The NHL has announced that information on the league will be available worldwide on the Internet and America On-Line for this year's playoffs, beginning in mid-May. Although the league will largely program its own service, formatting and production assistance will come from Gage Marketing Group. A commercial service "overlay" will be offered through ABC Online on America Online for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Internet users will be able to obtain a variety of information on the league and its teams including stats, interactive sessions with players, coaches, league and team execs, as well as hockey tips.
