Greetings from Columbus


COLUMBUS, OH — Oh, hello there.

Greetings from the C-Bus. Brough and I are on location and have already checked out Ohio’s No. 1 hockey bar — R-Bar, conveniently located at Nationwide Arena. (We did this last night, of course, not this morning, because we are professionals and such and such.)

Today it’s media day and the All-Star Fantasy Draft later this evening. As we’ve come to realize in our short time here, there is plenty going on over the next 72 hours, so here’s a quick rundown of all the televised events on NBCSN:

Friday, 7:30 p.m. ET — Fantasy Draft

Hosts Kathryn Tappen and Daren Millard will be joined by Pierre McGuire to break down the selections of Team Toews and Team Foligno.

Saturday, 7 p.m. ET — Skills Competition

Dave Strader (play-by-play), Olczyk, and McGuire provide live commentary of the hardest shots, fastest skaters, and best shootout moves.

Sunday, 5 p.m. ET — 2015 NHL All-Star Game

Doc Emrick, Olczyk and McGuire on the call at Nationwide. Musical guests to include Fall Out Boy, O.A.R. and Locksley.

As for PHT, we’ll have plenty of updates throughout the weekend which may or may not include the consumption of a 24 oz. pretzel. Check back often!
