The New York Rangers, New York Islanders and New Jersey Devils will face each other in two games at Yankee Stadium in January as part of the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series.

The Devils will take on the Rangers on January 26 and then the Islanders will play the Rangers on January 29.

"The New York Islanders are honored to take part in the National Hockey League's outdoor stadium series," Islanders general manager Garth Snow said. "Our fan-base is one of the most passionate in the NHL.  The support we consistently receive from our fans was on display during the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs and I expect it to be on an even greater scale when we take on the Rangers."

"Playing hockey outdoors takes the game back to its roots and reminds us all why we laced up our skates as youngsters," said Rangers president and general manager Glen Sather. "We are excited to be able to bring that experience and thrill to our fans and the city of New York."

The Detroit Red Wings will play host to the Toronto Maple Leafs in the annual Winter Classic, scheduled for January 1 at Michigan Stadium on the University of Michigan campus.
