Former Boston Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy and the Vegas Golden Knights are headed to the Western Conference Final, and apparently the powers that be at ESPN could care less.
That, NHL rumors, Stanley Cup Playoffs news and more in the latest BHN Daily:
So, let me put this out there now:
I once worked for ESPN, more specifically, ESPN Boston, covering the Boston Bruins primarily, but also the NHL. I’m not going to lie, I still love so many people there, but I pride myself in objectivity. So, when I say this, it’s difficult, and not sour grapes, and it’s surely not a shot at the amazing people that cover our great game for ESPN.
ESPN. …you need to check yourself!
You disgraced the NHL on Sunday night and I can confirm this tweet:
Hearing scuttlebutt from ESPN insiders that NHL asked to move the Vegas-EDM game to 8pm ET.
Hearing NHL asked ESPN to move baseball to ESPN2, but ESPN declined. Same rumor is that ESPN also declined to trade games with TNT.
For now, only a rumor inside ESPN.
