The home of the NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers was the scene of the NHL’s annual Winter Classic, which feature two different teams in a different venue each New Year’s Day.

The 2011 version of the game pitted the Washington Capitals against the Pittsburgh Penguins in Heinz Field.

Eric Fehr outplayed reigning NHL stars Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin by scoring two goals and Washington beat Pittsburgh 3-1 in the rain at Pittsburgh.

After a scoreless first period in which both teams adjusted to playing outdoors at night under brighter lights than in an actual arena; and choppy ice.

When the Penguins took a 1-0 lead on Evgeni Malkin’s 14th goal saw 68,111 fans twiling Terrible Towels just like they do after a Steelers touchdown or field goal.

Fehr gave the Capitals their first lead at 2-1 in the second period and then wrapped up the game on a breakaway in the third.

Washington shut Crosby down completely as he went a second game without a goal or an assist.
