MSG Plus With Big Plans to Annoy Devils Fans with Islander Telecast

Hey, it’s been a while since we had something from Neil Best. ¬†Here’s his inside info on MSG Plus’ Devils-Islanders telecast:

MSG Plus was not originally scheduled to televise Wednesday night’s Devils at Islanders practice game, but the channel – which, like Newsday, is owned by Cablevision – has added it to show the home debut of John Tavares.

The festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. with a season preview show that includes an interview of Tavares conducted in Saskatoon by Billy Jaffe.

During the game itself, MSG Plus will have a camera on Tavares and will offer on-screen graphics that alert viewers to his presence on the ice.

As a Devil fan, I can’t imagine having less fun.
