NESN Expanding Bruins Coverage for Stanley Cup Final Starting on May 31 With Series Preview

BOSTON — NESN, New England's most watched sports network, will expand its coverage of the Bruins during the Stanley Cup Final to include daily live shows beginning with a special series preview edition of Bruins Face-Off LIVE on Tuesday, May 31 at 5:30 p.m. NESN.com, already the region’s most popular hockey site, will also enhance its Bruins coverage for the Stanley Cup Final with more daily reports, expert opinions, cutting-edge analysis, original videos and other interactive features.

"As NESN’s ratings have shown, New England’s sports fans are supporting the Bruins in record numbers this season while relying on our team of experts since training camp opened in September for the most knowledgeable and in-depth coverage," said Sean McGrail, NESN’s president and CEO.  "With the Bruins now in the Stanley Cup Final we are excited to deliver an unprecedented amount of live coverage with up-to-the minute reports on NESN.com."

NESN’s daily live Bruins programming will consist of pre and post-game coverage before and after every game along with special editions of Bruins Face-Off LIVE airing on the team’s off days.  For Bruins home games, Bruins Face-Off LIVE presented by Hess will continue to originate from NESN’s TD Garden studio.  After each game, Ace Ticket Bruins Overtime LIVE will feature interviews and instant reaction from NESN’s team of hockey analysts.

NESN’s Bruins studio host Kathryn Tappen will be joined by studio analysts Gord Kluzak, Barry Pederson, and play-by-play voice Jack Edwards throughout the series. Bruins game analyst Andy Brickley, rink-side reporter Naoko Funayama and NESN.com beat writer Doug Flynn will travel with the team to deliver in-arena coverage from Vancouver.
