You miss watching your Red Wings, we all do. What I would give to see Pavel's dangles, Filppula's pretty face, or Kindl's remarkably easy to stop slapshot.
Well we'll get our chance to keep an eye on our Wings' overseas adventures, as the KHL and ESPN came to a deal yesterday to broadcast a few games on their internet site, ESPN3 (via KHL, Puck Daddy):
The Kontinental Hockey League has reached an agreement with the US sports TV channel ESPN to broadcast games in the 2012/2013 KHL Championship. The games will be shown on the ESPN3 channel in the United States, Territories of the United States, and also in Great Britain….
During the first decade of October, the channel will broadcast five KHL games. The planned schedule includes:
- Dynamo Moscow vs Ak Bars on Oct. 3rd;
- Lev vs SKA on Oct. 6th;
- Slovan vs Dynamo Moscow on Oct. 7th;
- CSKA vs SKA on Oct. 8th;
- Lev vs Dynamo Moscow on Oct. 9th.
I don't know the schedule after that, but Detroit only has Pav playing in the KHL for CSKA Moscow, so we can check him out on the 8th.
If I remember I might make some time to watch, will you?
