I hate the outdoor games. They are terrible to watch. The ice always sucks. They shouldn't count towards the season standings. If the NHL is so dead set on outdoor hockey, they should just do an outdoor all star weekend. I'm staying up to watch the remainder when it restarts at 11 PM.
I've also been pleasantly surprised by the Hawks this season. They are reminiscent of the 2010 team. Some of the young newcomers like Kurashev and Pius Suter have been fun to watch. DeBrincat continues to develop and Kane seems to look better each year.
