Bobby Hull and Gordie Howe will face-off once again today at the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic. (note: some reports suggest Ted Lindsay will join Hull at center ice instead of Howe)
The two hockey greats will drop pucks at the ceremonial face-off as the defending Stanley Cup champion Detroit Red Wings visit the Chicago Blackhawks outdoors at Wrigley Field, home of baseball's Chicago Cubs.
Tony Esposito, Stan Mikita and Denis Savard will also be present for pre-game ceremonies.
Non-hockey legends also going to be a part of the festivities include Ferguson Jenkins, Ryne Sandberg, Billy Williams, Gale Sayers and Dick Butkus
