Podcast: NHL All-Star Game expectations

Alex Silverman and hockey writer Ian Thomas talk about this weekend's NHL All-Star Game in Columbus as well as where they expect the league to take outdoor games in the future.

Among the comments:

"This gives the league another opportunity to try some new things. I think everyone saw that from the jerseys and the inspiration they had there. … There's also a big opportunity here for analytics or 'fancy' stats."

"The expectation is that there'll be some more outdoor games (other than the Winter Classic). … It seems like a lot of signs are pointing to Colorado getting a game. It makes a lot of sense. … Two cities that I would say to keep an eye on are St. Louis and Buffalo."
