We're underway
As expected, the ice has been an early talking point as the bitter cold has impacted the ability to maintain the ice at a proper temperature.

Earlier Sunday, Dan Craig and his ice crew decided that they would not take the Zamboni onto the ice surface for fears of further damaging the surface. So, the crew is shoveling the ice clear by hand and flooding it with a hose.

They are also patching holes on the ice during breaks to make the ice as good as possible, resulting in a few delays.
Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
