The Bubble ‘Boys’

from NHL.com,

NHL chief content officer Steve Mayer and League executive vice president of events Dean Matsuzaki -- aka the Mayer of Hub City and Dean of the Secure Zone -- are embedded in the NHL hub cities for the Stanley Cup Qualifiers and the duration of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

They each will be writing a blog for NHL.com from Edmonton and Toronto to give fans the latest happenings from inside the bubbles.
Here are their entries for Tuesday:

Steve Mayer in Edmonton
For most of our team, instead of life in the bubble, it should be called life in the arena.

We get to Rogers Place by 8 a.m. and we walk out just before midnight.

Three games a day and each one seems to be getting a little better from the standpoint of coordination with our set design, game presentation and broadcasting. We like the prospects of what we've put together.

As everybody has seen over the course of the first few days, we've created a really visual environment that is unique to this year's tournament. We really hope that our fans are enjoying what it looks like.

We also are trying to have a little fun and not take ourselves too seriously.
