This afternoon’s weather in Boston looks snowfall-free, so today’s 2010 NHL Winter Classic should go off without a hitch. But just in case, the league has a contingency plan:

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. But that’s only if all else fails.

That beats watching the players slosh through on-ice snowdrifts. Still, I wonder if there isn’t a better way to guard against inclement weather. Maybe a tarp high, high above the rink? Somehow positioned so it doesn’t block out the sightlines for the nosebleed seats? It would negate the open-air hockey motif, but at least the game would proceed uninterrupted.
