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

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.


Hiller makes statement by shutting out Kings

Shawn P. Roarke - NHL.com Senior Managing Editor

LOS ANGELESAnaheim Ducks goaltender Jonas Hiller knew he had to make a statement early in the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game at Dodger Stadium

In his previous start, four days earlier, Hiller was pulled in the second period after allowing three goals on 11 shots to the Winnipeg Jets. He knew people – his coach, Bruce Boudreau, his teammates, the Los Angeles Kings and the fans that packed the iconic baseball stadium – were wondering how Hiller would respond.


Sunday Long Read: Messier helps Ice Center in NYC

Sunday, 01.26.2014 / 3:00 AM / Sunday Long Read

Davis Harper - NHL.com Staff Writer

On Dec. 10, 2013, the New York City Council approved plans for the Kingsbridge National Ice Center (KNIC) to occupy the Kingsbridge Armory space in the Bronx. The complex, as proposed, will be, upon completion in 2017, the world's largest indoor ice center. The nearly unanimous vote capped three years of efforts by KNIC Partners, led by Kevin Parker, former global head of asset management at Deutsche Bank, and CEO Mark Messier. The success of the venture, the "alignment of the planets and stars" as Parker calls it, was the culmination of thousands of hours of research and planning. It also involved a healthy dose of community cooperation and, curiously, a bus trip to Philadelphia.

Kevin Parker had an ice problem.

A hockey dad living in the middle of New York City, Parker's two boys, then 8 and 10, had graduated from Pee Wee hockey and were in search of a stiffer challenge. So the Parkers searched, and searched, eventually only finding competitive hockey some 45 miles from their home, traveling to Mennen Arena in Morristown, N.J., and Stamford Twin Rinks in Stamford, Conn. The shorter of those two trips, to Stanford, is 34 miles from midtown Manhattan.

"That just made the situation seem even crazier to me, that if you love hockey and want to play hockey growing up in New York City, you have to travel 35 or 45 miles to go play," Parker said. "So I asked the question: 'Why are there no ice sports? No ice surfaces in New York City?'"

It's a common question among hockey families, school programs and city leagues, and especially pertinent this week. How, in a city that will host two 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series games featuring the three metro-area NHL teams during the next week, can there be almost no year-round ice to be found?


Lovejoy: L.A. crowd goes 'nuts' for hockey

Ben Lovejoy - Special to NHL.com

Anaheim Ducks defenseman Ben Lovejoy loved everything about the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game Saturday night at Dodger Stadium, especially because his Ducks took a 3-0 decision against the Los Angeles Kings. It is the second time in 48 hours Anaheim has beaten its fiercest rival.

In the third and final installment of his blog for NHL.com, Lovejoy talks about the atmosphere of the game, his role in one of the game's defining moments -- the penalty shot by Anze Kopitar -- and what his lasting memories will be.

LOS ANGELES -- That was the coolest thing I have ever done playing hockey. That was such a spectacular night for the Ducks, for the Kings, for the NHL. The crowd was so impressive out there. That game means so much to hockey in this area and it was so cool to be a part of it - and to win.

I remember who has won every outdoor game the NHL has had so far. It's a focal point for the League. I will remember the atmosphere here, but the taste in my mouth would have been way worse if we had lost that game.


Muzzin: Outdoor experience 'awesome' despite loss

Jake Muzzin - Special to NHL.com

Los Angeles Kings defenseman Jake Muzzin enjoyed everything about the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game between the Kings and Anaheim Ducks at Dodger Stadium on Saturday, except the outcome.

In the third and final installment of his blog for NHL.com, Muzzin talks about the atmosphere of the game and the frustration of losing to the Kings' archrival for the second time in three days.

LOS ANGELES -- The loss hurts, but the experience Saturday night at Dodger Stadium was simply awesome.

Not too many people can say they were at an outdoor game in California, let alone that they got to play in one. It was really cool. I'm really fortunate to be a part of it.

The atmosphere was amazing and the fans were really loud. I didn't think it would be that loud because typically we're used to fans being right on top of us, right on the glass. But with the music and the fans and the yelling, it was pretty loud.

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.
