Rush Limbaugh, Bob McCown and lesser radio Gods will all tremble with fear today, as Gary Bettman returns to the airwaves ready to talk with the fans and offer that homespun hockey spin.
The NHL Hour enters its second season on XM and Sirius Satellite radio on Thursday, the program will also be streamed live on NHL.com starting at 4 PM Eastern time, 1 PM in the West.
Like any season debut, the show will feature a heavy hitter of an opening day guest, as Whoppi Goldberg saddles up with Commissioner Bettman to outline her love of the game and perhaps some tidbits about her fellow hosts on the View and any secret hockey stories they may have for future shows.
Audience participation can take place through a telephone call at 1-877-645-6696 or with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
For those looking for some historical moments of the NHL Hour, the programs' past episodes have all been archived for use as a podcast accessible through the NHL.com website.
