pittsburgh's North Shore. At the time of this posting, it's 2-2 with goals by Alan May and Paul Mulvey for the Washington squad. For the Penguins, Rob Brown scored off a feed from Mario Lemieux and Rod Buskas added a second goal.

You can stream the alumni game on the Penguins' website here.

Did Mario complain about the "garage hockey" employed against him, as he did when he was active?

If it's going to be raining on Saturday as predicted and play stoppages are likely, why not just reschedule the game to Sunday at noon if the weather is going to be fine? I understand a lot of fans will be staying overnight in Pittsburgh on Friday night from D.C., but isn't the safety of the players and the quality of play more important than getting the game in on Saturday? I'd rather see the game played under good conditions a day late than risk an injury to one of the Caps star players because it was drizzling and the ice wasn't in good shape..

I swear even though the Pens have beaten and owned us alot these past 20 years in the playoffs or whatever i can't think of a lamer bunch of loser fans and players then Pittsburgh. Even if they continue to beat us i still wouldn't wanna switch players of fans with them, and i certainly wouldn't switch cities with those losers either. LETS GO CAPS!!!
