I might try throwing them in the dryer for a few minutes (we have a removable shelf that you can sit the skates on so they get heated without being tossed around) to loosen them up before I play since I only live about 3 minutes from the rink.
I'd advise against that. For it to do any good you have to put them on right when they come out, while they are still warm. Put them on and lace them up snug, NOT tight. DO NOT stand or walk in them while they are hot. Sit and let them cool on your feet.
