BOSTON (AP) - The National Hockey League is coming to Fenway Park.

The league is expected to announce at a news conference there Wednesday that the Boston Bruins will play the third annual Winter Classic at the home of the Boston Red Sox on Jan. 1. The opponent is expected to be the Philadelphia Flyers or the Washington Capitals.

The NHL said Friday the news conference is being held to "make a major announcement concerning a special event." The league did not respond Friday to an e-mail request for comment.

Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs said in late May that he expected the game to be at Fenway and that the NHL would make an official announcement in July.

In the NHL's other two outdoor games on New Year's Day, Pittsburgh played Buffalo at Ralph Wilson Stadium in 2008 and Detroit played Chicago at Wrigley Field this year.
