The series between the Montreal Canadians and the Las Vegas Golden Knights is in full swing. The first two games will be played in extreme heat in Nevada.

The maximum mark in the month of June is 47.2 C.
At this point, Montreal gets the ideal temperature, while the mercury is just over 20 C. The next two scheduled games will take place on Friday and Sunday at the Bell Center. Mercury growth is expected, but the weather is very pleasant close to seasonal values.
From one intensity to another
This season, the Canadians played a game with the Jets in Winnipeg in February. Mercury indicated -24 C. On June 16, a contrast of 71 degrees awaits them.
