Dodger Stadium is ready for historic outdoor game


The Los Angeles Kings and the Anaheim Ducks are skating on solid ice at Dodger Stadium. Southern California’s NHL teams held separate practices under cloudy skies in Chavez Ravine on Friday, testing the ice sheet for their landmark outdoor game ( 7 p.m., NBC Sports). The temperature was significantly lower than on the recent 80-degree days leading up to today’s meeting in the first warm-weather outdoor game in NHL history. The Los Angeles weather was practically ideal for this unlikely outdoor event – as long as no rain fell. There’s also a beach volleyball court in left field and a performance stage in right. – Associated Press
