Third period begins
Each team will spend half the third period with the wind at their back, which has been a clear advantage throughout this game. Calgary starts the period with the wind advantage, but will switch sides with Montreal at the 10-minute mark.

Once again, Dan Craig's ice crew scraped and flooded the ice by hand and it looked very good under the football stadium's lights.

The period also started quickly on the ice. The teams went more than five minutes without a whistle, which benefitted Calgary, who holds a 3-0 lead.

By the way, the announced attendance is 41,022 for the 2011 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic.
Quote of the Day

I'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
