After missing Classic, Zuccarello plays outdoor hero

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- Following a breakout rookie season in 2010-11 when he had 23 points in 42 games, New York Rangers forward Mats Zuccarello had every reason to believe he'd be on the ice for the 2012 NHL Winter Classic at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. But after totaling three points in 10 games to start the 2011-12 season, he was sent to the American Hockey League. By the time the Rangers suited up for their 3-2 outdoor win against the Philadelphia Flyers, Zuccarello was out of the Hartford lineup nursing an ankle injury.

It was a difficult season he hasn't forgotten, especially after playing the hero with two goals in the Rangers' 7-3 win against the New Jersey Devils at Yankee Stadium in a 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game Sunday.

"I was happy for the guys playing the [2012] Winter Classic. It's a good experience. So obviously it was a little disappointing not being able to play that. I wasn't good enough to play," Zuccarello said after scoring the game-tying and game-winning goals against New Jersey. "But [Sunday] was probably better playing in front of our own fans in New York, so I'm happy I could play with this group here and at this stadium."

Devils' Brodeur takes outdoor game loss in stride

Brian Hunter - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- Martin Brodeur's 100th regular-season game against the New York Rangers had the potential to be one of the most special.

Thanks to a four-goal second period marked by numerous defensive breakdowns and unfortunate bounces in front of him, it turned out to be one to forget for the New Jersey Devils goaltender.

Brodeur allowed six goals total on 21 shots and was replaced by Cory Schneider to begin the third period as the Devils lost 7-3 to the Rangers before a sellout crowd of 50,105 in a 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game at Yankee Stadium.

Jagr passes Lemieux on all-time assists list

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

NEW YORK -- Making history seems to have become the norm for New Jersey Devils forward Jaromir Jagr.

He moved up another notch on the NHL all-time list Sunday during the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game against the New York Rangers at Yankee Stadium. His two assists moved him past former teammate Mario Lemieux and into sole possession of 10th place on the League's all-time list with 1,035.

In the first period, Jagr carried the puck below the goal line in the Rangers' end, spun and found a trailing Patrik Elias for a goal from in close at 11:00 of the first period to give the Devils a 2-1 lead.

Later in the first, he grabbed a loose puck off a faceoff on the right side of the Rangers' zone and sent it back to Mark Fayne at the left point. Jagr got to the front of the net and outmuscled Kevin Klein to get a piece of Fayne's long shot. The puck bounced off the pads of Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist but went right to Travis Zajac, who scored at 16:07 to give the Devils a 3-1 lead.

Quote of the Day

Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
