Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist's mask for the New York Rangers upcoming Coors Light NHL Stadium Series games at Yankee Stadium pays tribute to some of the baseball immortals who have worn pinstripes.
Lundqvist's mask for the games against the New Jersey Devils on Jan. 26 and the New York Islanders on Jan. 29 includes pictures of Yankees legends Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Joe DiMaggio on the right side. The left side has a representation of Lady Liberty, and the front features a pinstriped motif.
I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
