>> happy new year to you both, jim and chris. the redskins hope the 2016 starts the way 2015 ended. three wins in a row to close out the season has the burgundy and gold sitting as champs of the nfc east. what that means is the final game of the year has no playoff implication. it is the cowboy, the last time the skins lost two back in week 13, and the battle in the season finale will be trying to find a balance between trying to win and coping momentum for the playoffs and keeping everyone healthy and not being looking past alex. >> i would be lying for you if it wasn't on my mind, but i know the way i'm built and the message that we've had since the players came in on today is i live in the moment and be where you are and we're in week 17 and we're playing the dallas cowboys this week. that's been our message from day one when the players came back in after the philly game and we're here now and we'll worry
about next week. next week. >> so we have to wait until sunday to catch the skins in action and just a few more minutes to catch the whiz kids. however, we didn't have to wait to see the new year's hockey game outside and new england in the annual winter classic. >> and foxboro's gillette stadium. home of the patriots and the site for today's big game doesn't take long for the first goal, just over a minute and david harvick turns his hockey stick into a baseball bat. it works and he gets the goal. visitors take an early lead. another batted puck and brandon gallagher, the final batter there time around and montreal in control up 3-0 in the third and the bruins finally get on the board and the shot from the point cuts the lead to two. that was as close as they would get. montreal on the 2-1-1. he finishes it off and canadiens win big, 5-1, the final.

semifinal for new year's eve and clemson scored 21 unanswered to punch their ticket for the big game. >> the wizards will have a hard time breaking their two-game losing streak and they face the southeast division and winners in four of the last five and the good news for the whiz kids they've beaten orlando ten straight times and desperately need to extend that streak to 11. >> it's not so much orlando. we've got to play the way we need to play. that doesn't change no matter who our opponent is, so it's going to take one of our better games coming out tonight, but we've proven through the first two games what we need to do and how we have to go about doing it. >> wizards take the court at 7:00. as always, catch the game on csn. victor oladipo returns home and plays as a member of the magic
