Cold snap just in time for Fly­ers, Pens out­door game

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

— Mother Na­ture ap­pears ready to make a kick save on spring ahead of the Sta­dium Se­ries game be­tween the Philadel­phia Fly­ers and Pitts­burgh Pen­guins on Satur­day night at Heinz Field. Af­ter a week of tem­per­a­tures more suit­able for early May than late Fe­bru­ary gave NHL vice-pres­i­dent of fa­cil­i­ties op­er­a­tions Dan Craig some anx­ious mo­ments, a cold front ex­pected to move in early Satur­day morn­ing should have things feel­ing a bit more sea­sonal when the puck drops be­tween the cross-state ri­vals. There’s even a chance of snow be­fore game’s end, a startling con­trast from pleas­ant spring con­di­tions that greeted the Pen­guins when they ar­rived for their skate Fri­day.
