CHICAGO -- Sidney Crosby will take his skates outside for a day in Pittsburgh next season, and Calgary will host a game in the elements, too.

Commissioner Gary Bettman announced Friday that the Penguins will host the Washington Capitals at Heinz Field on New Year's Day, the fourth installment of the Winter Classic.

Crosby's team played the Sabres in Buffalo in the first edition.

Also, Bettman said the Flames are expected to host the Montreal Canadiens at McMahon Stadium on Feb. 20.

Montreal played the Oilers in Edmonton in the 2003 Heritage Classic, the league's first outdoor regular-season game.

Two seasons ago, the Chicago Blackhawks hosted the Detroit Red Wings at Wrigley Field.

And last season, the Boston Bruins hosted the Philadelphia Flyers at Fenway Park.
