Will they play at -20? I doubt it.

The puck will be like a rock and the glass will probably be very fragile around the boards.
As a bonus, it is almost always warmer downtown than it is at the airport. Those few degrees, plus the low wind, may leave us with some hockey. I've played quite a few times in this kind of weather - it's really not that much of a difference between -15 and -20 (but then I've never gotten used to playing in places as warm as the Colosseum).
