CLEVELAND (WJW) — Weather conditions normally don’t factor into if a Cleveland Monsters game is played or not.
But for Saturday’s very-much-outside matchup, the sun got in the way … in March.
“Due to increased sunshine within the past hour, current ice conditions require a delay in the start of the Cleveland Monsters Outdoor Classic game until approximately 6:00 p.m.,” the team said in a statement.
That sun delay didn’t stop Cleveland’s American Hockey League team from a earning another “W.”
The Monsters beat the Wilkes Barre/Scranton Penguins 3-2 in overtime on Saturday evening at the Cleveland Monsters Outdoor Classic at FirstEnergy Stadium, home of the Cleveland Browns.
The Monsters are now 23-24-4-2 and in seventh place in the AHL’s North Division standings.
Those who already made the trek to FirstEnergy Stadium where the game is being played were able to leave and reenter the site if they wish.
