Blues, Wings talk Premiere live today on NHL.com

Wednesday, 09.23.2009 / 11:07 AM / 2009 Compuware NHL Premiere

NHL.com

The Detroit Red Wings and St. Louis Blues will be featured on NHL media conference calls today. St. Louis coach Andy Murray will be available at 1:30 p.m. ET, followed by Blues forward Patrik Berglund at 1:45 p.m., Red Wings coach Mike Babcock at 2 p.m. and Red Wings defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom at 2:15 p.m.

The calls will be streamed live on NHL.com beginning at 1:30 p.m.

The Red Wings and Blues will open their regular-season schedules Oct. 2 and 3 at Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm in the two-game 2009 Compuware NHL Premiere-Stockholm. The series is a homecoming for Lidstrom and Berglund, both natives of Vasteras, Sweden. Lidstrom will be starting his 18th NHL season, all with the Red Wings, and needs three points to reach 1,000 for his career. Berglund earned All-Rookie Team honors in 2008-09 after recording 47 points (21-26) and leading the Blues in plus-minus (plus-19).
Quote of the Day

I think the thing about him, No. 1, he's a competitive guy. We have no issues as far as him fitting in here with this group. No question he's going to be hungry. I think whenever you look at your back end, it's a mix-type thing, and I think [there are] things he can bring to us. He's very mobile, and even though he's not big (6 feet, 201 pounds), he certainly competes. He's a smart player.
