Today the NHL officially announced the two outdoor games scheduled at Yankee Stadium this season during a press conference at the "House that Ruth Built."
The Rangers will face the Devils on Jan. 26, 2014, at 12:30 p.m., and go up against the Islanders on Jan. 29, 2014, at 7:30 p.m.

The Rangers are expected to have a new alternate jersey for the game.
…í was originally worried about the outdoor games being watered down, but after this press conference I'm ridiculously pumped for these two games. In fact, if possible, I'd like to see the NHL give every team at least one outdoor game per year. While it would kill the specticle that is the Winter Classic I think it would be a huge win for the league.
…and by the way, got to love that the Devils reps are Greene and Salvador. God they're going to suck this year.
Sorry about the comments section being down. Lots of issues with the blog recently and it'll be back shortly.
