New York Rangers Daily Dose: NBC Releases TV Schedule, Klein


Welcome back to this edition of the New York Rangers Daily Dose.

Here are a few happenings in the world of the NHL:

NBC releases 2015-2016 season schedule of televised hockey games- NHL.COM

It’s the most anticipated time of the offseason. Bigger than any Carl Hagelin trade, Derek Stepan free agent signing, or news of Kevin Hayes being on MSG’s Beginnings next season.

Fans must have been holding their breaths at the announcement by NBC regarding their  television schedule for hockey games this season.  Actually, not really.

It may not be as big as the above mentioned, but it is fun to see when and how many times your favorite team will be on the air. I mean, who doesn’t want Pierre McGuire throwing out college factoids at the viewers and pronouncing everything with a player’s name with a French accent.

But, the NBC network, particularly NBCSN, has been good to the NHL and its fans providing exposure and the opportunity to view out-of-market games. They’ve been able to feed the hunger of hockey fans during the week, and it’s refreshing and a welcome relief to those not in a team’s region, especially the Rangers.

This season’s coverage will start with a double-header of games, beginning with the Rangers and last year’s Stanley Cup Champions Chicago Blackhawks. The Blueshirts will be featured eight times on two of the network’s biggest hockey nights: Wednesday Night Rivalries (six times) and Sunday Night Hockey (three times).

If you wanted to know about Rangers defenseman Kevin Klein on a personal level, then this might be up your avenue.

Mark Malinowski sat down with the blueliner and had him reveal a little bit more about himself. Everything from his earliest memory of hockey to his most embarrassing hockey moment, Klein opens up.

What may have struck me as curious was his response to the question “Funniest (Hockey) Players Encountered”. His response to that was Marc Staal. Never knew him to be funny. We’ve all seen him in the Rangerstown commercial, where he is being one of the bouncers for the parents for their daughter.

This Q and A is actually insightful. It’s refreshing to get to know hockey players outside of their warrior persona on the ice. Plus, I mean, how can you not love this?

I know it’s been used before in our Weekly Wrap Up article, but this is something you have to love!

And that’s it for today. Catch you all later!
