NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils coach Peter DeBoer wouldn't mind a few snowflakes in the forecast for his team's showdown with the New York Rangers on Sunday at Yankee Stadium in the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series (12:30 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC).

The game is the fourth between the Metropolitan Division rivals this season, with the Devils having won the previous three by a combined 11-5.

In addition to having visions of snowflakes falling on the infield ice at Yankee Stadium, the third-year Devils coach also has a big decision to make Saturday when his team practices at the iconic ballpark.

Who will be his starting goalie against the Rangers, Martin Brodeur or Cory Schneider?

DeBoer acknowledged after a 2-1 victory against the Washington Capitals on Friday that each has played well this season.

"It's a tough decision and that's a credit to both these players" DeBoer said. "I will make a decision first thing [Saturday]. But it just shows the type of professionals both guys are; they've handled this so well all year long."

First outdoor game marks unique moment for Brodeur

NEWARK, N.J. -- The fond memories of shinny hockey outdoors with dad are still fresh in the mind of New Jersey Devils draft pick Anthony Brodeur.

"A few years ago, we were up in Canada for Christmas and I remember playing hockey on the lake with him a lot," Brodeur told NHL.com. "There were a lot of other family members there as well. It was a great time."

Brodeur did note that neither he nor dad, Martin Brodeur, served as goalie that day while at the family cottage in Quebec.

Rangers need points from outdoor games

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- The New York Rangers need victories as they try to hang onto a berth in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Having lost back-to-back games at Madison Square Garden, they'll try to bounce back when they play their next two games outdoors.

The Rangers face the New Jersey Devils on Sunday and the New York Islanders on Wednesday. Both games will be played at Yankee Stadium as part of the Coors Light NHL Stadium Series. After a 2-1 loss to the St. Louis on Thursday, the Rangers' next practice is slated for Saturday at the stadium, and it's dawning on them what the experience will be like.

"We'll see on Saturday when we get to go there and skate. I think it will start to settle in once we get there," defenseman Marc Staal said. "We'll regroup tomorrow and get back to work."

Airplane replays one highlight of Stadium Series

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NBC is bringing the airplane replay back for the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series games.

NBC executive producer Sam Flood said on a conference call Thursday that the production teams for the game Saturday at Dodger Stadium and at Yankee Stadium for games Sunday and Wednesday will have the ability to use replays captured from a camera placed in an airplane that will be flying over the venue.

The airplane replay is something NBC has done for most of the NHL's outdoor games.

"The production enhancement is being at a baseball stadium, in the elements with an open sky and an airplane overhead to show you the cool angles," Flood said. "One of our favorite things to do in an outdoor game is show a replay from an airplane. Can't do that indoors."

Yankee Stadium crew combats snow, set to paint ice

NEW YORK -- NHL senior manager of facilities operations and ice guru Mike Craig had his crew spending most of Tuesday removing the foot of snow that fell on Yankee Stadium over the course of the evening.

The winter storm put a sizable halt to the work they were hoping to do in preparation for the two games the stadium will host as part of the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series, with the New York Rangers facing the New Jersey Devils on Jan. 26 and the New York Islanders on Jan. 29.

In fact, there was still plenty of snow to clear when Craig's crew arrived Wednesday morning at 5:30 am. But with a large group volunteering their shoveling services, the snow was eventually cleared, paving the way for the next step in the Yankee Stadium transformation.

Yankee Stadium rink work slowed by snowstorm

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- The beginnings of a snowstorm expected to dump up to a foot of snow on the New York area halted the progress Tuesday of readying an ice rink at Yankee Stadium for the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series.

Senior manager of facilities operations Mike Craig and his crew of eight rink-builders were on schedule to paint the surface white at the Stadium, but the storm arrived and the rest of the day involved a lot of shoveling.

"There's nothing we can do other than wait it out and keep removing snow so that when it does stop we can keep going," Craig said. "Basically our schedule for today was to get ourselves ready to paint white, and we were going to do lines and logos tomorrow. What this does is, tomorrow is going to be a longer day for us because we have to make sure we get all of the white down and all the lines and logos and sealed up and ready to build up from there."

Ex-players turn Bryant Park into winter wonderland

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- There they were walking through the snow with sticks in hands, bags slung over their shoulders and hockey jerseys on. If this was put on a green screen it could have been made to look like Mike Richter, Brian Leetch, Dave Maloney, Ken Daneyko and Grant Marshall were walking through the woods to the frozen pond, where they would shovel off the surface to make enough room for a game of shinny.

Except this was happening Tuesday in the heart of New York City, during a walk five blocks down Sixth Avenue from the NHL Store on 47th Street to Bryant Park, with a backdrop of honking cars, yellow cabs, sirens coming from fire engines trying to speed down 44th Street, and impatient pedestrians jaywalking.

Stadium Series crew begins preparation for NY games

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- The anticipation already is building for the pair of games that will be hosted at Yankee Stadium on Jan. 26 and 29 as part of the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series. But the countdown toward the doubleheader in the Bronx officially started Wednesday with the arrival of the ice truck responsible for turning the home of the New York Yankees into an outdoor hockey haven.

"[Wednesday] they're building the roadways and the staging around the stadium," said Michael Craig, NHL senior manager of facilities operations. "Starting [Thursday] we'll start laying out our piping and our ice pans, that's the refrigeration that takes place underneath. From that point we'll be filling the system with our refrigerant, building the dasher boards and hopefully making the ice by the 18th. So in the next few days we should be ready to go."
