NHL Game May Be Played at Yankee Stadium

This is an NHL game I might go to.

“The House that Ruth Built” may be used to stage a hockey event.

Newsday reported on Wednesday that the NHL is looking at the possibility of having the New York Rangers play the New York Islanders in a regular season game at Yankee Stadium.

I love this idea. Playing a pro ice hockey game outdoors would add an interest angle to it, and its not like the temperature inside an NHL arena is warm enough to justify always having it inside. It would be only the second NHL game played outside, and holding it at a historic sports shrine like Yankee Stadium would be a great publicity boost for the game.
