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."
