Notes

  • 1979's Challenge Cup replaced the All-Star Game. It was a best of three series between the NHL All-Stars against the Soviet Union national squad. Only the third period of Game 2, which was on a Saturday afternoon, was shown on CBS as part of The CBS Sports Spectacular[11]. The network, the show, and their sponsors had a problem with the rink board advertising that the NHL sold at Madison Square Garden, and refused to allow them to be shown on TV. As a result, CBS' viewers were unable to see the far boards above the yellow kickplate, and could only see players' skates when the play moved to that side of the ice. Games 1 and 3 were shown on the NHL Network, where the advertising was no problem.

  4. ^ It sneaks up every year, similar to the Boston Marathon. The National Hockey League All-Star Game returns tomorrow at 1 p.m. on NBC, the annual network appearance of the sport. Despite the rarity, announcers and production crews will not be strangers to the action. Marv Albert, voice of the Rangers longer than he cares to concede, will handle play-by-play beside veteran analysts John Davidson and Bill Clement. Glenn Adano, former player and rink rat at the basketball-crazed University of Connecticut, will produce the telecast from Chicago.
  5. ^ Sure, NBC has the N.H.L. All-Star Game, but that's not a portent of network interest; it's merely a chance to hear Marv Albert's play-by-play on network TV. NBC may want a piddly weekend package of games, but betting on it to gobble up hockey is like laying even odds on Madonna anchoring the news with Dan Rather

  7. ^ NBC chose him for this year's NHL All-Star Game, over the eight NHL analysts employed by SportsChannel America, which is co-owned by NBC and Cablevision.
  8. ^ In terms of American television, the league continues to have a low profile, with limited national exposure on SportsChannel, a pay-cable company. But the All-Star game in January will be televised on NBC, on the Sunday before the Super Bowl.

  11. ^ Promotion was nil, and U.S. network interest was limited to a quick showing of highlights on the CBS Sports Spectacular—heavily edited to blot out the advertising on the boards.
