The Boston Bruins finally know who they’ll face in the 2023 Winter Classic at Fenway Park.

The Pittsburgh Penguins will be shipping out to Boston for the Jan. 2 outdoor showdown, the visitors confirmed Wednesday.

Pittsburgh had been the Bruins’ expected opponent ever since the NHL announced in February that Boston would host. Fenway Sports Group, the company that owns Fenway Park and the Red Sox, purchased the Penguins in December 2021.

This will be the Penguins’ sixth outdoor game in franchise history and the Bruins’ fifth. It will also be the second Winter Classic at Fenway Park. Boston beat the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 in overtime during the first contest at the iconic ballpark back in 2010.
