NBC to Cover Final Blues Game of the Season, Stanley Cup Playoffs to be Televised Nationally
It's been a pretty good season to be a St. Louis Blues fan. I bet I've watched more hockey this season than I have in years. Not only has the team been winning, but we also had the treat - at least for a few games - of having future Hall of Fame goalie Martin Brodeur on the roster. As the regular season winds down, and we get ready for the playoffs, NBC has released their plans for covering the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and has confirmed that the final regular season game between St. Louis and Minnesota on April 11 will be televised nationally.
The Blues will host the Minnesota Wild at Scottrade Center on Saturday, April 11. That game can be seen on NBC beginning at 2PM. The NBC Sports Live Extra app will provide streaming coverage of the game for desktops, mobile devices, and tablets.
It has also been announced that NBC, NBCSN, USA, CNBC and NHL Network will provide national television coverage of every Stanley Cup Playoff game. According to a press release from NBC, this year is the 10th consecutive season that NBC and NBCSN will combine to cover the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and will feature the most primetime playoff games on NBC (up to eight) since acquiring NHL television rights in 2005.
