Yankee and Dodger stadiums (and maybe more) to host NHL outdoor games?

NBCSN/NHLN-US. So ratings will be an issue.
Perhaps, that does seem to be the weak sister of the group. But if they can sell the gate out and even get a pretty good local rating I would think the NHL might consider that a success. Plus you will get some casual people who might tune in to see NHL hocky with palm trees in the near distance, so it may not be a complete disaster ratings wise.
I like that they're doing it smart with the NY games. Three NY area teams, so travel & hotel is not really a huge issue in the wake of the SB. Pretty ingenious if you ask me. The only issue is that there is a good chance that all 3 teams might be pretty mediocre or bad when they play.
