Lancers top Stars in outdoor hockey opener
As water splashes up, the Lincoln Stars' Justin Woods, center in black, collides with Omaha Lancer Gage Hough, left, as Omaha's Robbie Baillargeon, and Lincoln's Tommy Schutt, right, look for the puck during the third period. Omaha won 4-2 over Lincoln during the Battles on Ice event at TD Ameritrade Park on Saturday.

Though it turned out to be more of a Battle on Slush than a Battle on Ice, the Omaha Lancers and Lincoln Stars who spent more time jumping over the blue lines than skating across them Saturday at TD Ameritrade Park still will cherish the experience of playing an outdoor game.
The Lancers figure to have the better recollections. They scored four first-period goals en route to a 4-2 victory over the rival Stars in the first outdoor game in the history of the United States Hockey League.
