KHL All Star Game Airs Saturday
Thursday January 08th 2009, 11:50 pm

Former Ranger Jaromir Jagr gets to escape the circus in Omsk for a few days this weekend when he heads to Moscow for the inaugural KHL All Star Game, which will be played outdoors in Moscow’s Red Square on Saturday. (And you thought Wrigley Field was an impressive venue for a hockey game.) Jagr will captain a team of players born outside of Russia against a team of Russian stars lead by former NHLer Alexei Yashin. Former Rangers Karel Rachunek, Marcel Hossa, and former Ranger properties Jan Marek and Pavel Brendl, who are tied for the league lead in goals, will join “Team Jagr” in Moscow on Saturday.

The game will be televised in North America by Universal Sports beginning at 8am EST on Saturday morning. Universal Sports is available in the NY/NJ area on Cablevision channel 110, Time Warner channel 162, Comcast channel 249, and Fios channel 464. (Check availability in your area.) The game will also be available for free from the Universal Sports web site.

Update: An “encore presentation” will be aired on Universal Sports at 11pm EST Saturday night for those who can’t bear the thought of rising at 8am on a Saturday morning. In addition, the online feed will be available for viewing on demand after the game.
