Lake Tahoe outdoor games primer: 'Best outdoor rink you'll ever see'


Topping Sidney Crosby scoring a shootout winner in the snow, or a record-setting attendance of 105,491 at Michigan Stadium, or whatever your personal favourite happens to be, is a high bar.


It may be an age-old hockey joke to poke fun at bad teams by suggesting they're hitting the links early, but the two games being played this weekend are set up on the 18th fairway of the Edgewood Tahoe Resort Golf Course, known for hosting the American Century Celebrity Championship.


This has all the feel of a true outdoor hockey game, with sightlines that might be distracting -- if not for the players in the moment, then certainly those watching at home, or lucky enough to be there working.


The Avs have no players left on the league's COVID list, while Vegas has Tomas Nosek remaining after he tested positive more than a week ago.


Robin Lehner remains out with an upper-body injury that's sidelined him for nearly two weeks and Fleury is expected to make his sixth straight start.


Captain Claude Giroux, Jakub Voracek, Travis Konecny, Oskar Lindblom, Scott Laughton and Justin Braun are the regulars who will not be available to them.
