In Chicago, a Blackhawks playoff game is must-see TV. If you can't get tickets to the game, that is. With a 2-1 series lead, the Hawks return to action Friday in Minnesota and Sunday in Chicago. So what does it take to produce a three-hour NHL on NBC Sports broadcast? A lot more than three hours, for one thing. A roster of nearly 50 people chips in to cover the lengthy to-do list. The crew culls the plays of the game, cues replays, creates graphics, compiles stats, talks to the on-ice timeout coordinator about commercials, runs the audio...
