 Today's weather trivia: 20 February 2011: At 4 PM on the field, or rather
¿ice,¿ at Calgary AB¿s McMahon Stadium, it was -9.6°C but it felt more like
-17 with clear skies and 19 km/h winds when the puck was dropped at the
Heritage Classic hockey game. The only statistic that mattered to the 41,000
fans was Flames: 4 Canadiens: 0. Players from both teams used heaters on the
bench and in the dressing rooms. But the fans were on their own.
