Officially announced in May, there will be two outdoor games played at the baseball stadium this season — the first between the Rangers and Devils, is set for Sunday, Jan. 26, at 12:30 p.m. ET.

The second goes three days later, on Jan. 29, between the Rangers and Islanders at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Both games will be part of a huge sports week in the New York area, as Super Bowl XLVIII will be played Feb. 2 at MetLife Stadium.

    Not sure about that. Part of the attraction is seeing something unusual and that generates a price premium. The winter classic tickets here I got several years ago were in the same ballpark as this year’s SCF ticket price. If this starts showing up in a city every couple of years, I doubt the market will bear it especially not in 85 k football stadia outside of Canada. It just becomes another game. That said, every NHL fan should get a chance to see their team play a home game outdoors if they’re willing to pay the freight to do so. A game in more cities will generate a lot of revenue. Probably more than going to the same places again and again.

    I don’t like the baseball stadium setups. I will be watching these two regular season games from home since Stubhub will be selling these tickets from 500-1000+ can’t be fun for that kind of money. Look how far the outfield seats are from the rink. You’ll still spend $500 on them. Just watch from home people! At least football stadiums are more symetrical.

      This. I very much dislike the baseball stadium setups. Many poor poor sightlines. Speaking from the 2 times (1 didn’t involve NHL) they’ve done it at Fenway. Love the outdoor games, but much prefer football stadiums.

    I think outdoor events should be somewhat limited in number to make them special events. However, I do think that each team should be able to participate in at least one, understanding that not all teams can have a home outdoor game (just try doing one in Tampa). I also think that they should be done in a venue where the seats are better located in relation to the ice. Baseball parks don’t fit this “bill”. Football stadiums would be better.
