According to Boston Bruins correspondant, Shawn Hutcheon, the 2016 Winter Classic will be a showdown between the Montreal Canadiens and the Boston Bruins at Gillette Stadium, the home of the New England Patriots.

 

Remember, this is purely speculation. Although the Boston Bruins hosted the 2010 Winter Classic at Fenway Park, they did express interest in hosting it again. One snag would be convincing the New England Patriots to play a slew of away games in order to transform the field into an ice rink. An official announcement is expected to be made after the All Star game.
