Deal With Sabres
THRASHERS: In Atlanta, John Manasso reported FSN will broadcast 61 Thrashers games this season, “which will be more evenly spread throughout the season than last year’s front-loaded schedule which almost left the season finale ... not broadcast locally.” The Thrashers will have a “stronger national presence,” as three games will be carried by OLN and two will be on NBC (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 9/2).
DUCKS: The Ducks will have a franchise-high 78 games broadcast locally this season, besting the previous mark of 73 set last season. FSN Prime Ticket will cover 40 games this season, KDOC-Ind will air 30 games. The Ducks’ four road games against the Kings will air on FSN West. Four Ducks games will air nationally: three on OLN and one on NBC (Ducks).
