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.
