Penguins 2, Sabres 1, SO
Ryan Miller donned a toque, fashioned out of a hockey sock, on top of his mask, while Ty Conklin featured snowflakes and a Winter Classic theme on his mask. Miller and Conklin both had one game of experience playing a major outdoor hockey game, but neither owned a victory. Miller earned a 3-3 tie for Michigan State against Michigan in the 2001 "Cold War" game in front of 74,554 fans at Spartan Stadium. Conklin took the loss in host Edmonton's 4-3 defeat to Montreal on Nov. 22, 2003, during the NHL's first outdoor game, which drew 57,167.
