Technically speaking, tonight's game begins, at 7:00 Central time, but puck drop should be at about quarter past. Why am I letting you know this? Just in case a beer run goes late, obviously. You have time. Go grab a 12 pack. Go grab some dinner. Relax.
And then watch the game and un-relax.
The broadcast crew for tonight's NBCSN game will be the same "B-Crew" as Sunday: Kenny Albert on play by play, Joe Micheletti on color, and Brian Boucher between the glass. Their "A-Crew" is covering the Eastern Conference finals matchup between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Tampa Bay Lightning (which is shaping up to be quite the interesting series so far).
The TV broadcast begins at 6:00 with pre-game analysis, in which hopefully the desk crew continues their moderate praise of the Blues and David Backes. If you're not at home, you can access the broadcast using the NBC Sports Live Extra app for your tablet or phone, and if you have your laptop with you, you can access the stream here.
Thanks to the Cardinals game tonight, playoff hockey gets bumped. You can listen to Chaser and Kerbs over on Y98 FM, or streaming on either the Blues' or Y98's website.
