Rangers beat Devils at Yankee Stadium

Too much sun forced the boys of winter to wait to play at the ballpark in the Bronx. Once clouds filled the skies over Yankee Stadium and snow began to fall - hockey weather for sure - Henrik Lundqvist and the New York Rangers got the best of the New Jersey Devils.

Rick Nash scored for the fifth straight game during New York’s four-goal middle period, and the Rangers rallied for a 7-3 victory over the Devils on Sunday.

Sun reflecting off the ice delayed the start of the first hockey game at Yankee Stadium for about an hour.

The wait was expected to be longer, so Lundqvist took a nap. Cloud cover took care of that problem more quickly than expected.

Suddenly the All-Star goalie was awakened and told warm-ups would take place in 30 minutes.

He put on his pinstripe pads, but still looked groggy in the first period when New Jersey took a 3-1 lead.

Devils counterpart Martin Brodeur had no such luck. He allowed six goals on 21 shots and was replaced by Cory Schneider at the start of the third.
