STAMFORD, Conn. – April 15, 2014 – On the strength of the inaugural NHL Stadium Series, the return of the NHL Winter Classic, and the second season of Wednesday Night Rivalry, the 2013-14 NHL regular season set a full-season viewership record for NBCSN, and is expected to do the same for NBC when final figures become available later this week, according to The Nielsen Company.
Ron MacLean and Don Cherry discussed two main topics- Situations in both Vancouver and Toronto.
The trio from HNIC, Healy, MacLean and Friedman discussed the situation in Vancouver (GM, coach).
Toronto talk was next, what will Brendan Shanahan do with Dave Nonis and the coaching situation.
Some Nashville talk was the final topic and there was some talk of David Poile moving to a different position with the Predators but Poile shot that down.
The Inside Hockey segment tonight on CBC was a feature with Elliotte Friedman on Dominic Moore reflecting on his life with his now deceased wife Katie Moore.

Devils television color analyst Glenn “Chico” Resch announced during tonight’s telecast on MSG Plus that he will be retiring at the end of this season....
Resch, 65, spoke before tonight’s game about the reasons for him deciding to retire now.
“It’s 18 years and a couple of things,” Resch said.
One reason was so his wife, Diane, could be closer to her sister at home in Minnesota.
“And, then, you know, I guess I probably don’t want to overstay my welcome,” Resch said. “I do appreciate my legacy, but I also know there’s a whole younger generation. They didn’t know me. They can kind of identify when their dad tells them. I think a more current player – and the Devils certainly have won enough of those who have won championships – would probably be a little more pertinent to the broadcast. That was kind of what I was thinking. It would probably make the broadcast a little better. I think it would make it more current, more recent stories.”

Funding shortfalls and revenue losses have forced CBC/Radio-Canada to cut $130 million from its budget this year, a move that will eliminate 657 jobs over the next two years and take the network out of competing for the rights to broadcast professional sports, the public broadcaster announced on Thursday.
CBC said it could no longer compete against private broadcasters that have specialty sports channels and multiple media platforms. The result will mean fewer sporting events will be covered, including amateur sports. But the CBC will still compete for sporting events of national significance, like the Olympics.
After the Toronto Maple Leafs lost to the Winnipeg Jets last night, Don Cherry and Ron MacLean talked Toronto and their fans and little on the Canadiens too.
