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 Gears Up for Rangers/Devils East Finals

It’s beginning to feel like 1994 again.

Now that the New York Rangers have advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals, a familiar foe awaits.

Starting tonight, buzz gets ratcheted up for the Rangers and Devils, who meet for the right to play for Lord Stanley’s Cup.

MSG Network gives fans complete coverage beginning with a one-hour post-game show following each game. The broadcast will be simulcast on MSG, the home of the Rangers, and MSG+, which airs Devils games.

Al Trautwig hosts the show from the MSG studios. He’ll be joined by former Ranger great Brian Leetch and Devils legend Ken Daneyko.

Trautwig will also take viewers into the arena for insight from Rangers play-by-play team of Sam Rosen and Dave Maloney, and the Devils broadcast duo, Steve Cangialosi and Chico Resch.

All games are televised nationally by NBC Sports Network, with the exception of Game 3, which will air Saturday afternoon on NBC.

Eighteen years ago, the Rangers defeated the Devils in seven, intense games, propelling them into the Stanley Cup Finals. The Blueshirts would go on to win their first title since 1940.

WCBS' Lonnie Quinn and Chris Wragge accompanied by their new Emmys.

The best and brightest on the New York TV scene were on display last night at the 55th annual local Emmy Awards. FishbowlNY was on hand for the  four-hour awards ceremony at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square.

The biggest winner was MSG with 14 trophies, while WNBC/Channel 4 led all over-the-air outlets with 11 Emmys.

WCBS/Channel 2 took home the top prize of Best Evening Newscast–Over 35 Minutes–for its Hurricane Irene Aftermath. Anchors Maurice DuBois and Kristine Johnson were not there to accept their statuettes, but weathercaster Lonnie Quinn was in attendance.

Quinn already was selected Best On-Camera Weather Anchor, and colleague Chris Wragge was back at the podium as Best News Anchor. A one-time personal trainer, Wragge rushed back to Manhattan after competing in a Miami triathlon earlier in the day.
