The Noon Number: Winter Classic Style

With the Bruins off until Thursday and the NHL's marquee Winter Classic game taking place today, here's an outdoor-flavored noon number:

3 - The number of consecutive Stanley Cup winners that have participated in the Winter Classic the season prior to winning the Cup - Boston in 2011, Chicago in 2010 and Detroit in 2009.

If tradition holds, either the Pittsburgh Penguins or the Washington Capitals should be claiming the Cup in 2012, and the Rangers or Flyers have early dibs on the hardware in 2013.
