The 2014 NHL Stadium Series (branded the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series) were a series of four outdoor regular season National Hockey League games. This series is distinct from the NHL Winter Classic and NHL Heritage Classic outdoor games. The Stadium Series games consist of: the Los Angeles Kings versus the Anaheim Ducks at Dodger Stadium on January 25, 2014;[1] the New Jersey Devils versus the New York Rangers at Yankee Stadium on January 26;[2] the New York Islanders versus the Rangers at Yankee Stadium on January 29;[2] and the Pittsburgh Penguins versus the Chicago Blackhawks at Soldier Field on March 1, 2014.[3]

The Stadium Series is in between two other outdoor games; the Detroit Red Wings hosting the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2014 NHL Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Michigan on January 1, 2014, and the Vancouver Canucks hosting the Ottawa Senators in the 2014 Heritage Classic at BC Place on March 2. The New York Rangers, after the conclusion of their two Stadium Series games, will have played four outdoor games, the most of any NHL team, having previously participated in the 2012 NHL Winter Classic and the 1991 exhibition game in Las Vegas.

Yankee Stadium games[edit]

The second and third Stadium Series games were played at Yankee Stadium, when the Rangers face the Devils and the Islanders on January 26 and 29, 2014, respectively. The Rangers would be the designated visiting team in both games, as they cannot receive income from venues outside of their home arena as the home team.[5]

January 26[edit]

The second game of the 2014 NHL Stadium Series took place on January 26, 2014, and was part one of a doubleheader at Yankee Stadium in New York City, featuring the New Jersey Devils and the New York Rangers.

Team rosters[edit]

Uniforms[edit]

Each team wore specially-designed uniforms for the event, except for the Devils, who wore throwback uniforms in the team's original red and green color scheme. The Islanders unveiled their Stadium Series jersey on November 27, 2013.[6] The Ducks and Kings jointly unveiled their Stadium Series jerseys on December 3.[7] The Penguins unveiled their Stadium Series jersey on December 13.[8] The Blackhawks and Rangers unveiled their Stadium Series jerseys on December 20.[9][10] Penguins goalie Marc-André Fleury wore a Pittsburgh Steelers inspired goalie mask for the Penguins-Blackhawks game.[11]

Reality television series[edit]

The Stadium Series is the basis for a new seven-part documentary called NHL Revealed: A Season Like No Other, premiering January 22, 2014, on the NBC Sports Network, and debuting in Canada the next day on CBC. The series is meant to differ from the pre-existing HBO 24/7: Road to the NHL Winter Classic with an added focus on star players' preparations for the 2014 Olympic Tournament in Sochi, Russia, of which NBCSN and CBC were major broadcasters.
