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

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.

— Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom in an interview with Washington Post about whether he will be able to play in 2015-16 opener
