NBC Promotes Weekend Coverage

NEW YORK – May, 14, 2010 – The No. 1 seed San Jose Sharks will host the No. 2 seed Chicago Blackhawks in Game 1 of the Western Conference Final this Sunday at 3 p.m. ET on NBC Sports.

Mike “Doc” Emrick (play-by-play), Eddie Olczyk (analyst) and Pierre McGuire (inside-the-glass reporter) call the action . McGuire will pull double duty, hosting NBC’s studio show alongside analyst Mike Milbury.

The Sharks finished the regular season first in the Western Conference with 113 points, but Chicago was only one point behind with 112 and registered more wins (52) than San Jose (51). The Blackhawks won the season series, 3-1. The teams have never met in the playoffs.

MC GUIRE: “There is so much skill and speed involved in this series. It’s going to be a spectacular watch. There’s some serious firepower on both sides. It’s going to be like a come-to-the-skills party. But most of these skills players also play physical. It’s really going to be something special to watch.”

This is San Jose’s first appearance on NBC Sports this season. Chicago is 2-2, including three games that went into overtime.

NBCSPORTS.COM: NBCSPORTS.COM’s “Star-cam” continues in the playoffs. “Star-cam” tracks a player(s) from both teams throughout each of their shifts. Following the game, NBCSPORTS.COM will present bonus material, including “Star-cam” and “Net-cam” and bonus analysis from NBC Sports commentators.

    “This is San Jose’s first appearance on NBC Sports this season. ”

    I love how they don’t want to be honest. This should read:

    “This is San Jose’s first appearance on NBC Sports since May 5, 2007, Sharks @ Red Wings, WCSF Game 5. Since then the Sharks have won every Pacific Division Title, were no less than a 2 seed, the 08-09 President’s Trophy Winner, and this year’s Western Conf regular season best team, but we never thought once about airing them on NBC Sports.”
