Your NBC Hockey Schedule For The 2009-2010 Season

Thursday, August 20, 2009

Well it's actually only the 2010 part of the season, but you get the idea. Here is the schedule for the Sunday afternoon games, and while some of the matchups are between two sets of games, you get somewhat of an idea of the teams involved....

Friday, January 1st - Philadelphia at Boston (1pm)
Sunday, January 17th - Chicago at Detroit or Philadelphia at Washington (12:30pm)
Sunday, January 24th - Pittsburgh at Boston or Philadelphia at Carolina (12:30pm)
Sunday, January 31st - Detroit at Pittsburgh or Tampa Bay at Washington (12:30pm)
Sunday, February 7th - Pittsburgh at Washington or Boston at Montreal (12:30pm)
Sunday, March 7th - Boston at Pittsburgh, Detroit at Chicago or Carolina at Atlanta (12:30pm)
Sunday, March 14th - Philadelphia at NY Rangers, Pittsburgh at Tampa Bay, Washington at Chicago or Colorado at Dallas (12:30pm)
Sunday, March 21st - NY Rangers at Boston or Buffalo at Carolina (12:30pm)
Sunday, April 4th - Detroit at Philadelphia (12:30pm)
Sunday, April 11th - Boston at Washington, NY Rangers at Philadelphia or Detroit at Chicago (TBD)

The NHL Officially Announces Details Of 2010 Winter Classic

Wednesday, July 15, 2009


There are very few annual events that approach the level of coolness that is the NHL's Winter Classic, and the NHL announced all the details of next year's matchup on New Year's Day. Everyone knew it would be at Fenway, and feature the Bruins and Flyers, but it became official today. Here's the release....

The National Hockey League's annual outdoor game will return on New Year’s Day with the Boston Bruins hosting the Philadelphia Flyers at Fenway Park -- home of the Boston Red Sox -- in the 2010 Bridgestone/NHL Winter ClassicTM. The Eastern Conference rivals will face-off at 1 p.m., ET in the classic, which received the SportsBusiness Journal “Sports Event of the Year” award for its inaugural edition in 2008.

“A unique event deserves a unique venue, and we are delighted the Bruins and Flyers will renew their rivalry with the ‘Green Monster’ providing the backdrop,” NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said. “We welcome our fans, our teams, our sponsors and the great city of Boston to this annual celebration of our sport.”

Bridgestone brand will return as the title sponsor, showcasing its status as the Official Tire of the NHL® and the National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) to a broadening viewing audience. Last season’s 2009 Bridgestone/NHL Winter Classic attracted 5.6 million North American TV viewers and gathered more than 750,000 visitors on NHL.com. The 2009 event at Chicago’s Wrigley Field drew 41,818 to the historic ballpark, with demand for tickets exceeding 240,000.

The 2010 Bridgestone/NHL Winter Classic will be the third regular-season outdoor NHL game played in the United States (the Buffalo Sabres hosted the Pittsburgh Penguins at Ralph Wilson Stadium on New Year’s Day 2008, and the Chicago Blackhawks hosted the Detroit Red Wings at Wrigley Field on New Year’s Day last season), and the fourth regular-season outdoor game in League history (the Edmonton Oilers hosted the Montreal Canadiens at Commonwealth Stadium on Nov. 22, 2003).

NBC will provide live broadcast coverage of the game in the U.S. In Canada, CBC and RDS will televise the event live. NHL Radio and SIRIUS XM Radio will provide radio coverage and NHL.com will provide extensive digital video coverage.
I can't reiterate this enough, but the Winter Classic is the perfect pregame to all of the New Year's Day College Football games later that afternoon. The fact that they made it two Eastern rivals, and put it at one of the most famous stadiums in America, is just icing (pun intended) on the cake. I'm still hoping for a Pens-Caps matchup on the National Mall in the future, but next year's contest should be just as fun.

Your Stanley Cup Finals Television Schedule

Thursday, May 28, 2009


So NBC and the NHL have officially moved up the Stanley Cup Finals to this Saturday, and have released the full seven game schedule. There is a little bit of a TBD though for this Sunday, and according to Fang's Bites, it's due to Taylor Swift and the movie "The Last Templar". There is a possibility of the game being moved to Versus, but it's more than likely that NBC will bump one or both programs. Add to that the fact that NBC doesn't want Hockey running into the debut of Conan on the Tonight Show, and it's a huge cluster "f". Here's the schedule....

Saturday, May 30th- at Detroit (NBC/CBC/RDS, 8pm)
Sunday, May 31st- at Detroit (NBC/CBC/RDS, TBD)
Tuesday, June 2nd- at Pittsburgh (VERSUS/CBC/RDS, 8pm)
Thursday, June 4th- at Pittsburgh (VERSUS/CBC/RDS, 8pm)
* Saturday, June 6th- at Detroit (NBC/CBC/RDS, 8pm)
* Tuesday, June 9th- at Pittsburgh (NBC/CBC/RDS, 8pm)
* Friday, June 12th- at Detroit (NBC/CBC/RDS, 8pm)

NHL Considering A Finals Move

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

With both the Red Wings and Pens on the verge of closing out their respective Conference Finals, the NHL is in a bit of a pickle. The current Finals schedule is set to start on Friday, June 5th, and if both teams finish off their respective series, the two wouldn't play for over a week. With that taken into account, the NHL is considering a move up. Via Associated Content....

As it looks now, the Red Wings and Penguins could both wrap up berths in the 2009 Stanley Cup Finals within two days. The Penguins can finish a sweep of the Carolina Hurricanes tonight, with the Red Wings set to close out the Chicago Blackhawks in five tomorrow.

The start date of the 2009 Stanley Cup Finals schedule was set for Friday, June 5, since both the Eastern and Western Conference Finals would not end in a sweep. But if nothing changes in the Stanley Cup Finals schedule, and both the Red Wings and Penguins win their next game, they will not play each other for over a week.

For teams that have a long rest going into the championship series, they face constant, incessant questions about being off too long. The Phillies got this question before the World Series last year, but still handled the Tampa Bay Rays in five.

Both the Red Wings and Penguins could face those questions when they finally start the 2009 Stanley Cup Finals schedule. As usual, the needs of television would get the blame, as NBC and Versus need to set the Stanley Cup Finals dates on specific nights. TV needs are also the reason that the first two games of the 2009 Stanley Cup Finals will take place on back-to-back nights.

But in this case, a week plus layoff for the Red Wings and Penguins may be pushing it. So the NHL and NBC are set to save face, assuming the Red Wings and Penguins do win their next games.
The rumored start day would be this Saturday if both teams win, with the Red Wings hosting Game One, and Game Two would follow on Sunday. It seems like a great idea, and when you consider sweeps week is coming up, and the launch of the new Tonight Show with Conan limits late night NBC placement of games.
