Blues Manage To Make The National TV Schedule Eight Times This Year

World, get ready to fall in love with TJ Oshie, if NBC deems the Blues worthy to show one Sunday afternoon. Also, if the NBC crew can stop broadcasting stories about teams not even playing that day - that'd be swell too.

Program those DVRs! If you're out of the STL area, don't have Center Ice/GameCenter Live, or just really love Pierre McGuire, has the NHL got a treat for you. They decided to allow the Blues to be on national TV eight times this year, up from five last. The highlight of the games broadcast?

Sunday, 2/19: St. Louis at Chicago - potentially part two of an NBC double header of the Boston/Minnesota game isn't too exciting. To the best of my knowledge, this'd be the first time since NBC started shoving the same 8 teams down our throats that the Blues could be featured.

Wysh breaks down the winners and losers, and points out that the four US Original Six teams are on TV a total of 22 possible games on NBC featuring those teams. Sure, part of it's because they have a freaking huge media market, but I'm fairly sure that's not the whole picture.

The full NHL TV broadcast schedule can, of course, be found at NHL.com.
