Actually, the L.A. Kings did it first, 12 years ago in Las Vegas. They played in the parking lot of Caesar's Palace. Wayne Gretzky was a player at the time (although it MAY have been a pre-season game).

Whatever, I hope the weekend goes wonderfully for Edmontonians, and look forward to watching the game on HNiC.
