I got caught up watching this game! More fun to watch than any of the bowl games on yesterday...... Even though Michigan / Florida was good.

The league has already indicated an interest in doing it again. Obviously it needs to be a cold weather city and have a stadium that is laid out in a way to make it possible.

Maybe NY and the old Giants stadium before it meets the wrecking ball? Columbus at Ohio State's field? Imagine doing it at a college stadium that seats almost 100,000!

Their were a couple things the league could have done better (getting people out with shovels more often to clear the ice) but it was obviously a learning experience. Dealing with the 6 inch "crown" on the field was a big enough hurdle to deal with, and was the cause for most of the ice issues. I wonder if using the chemical in the water that the old "aud" had in buffalo would have helped. It made the ice "harder" at higher temps, as the aud refrigeration system was not as powerful as some of the newer ones.

I could see this becoming a yearly tradition for the NHL. The Buffalo area saw about a $5 million dollar impact from the game with hotel rooms and sales of food in area restaurants. 2 years in a row the city has benefited from sporting events with the men's NCAA basketball tournament rounds 1 and 2 last year and this game this year

I would love to see a game here at Ohio State's field, but i do not see it happening just because it just cannot seem to get cold long enough for it to happen. The most time we've seen this winter with temps below 32F are usually 4-5 days, but that's only happened a few times this winter.

It would be really hard to keep the ice cold unless they had a really good refrigeration system that would be powerful enough to keep two rinks cold on indoor ice, although im not sure if it would be possible to lay the brine lines that close together without causing an issue with the system.

There's a rink about an hour from Columbus that i know started as an outdoor rink but they ended up enclosing it because the winters here were not cold enough to keep it up, there is also one out by the indoor rink in Dublin, although it looks a little old, so i do not know if it's in use at all anymore.

The game ended well, I enjoyed it.

It was a slow moving game, and I laughed at the switching sides every 10 minutes.

They only switched sides in the 3rd period at the 10 minute mark (and at 2:30 in OT.)


I thought it was a great game, lots of exctement built around it, *the ice problems they were having did cause some nice long delays however that did kind of slowed the game down, but that was all part of the fun.

It was fun to watch the player's faces as it looked like they really were enjoying this, almost like being a kid again, playing hockey on the pond. *

Sabres/Penguins to play outdoors

With that said, since M.A. Fluery had to come in to play the final 17 seconds of the game, is Johnson credited with the shutout still, or do both Johnson and Fluery share the shutout?
