    Big Ten Network to Debut Pre- and Post-Game Hockey Shows in January

    CHICAGO The Big Ten Network is enhancing its live coverage of men's ice hockey this season with the addition of pregame, intermission and post-game shows in conjunction with its Friday and Saturday telecasts in January, February and March.

    Overall, the network is quadrupling its live men's ice hockey coverage with the studio shows, nine telecasts and more than 20 live streamed games in 2009-10.

    In addition, the network has added a pair of former WCHA stars to its lineup, including former University of Wisconsin captain and current Chicago Blackhawks winger Adam Burish and former Golden Gopher and retired NHL veteran Darby Hendrickson.

    On the Wisconsin thread, we were discussing this a little on Dec 17. Adam Burish is a natural for TV.

    Even though he's a former "GOHER" , I like Hendrickson's work for the goofs and the Wild.

    Holy crap.

    Big Ten Network actually acknowledging and attempting to promote hockey among its member institutions.

    I'm absolutely, legitimately stunned. I was sure they'd funnel more money into their women's gymnastics telecasts long before they'd shed a dime for hockey.

    The reason for the talent in the west? Because MN didn't rely on Canada.

    Network to Debut Five Hockey Episodes of 'The Big Ten's Greatest Games'

    Will include: (live game following)
    Minny's 2002 national championship vs Maine (North Dakota @ Minnesota)
    UM's 1998 national championship vs Boston College (Michigan @ Michigan State)
    Wiscy's 2006 national championship vs Boston College (UM-UW @ Camp Randall)
    MSU's 2007 national championship vs Boston College
    Minny's 2003 national championship vs New Hampshire (Colorado College @ Minnesota)

    I like the fact that they are doing national championships, but how can they leave out the Cold War? That would have been number 1 over anything else for me. FSN broadcast the game, and BTN is partnered with Fox, so it's not like they should have trouble getting the rights to it. Oh well, maybe next year.

    Yeah... how'd they manage to only get games that ESPN would've held the rights for?

    And in other news, the Hockey East Takes It In The Shorts Network plans on showing the same 5 games.

    Clearly they're just trying to get BU viewers to tune in to watch BC lose NC games...
