STILL POPULAR: In Chicago, David Haugh notes Blackhawks Chair Rocky Wirtz "expressed fewer doubts about the overall success of one of the league's brightest ideas under Commissioner Gary Bettman" -- the proliferation of outdoor games. Wirtz said, "Outdoor games pique everyone's curiosity. For the Wrigley (Field game in 2009) our fan base was still pretty small. ... If we can bring any new fan in, it's all about growing the game." Organizers of Saturday's Penguins-Blackhawks Coors Light Stadium Series game at Soldier Field "expect a capacity crowd of 61,000 even if temperatures dip into single digits." Haugh: "At some point the novelty of NHL outdoor games will wear off ... but nobody appears overly concerned yet" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 2/27).
