Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi said he learned to skate at a young age outdoors growing up in Canada. And while he's had the opportunity to play an outdoor game as an NHLer, he'll have another opportunity — two to be exact — later this season when the Rangers face off against the New Jersey Devils and New York Islanders at Yankee Stadium as part of the NHL's Stadium Series.
After the press conference Thursday morning at Yankee Stadium, Girardi met with reporters to discuss his experience playing outdoors as a kid, playing at Yankee Stadium, the game playing closer to home, playing two games, playing for a new coach and more.
