New Jersey Devils star Martin Brodeur believes the ice at the Yankee Stadium was the worst he's played on throughout his 21-year career, reports ESPN.
Brodeur, the goalie of the Devils, wasn't satisfied with the quality of the ice as his side were beaten 7-3 by their opponents.
Things started badly as the game was initially delayed because of the glare from the sun. This meant the match didn't begin until 1.41 pm, which was 1.11 minutes after it was supposed to begin.
And the 41-year-old goalie revealed that conditions were extremely cold and the match was never going to begin on time.
Speaking to reporters, Brodeur said: "It was the worst ice I ever played hockey on.
"When you went on it was worse and worse. It was tough," Brodeur said. "It was so cold out there."
However the Devils star will have to quickly forget about his side's defeat as the team take on the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday.
One thing is for sure, Brodeur will be expecting the ice to be in much better condition at the Scottrade Center as the Devils look to return to winning ways.
