The Rangers completed a sweep of the two games they played at Yankee Stadium this week with a 2-1 win over the Islanders in below-freezing temperatures Wednesday night.

Henrik Lundqvist made 30 saves for the Rangers, who defeated the Devils at Yankee Stadium 7-3 on Sunday in the first Stadium Series game.

The game was scoreless until there was 1:16 left in the second period, when rookie Brock Nelson scored the Islanders' only goal.

The Rangers tied the game just 40 seconds later on a goal by Benoit Pouliot, and Daniel Carcillo scored the game-winner for the Rangers a little more than four minutes into the third period.

The temperatures was in the 20s when the puck dropped at 7:45 p.m., and the wind chill was in the single digits.

Many fans who attended said that an outdoor game is an experience they say compares to none other.

"It's like no venue in the world," said one Islander fan. "Outdoor hockey. Old school."

"It's probably the most awesome game I've been to all year," said one Ranger fan. "I mean, I've sat fifth row at MSG. I've done crazy things before at games, but this is probably the greatest experience of my life so far."

"Absolutely remarkable, historical, playing in Babe Ruth's, Derek Jeter's stadium," said another Islander fan. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
