Here comes the Preakness
Know this: NBC's hockey coverage will end at 3:30 p.m. even if the game is in overtime. Coverage would then move to Versus. It will also be streamed online at NBCsports.com and NHL.com. Preakness prerace coverage takes precedence even though post time is 5:15 p.m.
NBC believes its three-hour window for the Stars-Red Wings allows for one overtime, if necessary.
I imagine NBC and the NHL will be holding their breath come the third period this afternoon. Should be interesting.
I'll defer to great hockey philosopher Daryl Reaugh:
He sure is. Again."Rugh-Roe, The Peacock is double-booked."
