National Hockey League planning more outdoor games at West Point, Air Force Academy

Things to Do in DC This Weekend: An Outdoor Caps Game Unveiling Marion Barry’s Statue and a Fitness Expo Winds calm for Stadium Series; Leafs vs. Capitals

But that was no worry, because Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium is located smack dab next door to a "53-foot, 300-ton capacity refrigeration unit that houses the ice plant used to make the NHL-caliber sheet of ice for the outdoor game", per the Washington Post.

The Toronto Maple Leafs and Washington Capitals are preparing for high winds during Saturday's outdoors game at the U.S. Naval Academy in Maryland.

"It seemed like we were on the right side of the puck all night", said Carlson, who had a goal and two assists and honored former Navy quarterback Roger Staubach with a blue and gold suit featuring his No. 74 on the shoulders.

With music playing and an opportunity to reflect, he contemplated the spectacle of playing an outdoor game at the U.S. Naval Academy that will go down in the standings as an important 5-2 victory by Oshie and the Washington Capitals over the Toronto Maple Leafs. "It comes with the territory when you play these outdoor games".

"That's it, I don't have too many examples for you, " he said. The Capitals were able to extend their streak with a dominant performance. "It's just going to make it a little bit more hard and it might be kind of fun".

Needless to say, National Hockey League teams aren't used to playing in the elements.

"When you do it in Canada, we don't have as big a military, so we haven't had that same thing. We were in good position and the work ethic was there to get back".

"It's just a different atmosphere", Capitals defenseman John Carlson said before playing at 34,000-seat Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

"So every team follows their leaders, and when your leaders are dialed in, I thought they were dialed in tonight. But to have a kind of unique atmosphere and history to this place, and from a fan's point of view, the sight lines and all that are way better at a place like this than a 60,000-seat football field".

Gusts of up to almost 100 km/h drove both clubs indoors on Friday, cancelling some events at the converted football stadium, where around 34,000 fans are expected for the outdoor game. The Capitals are undefeated in their two previous outdoor appearances, but that says nothing about their fitness to play better than the Leafs in 20-plus miles per hour winds.

Arctic conditions are routine for this game; game-time temperature for the Senators-Canadiens game in Ottawa in December was 12 degrees.
