2023 Winter Classic: Live stream, time, date, weather, how to watch Pittsburgh Penguins at Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins, practically unbeatable at home, will try to keep that going at a venue about three miles away.

The Bruins are leading the NHL in large part because they are unbeaten at TD Garden during regulation (18-0-3). They will host the Pittsburgh Penguins outdoors at Fenway Park on Monday afternoon in the NHL's 14th Winter Classic.

It's the second time that the Red Sox stadium is hosting the game. Current Bruins player Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci took part in the 2010 game.

Boston, which overcame key season-opening injuries, is building toward its second Presidents' Trophy in three seasons. Pittsburgh, aiming to extend the league's longest active postseason streak to 17 seasons, has lost four in a row.
