The Stadium Series is a new concept for the NHL, which has experienced considerable success with the Winter Classic, a traditional New Years Day outdoor game that has occurred in every full NHL season since 2007-08. With this new concept, eight more than usual NHL teams will have a moment in the sun.
The other Stadium Series games are:
New York Rangers vs New York Islanders on January 29th, at Yankee Stadium
The NHL’s Winter Classic will resume where it left off January 1, 2012, with an outdoor game between the Toronto Maple Leafs against the Detroit Red Wings at the Big House in Michigan. And, the Vancouver Canucks will host the Ottawa Senators in the NHL’s 3rd Heritage Classic, taking place on March 2nd at B C Place.
