NBCSN continues its coverage of the 2013-14 campaign tonight when the New Jersey Devils face the New York Rangers at Yankee Stadium at 12:30 p.m. ET. In addition to NBCSN, you can also watch the game online.

The New Jersey Devils and New York Rangers have had some classic battles against each other over the years, forging their rivalry over the years. But the backdrop on Sunday will be Yankee Stadium.

It’s a special place, that’s for sure. It’s just hit me when we got in the dressing room – [there are] a lot of great dressing rooms, but I’ve never seen anything like that,” Devils’ veteran forward Jaromir Jagr told reporters.

“But it’s a very special place, just to play here. And I’m from Czech,so baseball is not very popular. And I can imagine for some guys who love baseball, [what it’s like] just to be here.”

Only adding to this game is what it means in the standings. With a regulation win, the Devils could move into a tie with the Rangers in points with 57, as the fight for second place in the crowded Metropolitan Division continues. On the other hand, the surging Rangers could put a very small distance – three points over the next trailing team – between them and the six teams currently below them in that division.

The Devils so far have owned the rivalry this season, winning the first three games against the Rangers.

Martin Brodeur, who has been the face of the Devils franchise going back to the mid-1990s, will start in goal for New Jersey.

    Nice…game delayed due to glare. Which means game delayed due to WHERE THE SUN USUALLY IS AROUND NOONISH. Idiots.

    Maybe if they raised the dumb porch in right field it would blot out the sun.

    And why is this place so special ? I love historic baseball cathedrals,especially old and renovated yankee stadium across the street. this new yankee staduim is just 5 years old and no more revered than any of the newer stadiums, though it does have great obstructed views in the outfield.
    Still looking forward to the game , sun glare and all .
