MSG Networks, NHL Ready to Drop the Puck on Abbreviated Season

Finally! The NHL ended its lockout that came perilously close to canceling the entire season. Instead, the NHL slashed the schedule nearly in half, much like the NBA was forced to do in 2011.

The shortened schedule gets started this weekend as MSG Network once again is home to the Rangers, Islanders, and Devils.

The Rangers open the 48-game regular season at the Bruins Saturday night. MSG Network covers 41 of the Blueshirts’ matchups. Sam Rosen and Joe Micheletti return to the booth. For Rosen, it is season number 29 with the Rangers. Al Trautwig is back as studio host for all Rangers games at MSG, while Bill Pidto handles the away games.

MSG Networks will broadcast 46 of the 48 Islanders games in 2013. It starts with the Isles hosting the Devils Saturday night. Howie Rose is back behind the mic for an 18th season as play-by-play voice. Butch Goring is beginning his third season as analyst.

As for the Devils, 41 games are featured on MSG. Steve Cangialosi is back for his second season as lead announcer. He is joined by Glenn “Chico” Resch, who drops the puck on his 17th season in the Devils’ broadcast booth.

MSG Network to Debut NHL Season-Long Series

The NHL season is up the air. A lock out is greeting fans anticipating preseason play. With no end in sight, MSG Network is taking steps to ensure viewers don’t have to live without NHL programming.

MSG is launching a new series, The Essential Games, a “Best of” look back at Rangers and Devils games from last season. It premiers the first Rangers episode Monday at 8 p.m. The initial Devils’ installment is October 13.

The NHL “Plan B” will be shown throughout the entire 2012-13 season, whether or not games are played. It’s a 12-part retrospective for each team.

The series includes both teams’ first round matchups from the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

In addition, there will be eight episodes of Islanders Best of 2011-12. Host Bill Pidto, analysts Butch Goring and Pat Flatley will review top games of the season. It debuts in October on MSG+.
