NEW YORK -- The time is right for NHL stars Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin to put aside their rivalry in a bid to promote the Winter Classic.
The Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals captains will appear together Monday on the game show "The Price Is Right" on CBS.
With retired star Jeremy Roenick, they'll introduce an NHL-themed showcase that includes a trip to Pittsburgh for the teams' New Year's Day meeting outdoors at Heinz Field.
The three will join host Drew Carey to present a showcase that includes VIP passes to the league's New Year's Eve bash, plus ice-level access during the Dec. 31 practices at Heinz Field. A 2011 Honda CR-Z hybrid car also is one of the prizes.
Roenick will introduce another NHL prize that includes a trip to the 2011 Stanley Cup final.
