It sounds like it'll go ahead. Environment Canada says the low (the LOW) tonight will be -18, warming up to -8 by Sunday morning. Unless there's a lot of wind, -18 is a perfectly good temperature to play outdoor hockey, especially with thermal and polypropelene underwear, full equipment, heated benches, and two intermissions.
To me they should suck it up and think about the extra 25,000 fans who won't see the game if it's played indoors tomorrow. Some of those people have travelled a long way to see the game. Unless the conditions are brutal, they should play.
