Three-Minute Time Lapse Of Heinz Field Winter Classic Transformation (Video)

It appears as though Heinz field is all set to go for the much anticipated 2011 NHL Winter Classic game between the Washington Capitals and the Pittsburgh Penguins at Heinz Field on New Years Day.  Immediately following the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Thursday night home victory over the Carolina Panthers, preparations began to transform the football field into a skating rink in time for these two bitter NHL rivals to hit the ice for the league’s first game in the new year.

The process of converting a football field into a skating rink is no three minute job, but thanks to this time lapse video that is all the time we will need to witness the transformation take place.
