NHL Live Has a Crosby-tastic Show This Evening

I don’t usually do this, but the NHL sent me the guest list for NHL Live (the NHL Network version) tonight, and it is certainly the show to watch to get you set for the return of Sidney Crosby.

Pittsburgh Penguins GM Ray Shero will appear on the show at 5:30 p.m. ET, while broadcasters Bob McKenzie, Dave Strader, Darren Dreger, Barry Melrose and Marc Crawford will all call into the show to give their take on Crosby’s first game since January 5th. NHL.com senior writer Dan Rosen will be reporting live from Pittsburgh on both NHL Live and NHL On the Fly tonight.

Give the NHL and their television partners a ton of credit, they swooped into action like nothing I’ve ever seen before for this event, and the league’s fans are all the better for it.

    I am on a vacation with my family. We were in Las Vegas and know are in Sedona, Az. There was no Versus in Las Vegas and unfortunately no Versus (NBC Sports Channel) in Sedona to watch Sid Crosby’s first game back. I know the NHL did the right thing resigning with NBC with the attention they receive but not it is tough on the NHL fan base sometimes. Sorry for some venting. Let’s hope the potential of this deal doesn’t take years to realize and the NBC sports channel can make distribution gains very soon.
