Yankee Stadium, The House That Lundqvist Built?
Today, the NHL officially announced that Yankee Stadium will become the first stadium to host not one, but TWO hockey games during the 2013-14 season. The New York Rangers will host both of their cross-bridge rivals as part of the 2014 NHL Stadium Series.
The first game will come Sunday, January 26, 2014 at 12:30 eastern against the New Jersey Devils. Game two will be Wednesday, January 29th at 7:30 eastern against the New York Islanders.
The Phillies Citizens Bank Park was the last MLB stadium to host an NHL game for the NHL Winter Classic where the New York Rangers beat the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2.
Yankee Stadium isn’t the only ballpark to be featured in the NHL Stadium Series as Dodger Stadium will host the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings on January 25th. Good luck with the potential melting ice!
