KHL Games on ESPN3 and (now) ESPN2

Posted on October 5, 2012 by


ESPN will start airing the KHL games on October 9, 2012 and not October 6 as previously stated. Not sure why but at least they are also showing the first game on ESPN2. I assume that the others will follow. The game will be at 1:30 est on ESPN3 but also shown in the evening on ESPN2. This will include the KHL All-Star Game.

The first game will be between Zdeno Chara’s Lev and Alex Ovechkin’s Dynamo Moscow. Actually, it looks like there are a lot of Ovechkin games going to be shown. The game will be aired live on ESPN2 with SportsCenter anchor Steve Levy and NHL studio analyst Barry Melrose.

At least six other KHL games will be also shown live both on ESPN2 and ESPN3 with Alex Ovechkin, Evgeny Malkin, Ilya Kovalchuk. No matter if there are no Kings players, I’ll watch anything right about now. Bet you will too!

Here is the ESPN3.com schedule announced today:

Tuesday, Oct. 9: Lev vs. Dynamo Moscow (also airing on ESPN2)

Sunday, Oct. 14: Dynamo Moscow vs. Amur

Tuesday, Oct. 16: Dynamo Moscow vs. Sibir HD

Thursday, Oct. 18: SKA vs. Sibir HD

Monday, Oct. 22: Dynamo Riga vs. Metallurg Mg

Monday, Oct. 29: Dynamo Moscow vs. Dynamo Riga HD

The KHL has also scheduled two regular-season games at the newly opened Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., in January.

 

LA Kings News:

Kopitar is playing in Sweden and Alec Martinez just signed in Finland. All other players are so far unsigned with a team.

 

SB Nation has a great chart (updated daily) of where all the NHL players are playing during the lockout. Here is the Link.

I’ll post the list here now, but go to their site for updated charts and more detailed information. They did a great job!
