Fans Brave 40 Degree Drop in Temperature For NHL Stadium Series Game

Tailgaters outside Heinz Field in Pittsburgh for the NHL Stadium series admitted they weren’t ready for the sudden drop in temperature. The highly-anticipated outdoor game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers was held at Heinz Field on Feb. 25th.

“Yesterday I was in shorts, today I’m freezing,” one fan said to CBS Pittsburgh.

The temperature was in the 70's the day before and tailgaters at the game were in shorts and t-shirts but by the time the game was in full swing, a light drizzle had turned into a full force winter storm with wind and ice and snow. Penguin fan Chris Kennedy said, “My wife’s going to use these blankets, I got the pure adrenaline of a great hockey game to keep me warm tonight,” CBS Pittsburgh reported.

The National Hockey League and a dozen of its corporate partners entertained hockey fans in Pittsburgh with The PreGame, the official tailgate party of the 2017 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series™. Held at the parking lot across from Heinz Field, the two-day hockey-themed, family-friendly festival was free and open to the public and feature live music, special appearances, and food and hockey attractions, including the NHL Centennial Fan Arena.

Stanley Cup Made History

The NHL Centennial Fan Arena also featured the most revered trophy in all sports -- the Stanley Cup®. An announced attendance of 67,318 made the game one of the most attended outdoor NHL games in history!

The NHL has held outdoor games across North America involving 23 of its 30 teams in all kinds of conditions, as cold as 0 degrees at faceoff, as warm as 65.
