There was no reason to even try to do an outdoor game this season, let alone bringing two east coast teams to Tahoe to have another one today when they have set the schedule to only divisional to minimize travel risk.

I disagree. There should be more outdoor games than ever this season. Players have clearly been struggling staying engaged without fans, and it’s not fun for us to watch either.

This is the one time where the novelty makes sense - especially without fans where they can have backdrops like Tahoe.

They just bungled the logistics.

They messed up big time. Postponing a game 8+ hours after one period has been played is a trrrible look

That said, I agree with shmenguin. Outdoor games in the NHL are the coolest thing in sports. It’s crappy from a competition perspective (since the ice is usually in poor quality and whatnot) and I’m sure mikey despises it but it’s appointment viewing for me every year. I just hope the backlash from yesterday doesn’t stop them from doing it in the future; I just hope they learn from their mistakes

shmenguin has returned to the board with much better takes than he used to have.

The outdoor games as an idea jumped the shark after the 3rd or 4th game. They aren't good hockey to watch on TV, they suck hard in person... just stop doing them.

It is pretty hilarious that the NHL finally chose a scenic location for outdoor games but the sun ruined it. So now they are night games and may as well be in an arena.

But yeah, this season should've been jam packed with outdoor games. More specifically, the games should've been in NFL stadiums where the NHL would be allowed to have fans (at least in most markets).

Yeah but we’re still half a Curtis Martin discussion away from a very different conclusion

I don’t get this stance. Who the fudge cares? They’ve been playing with house money for a decade with being able to play these outdoor games without having too many weather issues.

I also agree with shmengy. Play every other game outdoors. Play on an aircraft carrier in the Hudson Bay. Play on Mars.

for the Avs v Knights, I agree but for last night's Bruins v Flyers, that sunset over the Sierras was worth the price of admission and there was something different about the lighting for the Sunday game. the shadows and random people walking around took me right back to my street hockey league games when I was 7 years old. something about it had that public park look.

Pens OT win followed by Hawks SO win followed by Sens SO win might have been the most entertaining 10 minutes of 2021 so far.

Stutzle goal was pretty nasty..

RE: outdoor games , the year they brought in the stadium series and had like 4-6 in one season was a bit much.. I actually really liked the idea of the location with multiple games on the sheet in Tahoe, it just didnt work out and yeah it didnt make sense to bring teams from East all the way to Tahoe.

Wonder if they'll try to throw another one together somewhere else prior to the end of the season.

Now wait a minute. The Canucks jersey is the same exact concept as the Caps RR. I think you just dislike red white and blue.

No, you wait a minute...the logo matches the jersey, the Caps jersey doesn't use the gradient tool...and I said the only thing I liked about the Caps jersey is the red. It's just that the logo stinks and doesn't match and the diagonal stripe stinks...
