VANCOUVER — The roof at BC Place will remain closed Sunday during the 2014 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic (4 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC, RDS) between the Vancouver Canucks and Ottawa Senators.

The decision was made based on the accumulation of precipitation already on the retractable roof and the forecast of more rain.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
