Yankee Stadium to host Rangers, Devils, Islanders

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Yankee Stadium will host two outdoor regular-season hockey games in January 2014, the National Hockey League announced.

The New York Rangers will play the New Jersey Devils, Sunday, January 26. Then the Rangers will take on the New York Islanders, Wednesday, January 29.

"The innovative nature of the Stadium Series affords the opportunity to have all three NHL teams in the New York-New Jersey metropolitan area play, outdoors, at one of the most-celebrated stadiums in the world," Commissioner Gary Bettman said. "We'll be able to create a multi-faceted, multi-day experience for our fans, and we thank the teams, Coors Light, the New York Yankees and Yankee Stadium for their support of this memorable NHL event."

The new Yankee Stadium has hosted several non-baseball sporting events since it opened in 2009, including soccer, college football, and boxing.

"We have long thought that Yankee Stadium would be a great venue for outdoor hockey," said Lonn Trost, the COO of the Yankees. "Hosting two of the NHL's classic rivalries at Yankee Stadium will be a great kickoff for the worldwide sporting events in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area scheduled in early 2014."

These games are among several hockey games to be played at outdoor stadiums in 2014. Toronto Maple Leafs play the Detroit Red Wings at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor on January 1, the Anaheim Ducks skate against the Los Angeles Kings at Dodger Stadium in L.A. on January 25, and the Chicago Blackhawks host the Pittsburgh Penguins at Soldier Field in Chicago on March 1. A game between the Ottawa Senators and the Vancouver Canucks at BC Place in Vancouver is also in the works.

    If an iced coffee from Dunkin' Donuts is part of your afternoon routine, expect a nudge to buy a cookie or doughnut you didn't plan on. Dunkin' Brands CEO Nigel Travis said in a phone interview Thursday that the company is pushing to get its cashiers to "upsell" to afternoon customers. It's part of an effort to increase sales after stores have emptied out after the morning rush.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
