2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series NY: Rangers/Devils/Islanders

Alumni look forward to Yankee Stadium games

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- One of the highlights of the 2014 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic was a spirited pair of alumni games at Comerica Park in Detroit. More than 30,000 spectators paid tribute to some of the greatest players ever to compete for the Toronto Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings. Former players for the New York Rangers, New York Islanders and New Jersey Devils won't get to enjoy a similar exhibition, but that doesn't mean they aren't anticipating the upcoming pair of games at Yankee Stadium.

At a private event hosted by the NHL Powered by Reebok Store in Manhattan for York Heating and Air Conditioning, three prominent former players expressed their excitement about the upcoming contests, in which the Rangers will play the Devils on Jan. 26 and then the Islanders on Jan. 29 as part of the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series.

"I know they're excited and enthusiastic. I don't think you can be anything other than that," Islanders great Mike Bossy said of the current Islanders team. "Just after watching every outdoor game that has been played so far, it's kind of cool, and I'm sure they're extremely excited to be a part of it."

Outdoor game inspires friendly rivalry among Rangers

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- When the New York Rangers take the ice at Yankee Stadium on Jan. 26 against the New Jersey Devils and Jan. 29 against the New York Islanders as part of the Coors Light NHL Stadium Series, they'll already have a wealth of experience playing stadium games.

A number of Rangers players competed in the 2012 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, where New York beat the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2.

But one outdoor game in particular gets three Rangers teammates especially riled up. On Feb. 6, 2010, the University of Wisconsin hosted the Camp Randall Hockey Classic, an outdoor double-header in which the Badgers played in front of 55,031 fans at the school's Camp Randall Stadium.

After the UW women's team beat Bemidji State, 6-1, a Wisconsin men's team featuring future Rangers Derek Stepan and Ryan McDonagh faced off against the University of Michigan and another current Ranger, forward Carl Hagelin.

Rangers, Islanders excited for Yankee Stadium game

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- Players on the New York Rangers and New York Islanders admit their respective teams are in dire need of points at the moment. Heading into their game Friday at Madison Square Garden, they sit fifth and eighth, respectively, in the Metropolitan Division.

But as they continue their historic rivalry at Madison Square Garden, it's also impossible to ignore the fact that these two teams are less than six weeks away from playing Jan. 29 at Yankee Stadium as part of the Coors Light NHL Stadium Series.

"It's starting to pick up a little bit," Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh told NHL.com. "It's getting closer. There's a little bit of talk starting to come up. It just seems like every outdoor game seems to get a little bit better. They find a way to kind of create more atmosphere for the fans. I'm expecting big things at Yankee Stadium. The venues putting them on are state-of-the-art buildings and historic buildings. It's pretty exciting."

The New York Islanders on Wednesday unveiled the new jersey they will wear when they take the ice at Yankee Stadium to face the archrival New York Rangers in a Coors Light Stadium Series game on Wednesday, Jan. 29.

The blue sweater features a modern look on the traditional Islanders logo, with the iconic "NY" lettering infused with a chrome border, and four stripes to represent the Stanley Cup championships won by the franchise from 1980-83.

"It's sharp," said captain John Tavares, who recently modeled the jersey. "It's going more for the modern look, which I think is a great idea, especially with so many teams going back to the retro. We're going to look good when we go out there."

Devils' Zajac: Stadium Series should bring playoff feel

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- When the New Jersey Devils and New York Rangers face off at Yankee Stadium on Sunday, Jan. 26 as part of the Coors Light NHL Stadium Series, fans can expect a playoff-like atmosphere on a grand scale.

At least that's how Devils forward Travis Zajac would prefer to label the matchup scheduled for 12:30 p.m. ET (NBC, CBC).

"These are playoff games every time we play against each other and no matter where the game might be," Zajac told NHL.com. "Especially now since we only play them five times a year. They're special games and we're both battling right now to make the playoffs and I assume it'll be that way in January as well."

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Growing up in Herning, Denmark, New York Islanders center Frans Nielsen said it never really got cold enough for him and his friends to skate outdoors. On those rare occasions, he said, it felt like they had won the lottery.

He's holding another winning ticket, with the prize being a date for him and his team with the New York Rangers at Yankee Stadium on Jan. 29, 2014, as part of the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series.

"It's awesome," Nielsen told NHL.com. "It's going to be just like it was the first [Stanley Cup] Playoff game, something you'll always remember. It's going to be special. I was very excited when I heard the news [that they'd be playing outside]. Should be fun."

Isles' Vanek embracing the outdoor game experience

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Thomas Vanek learned very quickly one of the benefits to being traded to the New York Islanders.

It wasn't long after the Oct. 27 trade that sent him from the Buffalo Sabres to New York that his phone started ringing, with ticket requests for the 2014 Coors Light Stadium Series game between the Islanders and New York Rangers at Yankee Stadium on Jan. 29, 2014.

"That was one of the first things when I got traded here," Vanek told NHL.com. "Days after I'm getting texts out of nowhere, you guys are playing outdoors. My ticket list is growing."

The Yankee Stadium game will mark the second time Vanek has taken part in an NHL outdoor game. He was with the Sabres on Jan. 1, 2008 for the inaugural NHL Winter Classic at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Buffalo.

The day featured more than 70,000 fans packed into the home of the Buffalo Bills, and the game had the raucous atmosphere of an NFL Sunday.
