TV TIMEOUT: NHL VP/Integrated Marketing Brian Cull said that several "new hockey-themed ads are expected" for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. In next week's SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL, Terry Lefton reports Enterprise Rent-A-Car is using Blues RW T.J. Oshie in a spot, while Verizon is "expected to have new creative" with Capitals RW Alex Ovechkin. NBC Sports Exec VP/Sales & Marketing Seth Winter said ad sales for this year's playoffs are "light years ahead" of last season.
