The Dallas Stars, in conjunction with NBC, announced today that Dave Strader and Daryl "Razor" Reaugh will call the Dallas Stars vs. Boston Bruins contest on Sunday, Feb. 26. Strader will provide play-by-play, and Reaugh and Brian Boucher will serve as the color analysts for the nationally televised game on NBC. The game is scheduled for an 11:30 a.m. CT puck drop at American Airlines Center.
Strader, who returned to the broadcast booth for the Stars current five-game homestand, continues his fight against cholangiocarcinoma, a fairly rare and aggressive form of cancer. His treatment schedule afforded him the opportunity to travel to Dallas and return to the booth and he called his first game in 283 days last night against Tampa Bay. Following the Stars games vs. Pittsburgh on Feb. 28 and vs. New York Islanders on March 2, he will return to upstate New York to continue his treatment.
For the radio broadcast of the game on Sportsradio 1310 The Ticket, Stars Live Host Josh Bogorad will handle the play-by-play duties with Television Analyst Craig Ludwig providing analysis of the game.
On Sunday against the Bruins, the Stars will host Pevs Protects Day for the American Heart Association. In conjunction with former forward and current Player Development Coordinator Rich Peverley, Pevs Protects Day will raise funds and awareness for the American Heart Association. Peverley suffered a cardiac incident that led to his collapse on the bench in a game against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday, March 10, 2014. His heart condition ultimately led to his retirement from the game of hockey and he now serves as the Stars Player Development Coordinator.
