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.
