Part of the “Live Every Shift” ad campaign….
Earlier today, Pierre McGuire of NBC and TSN was good enough to share his hockey observations with Paul and myself. We asked him about the upcoming Philadelphia/Pittsburgh game this Sunday at noon EDT on NBC, got some gossip about what goes on “Between the Glass”, and insights into both the Western and Eastern conferences going into the playoffs.
You can download the interview by this mp3 file here, or listen on the player below.
*Our sincere thanks to Pierre McGuire for taking this time with us, and to NBC for arranging the interview.
Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment President and CEO Richard Peddie will be the guest on today’s edition of NHL Hour hosted by Gary Bettman.
The show is on from 4-5 p.m. ET today on XM (Channel 204) and NHL.com. NHL Hour is an interactive talk radio show that is hosted by a rotation of League executives, and co-hosted by XM sports host and former NHL player Bill Clement.

Today at Hockey.com I blogged about the lack of “hard-hitting” interviews, especially during the period intermissions.
Time to try something new…
Stress is starting to consume some of the NHL fans and they must learn to relax.
More at my NHL.com blog today…
ESPN gives us five and a half minutes of highlights from the last week.
A little over 6 minutes of all goals, the goals of the week.
Sometimes I am just left scratching my head. Read about it at my Hockey.com blog today.
I just finished editing a new site, and put it online. It’s a contact list for hockey teams throughout North America, along with the IIHF. It has contact info for all the teams in the NHL, AHL, ECHL, CHL, IHL, SPHL, USHL, NAHL, and the Canadian Junior leagues (OHL, WHL, and QMJHL). I did it because I am always needing an address or a phone number, then I figured it would be a good resource for others, and decided to make it public. Each individual contact page has a link to Google Maps, leading to the individual team’s arenas.
