Winter Classic Game Could Be Shortened

from ESPN,

When is a hockey game two periods instead of three?

Worst-case scenario: possibly New Year’s Day at Fenway Park.

A league source confirmed to ESPN.com on Thursday that it is possible the Winter Classic could only go two periods if the weather doesn’t cooperate and the game would still be deemed official.

But that’s only if all else fails.

The league has the same detailed contingency plan it’s had in place for the past two Winter Classics. Snow threatened the 2008 event in Buffalo, N.Y., and there is a chance for frozen precipitation for Friday’s game at Fenway.
