Brodeur to start outdoor game for Devils
New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur will start in goal Sunday against the New York Rangers at Yankee Stadium in the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series (12:30 p.m. ET, NBC, CBC).

NEW YORK -- New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur will start in goal Sunday against the New York Rangers at Yankee Stadium in the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series (12:30 p.m. ET, NBC, CBC).

Devils coach Peter DeBoer told CBC’s Cassie Campbell-Pascall that Brodeur would be the starter during a television interview following the team's practice at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.

Brodeur has won two of the three previous meetings against the Rangers this season. He’s 13-10-4 with a 2.36 goals-against average and .905 save percentage in 27 games.

For the 41-year-old future Hall of Fame goaltender it's an opportunity he will cherish since he knows how big the rivalry has become with their Metropolitan Division rival in his 20 seasons with the Devils.

"It's our fans; players come and go but fans stay, teams stay," Brodeur said recently. "I think that's why the rivalry is so special. It's because it means a lot for the people who are rooting for each of the teams regardless if it's bragging rights until the next game or next season.

"Devils fans hate Rangers fans. I'm not sure the Ranger fans hate the Devil fans that much so it's kind of nice to win for them."

Brodeur's next victory against the Rangers will be the 50th of his career. He is 49-30-5 with 15 ties and nine shutouts in 99 regular-season games against the Hudson River rival.

"We've been living in the shadows [of the Rangers] for most of my career," said Brodeur, 41. "Just the fact that team is so old and has so much history and fan base is so broad compared to what we have, but I think the quality of the people following us is tremendous and you see it more as the years goes by."
