Cody Ceci leads Ottawa Senators past Vancouver Canucks 4-2 in Heritage Classic

VANCOUVER - The NHL's outdoor series has gone indoors.

The B.C. Place Stadium roof was closed due to rain for today's Heritage Classic between the Vancouver Canucks and Ottawa Senators.

Mother Nature teased Vancouver and Ottawa players who had hoped the roof would be open for the big game as they battled for playoff positions in the Western and Eastern Conferences, respectively.

Although Vancouver received a light snowfall overnight, a morning drizzle forced the closure of the stadium's retractable roof.

Even with the roof closed, there was a chill in the air. But the rain did not dampen the spirits of fans, who wore many layers of clothing in anticipation of cold temperatures.

More than 50,000 fans showed up for the game, which was the first stadium contest for both teams.

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.

— Coyotes GM Don Maloney on defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson
