Canucks, Sens to face off outdoors

The Vancouver Canucks are set to host the Ottawa Senators in outdoor game for the NHL Heritage Classic

Vancouver will become the third Canadian city to host a regular-season NHL game outdoors when the Canucks play the Ottawa Senators at BC Place next season in the 2014 Heritage Classic.

Edmonton hosted Montreal in the original Heritage Classic in 2003 in the NHL's first outdoor regular-season game. Calgary hosted the Canadiens in the 2011 edition.

The March 2 game in Vancouver will be the first played in a retractable-roof facility.
