Is it hot out there in Minnesota or is it just the St. Louis Blues?

Despite a record cold temperature for the 2022 Discover NHL Winter Classic, the Blues showed up for the big game in beach attire; Hawaiian shirts, shorts, sandals, sunglasses. They brought everything but the sand.

Blues defenseman Marco Scandella even brought a cooler of refreshments.

With a game time temperature of minus 8 Farenheit, and a “feels like” temperature around minus 22, this contest is the coldest outdoor game of the 32 the NHL has staged. The previous coldest on record was the first outdoor game, the 2013 Heritage Classic between the Montreal Canadiens and Edmonton Oilers at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton, where the game time temperature was 0 Farenheit.

“Everyone was talking about how cold it is, we thought it would be good to come in just ready to catch some sun and enjoy it,” said Blues captain Ryan O’Reilly. “It was good. We got a good laugh.”

“That was the players’ idea. I thought it was funny, to be honest with you,” Blues coach Craig Berube said. “They talked to me and Doug [Armstrong] about doing something coming into the rink. I wasn’t really sure what they were going to do, so I was a little surprised too. I thought it was pretty good.”

Several measures were taken to help keep fans a little less freezing for the evening affair, including hand warmers at seats and soup at the concession stands of Target Field. Even the ice has to be heated to reach the optimal 22-24 degree temperature for an NHL playing surface.

“Not every year you play in Minnesota with this cold weather and we decided to do something special,” Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko said. “We looked pretty good. It gave those positive emotions for the guys to see each other especially before big games like this. I think it helped us.”

“We knew it was a bold move and we kind of went all in and had fun with it,” goalie Jordan Binnington said. “We just figured when we’re 50 years old looking back are you going to want to see you getting off the bus in a suit or something funny like that and you can laugh and have some good pictures to look back on.”

But none of that seemed to be of any concern for the Blues. The cold never bothered them anyway.
