CHICAGO -- The Pittsburgh Penguins were wrapping up practice Friday when Tanner Glass grabbed an iPad mini and skated around the temporary rink in the middle of Soldier Field. The 30-year-old Canadian forward smiled as he captured the chilly scene, which took him all the way back to when he first learned to skate at his grandparents farm. "As I grew up, there was an outdoor rink right beside by the main rink," said Glass, a native of Regina, Saskatchewan. "So even tournaments, wed have our real game inside and then wed all just take half our gear off and run across to the outdoor rink and play all day. It reminds me of that and kind of the good old days." Yup, these outdoor games still have an allure for NHL players, especially when they involve two of the best teams in the league. The league gets a marquee prime-time finish for its successful Stadium Series when Sidney Crosby and the Penguins take on Jonathan Toews and the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night at the home of the NFLs Chicago Bears. "Youve got two pretty fast, skilled hockey teams and if the ice can kind of agree with everyone I think that would make for a pretty good product out there," Crosby said. The forecast calls for light snow and temperatures in the teens, but each team has some experience with the pratfalls of playing outside. Chicago lost 6-4 to rival Detroit in the 2009 Winter Classic at Wrigley Field. Crosby had the winning shootout goal when visiting Pittsburgh beat Buffalo 2-1 in the first Winter Classic in 2008, but the Penguins lost 3-1 to Washington when they hosted the 2011 game at Heinz Field. Now the Blackhawks and Penguins return to the great outdoors for their first meeting since Pittsburghs 3-2 victory on Dec. 20, 2011. Its their first game in Chicago since Patrick Kane had the only shootout goal in the Blackhawks 3-2 win on Feb. 20 of that year. While scheduling and the leagues most recent labour dispute have kept the teams apart, the players are plenty familiar with one another. Team captains Crosby and Toews face off for the first time in an NHL regular-season game after leading Canada to the gold medal in the Sochi Olympics last weekend. Crosby, Toews and Penguins forward Chris Kunitz scored in their countrys 3-0 victory in the final against Sweden, which included Marcus Kruger, Johnny Oduya and Niklas Hjalmarsson of the Blackhawks. Penguins coach Dan Bylsma got a chance to see Kane up close when he was behind the bench for Team USA in Russia. "Ive learned quite a bit about his competitiveness," Bylsma said. "You kind of see the smile. Its certainly a ton of skill how he plays the game, but I was impressed by it and learned just the competitiveness that he has and brings to the game. Skill-wise you see it live." The first NHL game at Soldier Field also features two teams in need of a win. The Penguins are coming off a 6-5 shootout loss to Montreal, while the Blackhawks lost 2-1 at the New York Rangers on Thursday night. Chicago, which almost tied the game against the Rangers in the final seconds, is playing its first game in the Windy City since Jan. 26. "Everybody is excited for Saturday," centre Peter Regin, who scored the only goal against New York, said Thursday night. "Obviously we were hoping to get a different outcome tonight, but we play in two days. That is the good thing about the NHL, you play every second night, so its not so long before you can redeem yourself." nfl jerseys china . Harrison combined with four relievers on a five-hitter to get his first victory since September 2012, in his first home start since April 2013, and the Rangers won 5-0 Thursday night after being overwhelmed by the Rockies the previous three games. wholesale nfl jerseys . - Hall of Fame centre Bill Russell was arrested this week at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport after Transportation Security Administration officials found a loaded gun in his luggage. .

Cornishs touchdown helped seal a 32-20 win for the Calgary Stampeders over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Saturday night, their first home victory of the season. The Stampeders (4-2) trailed the Ticats 20-13 at half time before rallying in front of 29,307 fans at McMahon Stadium. "It was a big deal because the fans come out and they support us every game," Cornish said. "We had almost 30,000 people out tonight. Losing at home is not a fun feeling so coming out and contributing to the win, thats a big deal for me. Its something that Im always happy to do for this team." Cornish also commended fellow Calgary running back Joffrey Reynolds for urging him to get into the game late in the fourth quarter. "He really hooked me up on that last touch because it was his rotation," said Cornish, who finished with 19 rushing yards on four carries and 44 more yards on two receptions. "He let me have that last touchdown." Reynolds, who scored on a one-yard plunge into the end zone in the third quarter, said he had his bell rung on the previous play and was happy to let Cornish take his turn out on the field. "On the play before I had hit the ground pretty hard," said Reynolds, who finished with 41 yards rushing on 10 carries and 47 more yards on four receptions. "I was kind of seeing stars a little bit. Jons very capable. We have a good working relationship. He understands when I want the ball. Hes a young guy and he wants to get some balls thrown his way too." Calgary quarterback Henry Burris praised both Cornish and Reynolds for their willingness to take their turns on the field. "Whether it was the run or the pass, Cornish and Joffrey were effective in many ways," said Burris, who completed 27-of-39 passes for 341 yards to move past Tom Clements and into eighth spot all-time in CFL passing. "When it was time to run, those boys pounded it up in there and got some very important yards for us." Larry Taylor caught a touchdown pass in the first quarter, Rene Paredes kicked three field goals and a single, while Burke Dales added a single for the Stamps. Dave Stala caught a touchdown pass for the Ticats (3-3), whose winning streak ended at three games. "We came out flat in the second half," Stala said. "Our offence looked dead, our whole team looked dead. We didnt put anything up. Weve got to hellp out our defence and score some more points.dddddddddddd" Avon Cobourne had a rushing touchdown, while Justin Medlock kicked a pair of field goals. Hamilton quarterback Kevin Glenn, who went 20-for-34 for 211 yards, referred to the setback as very frustrating. "Our defence pretty much gave us a chance all the way to the end until they scored that last touchdown," Glenn said. "We should have taken advantage of some of the opportunities that were given to us and we didnt, but youve still got to give them credit because they won the game. "Its frustrating. I dont necessarily think its a setback, its just something we can learn from." On Calgarys first possession, Burris engineered a five-play, 75-yard drive culminating in a 25-yard touchdown pass to Taylor. After Medlock connected on an impressive 52-yard field goal, Burris marched the Stamps into scoring territory once again and appeared to toss a 28-yard touchdown pass to Jabari Arthur. Hamilton coach Marcel Bellefeuille threw his challenge flag and the play was subsequently overturned forcing Paredes to kick a 35-yard field goal to put the Stamps up 10-3. Stala then capped off a six-play, 75-yard drive for Hamilton by catching a seven-yard pass from Glenn in the end zone to tie the contest. Early in the third quarter, Glenn marched the Ticats on an eight-play, 80-yard drive that was capped off by a six-yard TD run by Cobourne. After Paredes kicked a 21-yard field goal, Medlock responded with a 42-yarder as time wound down in the half to give Hamilton a 20-13 lead. At 5:32 of the third quarter, Reynolds plunged into the end zone from one-yard out to cap off a seven-play, 74-yard Calgary drive to tie up the contest. The Stamps then took a 24-20 lead after Dales booted a 72-yard single and Paredes kicked a 35-yard field goal. Paredes added a single in the fourth quarter before Cornish ran for his TD to round out the scoring. "The offensive line came off and blew those guys off into the end zone and Cornish just found a hole and ran it behind the guys," Burris said. Notes: Backup quarterback Drew Tate returned to Calgarys lineup after being sidelined for the first five games of the season with a shoulder injury. ... All of Calgarys first five games were decided by five points or less. ... The Stamps and Ticats will also play on Sept. 25 in Moncton, N.B., for Touchdown Atlantic 2011. ... The Ticats didnt record a single first down in the third quarter. cheap nfl jerseys ' ' '
