The Stanley Cup Final switches coasts tonight. The Kings return home up 2-0 in the series. In all likelihood a Devils loss tonight will mean the series is over. In addition to the series switching coasts, it also switches TV networks. Game 3 (as well as Game 4 ) will be broadcast on the NBC Sports Network.
Also on television this evening is Fox Sports Arizona's review of the Coyotes season. Click here for a preview of the show. Both the Stanley Cup Final game and Coyotes Season in Review broadcasts begin at 5 p.m. MST. However, there is good news if you don't have a DVR. The Fox Sports Arizona program is being broadcast again at 10:30 p.m. MST as well.
