Stream Hockey Night in Canada games on Saturday
NHL Stadium Series brings outdoor ice hockey to southern California
After the success of open-air games in colder climes like Chicago and Ann Arbor, Mich., the NHL is looking to pull off an even bigger al fresco feat.
The league’s ice-making aces have been busy tending to a temporary ice rink at Los Angeles' Dodger Stadium. The venue will host a contest between the hometown Kings and southern California rivals the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday night.
(In case you’re wondering, the weather forecast calls for clear skies and temperatures around 17 C in L.A.)
Are you dying to see whether the ice surface withstands the California warmth? Watch the game online via CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada stream to find out.
You can also catch a bunch of Canadian teams in action earlier in the evening. Here's a list of NHL games available to stream on Saturday night.
Toronto Maple Leafs at Winnipeg Jets — 7 p.m. ET
They both had winning streaks snuffed out Thursday night on the road and they both want to get back on track Saturday as the Toronto Maple Leafs and Winnipeg Jets meet for the first time this season.
"We have to have a reset button here," Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said after practice Friday at the MTS Centre.
The game starts at 7 p.m. ET, but the stream kicks off at 6:30 p.m. Click here to watch it.
Washington Capitals at Montreal Canadiens — 7 p.m. ET
The Washington Capitals haven't experienced this steep of a slide in more than three years.
The Montreal Canadiens haven't been much better, but their poor defensive-zone play could get a reprieve against the offensively challenged Capitals.
The two slumping clubs will meet Saturday night in Montreal with each hoping to avoid a winless weekend after extending their losing streaks Friday.
The pre-game show commences at 6:30 p.m., while the on-ice action revs up just after 7 p.m. Click here to stream the game.
Anaheim Ducks at Los Angeles — 9:30 p.m. ET
Teemu Selanne skated off the ice and walked to the visitors' dugout at Dodger Stadium, rubbing the eye black on his cheekbones in disbelief beneath the southern California sky.
''If somebody would tell me 10 years ago that we were going to do this, I would have said they're crazy,'' Selanne said. ''But we have the technology to do it now, and it's pretty great.''
Dodger Stadium isn't a field of dreams for many hockey players, but the Los Angeles Kings and the Anaheim Ducks are thrilled by the chance to play the NHL's most unlikely outdoor game on Saturday.
The show starts at 9:30 p.m. ET. Click here to watch the game.
