NEW YORK (AP) - The NHL has limited its outdoor games to one, maybe two, a year since it first began playing them 10 years ago.

In January, that's set to change. There will be four games that month, and two more in March. To the rest of North America, the events could begin to seem ordinary. For fans, the league is confident they'll remain a strong draw.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman says ``we can't do enough of them'' and in 2014 that will be put to the test with six outdoor games.

The week before the Super Bowl is played in New Jersey, the Rangers will play their two local rivals at Yankee Stadium. On Sunday, Jan. 26 they'll play an afternoon game against the New Jersey Devils. Then on Jan. 29, it's a night game against the Islanders.
