All fans love to watch a good outdoor game. There's something about the atmosphere of playing hockey outside that almost seems natural, and players seem to enjoy it as well.

Today's Stadium Series game has already been incredibly entertaining, as there has been a sick tilt and an absolute slaughter by the Islanders. There was a huge story for the fight, as it showed two guys on totally different sides of their career going at it for a respectable fight.
The fight was super cool, as it was Matt Rempe's first shift in the NHL for the New York Rangers. Rempe got called up on Friday to offer depth after the injury of Blake Wheeler, and is already making an impact in the NHL. He fully held his own against someone as experienced as Matt Martin, as Martin is a man who knows his way around a fight.
Martin has been in the NHL since the 2009-10 season and is coming up on his 1000 games played mark. Martin is known for his ability to fight, and is one who will always inject life into a team through fighting.
This is exactly what happened in this game, as before the fight the Rangers were up 1-0. After this fight the Islanders absolutely put on a clinic against the Rangers, who continue to dominate. The Islanders would pot three in a row in the first period and continue to surge through the game. It's been a very interesting start to the game, and hopefully the conclusion can be just as entertaining for viewers.
