Blues, Wings talk Premiere live today on

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

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 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

It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
