Dodger Stadium almost ready for Kings and Ducks Stadium Series Game on Saturday

LOS ANGELES — The surface of the outdoor rink at Dodger Stadium almost has all the bells and whistles. In a few days, it should be ready for some referee whistles.

With all the other ice markings in place, the center-ice logo and other branding logos were about to be painted Monday night for the 2014 Coors Light Stadium Series game, the first regular season West Coast outdoor game in NHL history, on Saturday between the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks.

Dan Craig, the NHL’s Senior Director of Facilities Operations, also said his crew will build another quarter-inch of ice and then another quarter-inch to get to the required 1½ inches by Tuesday night.

Son of GoalCam at Game 5 of Stanley Cup Final

We have the VidOvation GoalCam set and ready for game 5 of the LA Kings vs the NJ Devils at the Prudential Center in Newark NJ. Today might be the end of a long season but there have been many surprises leading to and during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The broadcast production crews and producers refer to our In-net GoalCam as the Son of GoalCam. I guess this means the original over-head GoalCam is the Father.

For starters, the LA Kings barely made the playoffs making an #8 seed. The Kings crushed the #1 seed Vancouver Canucks in 5 games. Then they went on to sweep the St Louis Blues a #2 seed in 4 games. In the third round they beat the Phoenix Coyotes a #3 seed in 5 games. The Kings have beaten the number 1, 2 and 3 seeds in the Wester Conference. The Kings are 12-2 on the road during the playoffs. Will they beat the NJ Devils tonight?

The NJ Devils hardly dominated the league with a #6 seed in the playoffs. New Jersey went 7 games to beat the Florida Panthers a #3 seed in the first round. Then they beat the #5 seed Philadelphia Flyers in 5 games. The worst part is that the Devils beat my home team and #1 seed NY Rangers in 6 games. Unfortunately my hero Henrik Lundqvist could not carry the whole team. The Devils are 3-0 in series ending games during the playoffs.

Now these two teams face each other in game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final. The Devils are at home down 3-1 in the series. I anticipate a long night with some overtime. Watch the game on NBC at 8PM ET.

Otherwise, watch game 7 of the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics on ESPN. Just kidding! Please watch hockey. I have recently been accused of only talking about Hockey, the NHL and the GoalCam. It has been a lot of fun working for the NHL this season. We look forward to many seasons to come.

On My Way to NJ Devils “Because It’s the Cup”

20120525-223329.jpg

Tough loss for the NY Rangers today. Congratulation to the NJ Devils. The better team won. I’ll be rink side for game one with the LA Kings vs NJ Devils at Prudential Center in Newark, NJ on Wednesday in support of the VidOvation In-Net GoalCam. With my Rangers eliminated I’ll jump on the LA Kings and Dustin Brown band wagon.
