On The Forecheck: SB Nation Blog Name-Checked On Hockey Broadcast

New, 2 comments

As SB Nation blogs grow in stature and reputation, they're getting name-checked during broadcasts on a regular basis.

SB Nation blogs continue to produce quality content that finds an ever-expanding audience. One of those audiences is other media. So we'd like to take a moment to recognize one of our hockey blogs who ended up being referenced on a hockey game broadcast because of a unique post they do at their site.

On the Forecheck covers the Nashville Predators for SB Nation and during some years they do a Super Schedule post where they calculate the number of miles every team in the NHL will travel that season and the number of back-to-back games they will play. Interesting information in determining how weary a team could get from travel and during what parts of their season.

So the other night during a preseason game between the Penguins and the Blue Jackets, the announcers decided to pass some of that info along to their audience. They were breaking down the impact of realignment and travel burdens.

Nice job On The Forecheck! Congratulations on creating an interesting post that ended up on television.
