VIRTUAL HOCKEY SEASON TO AIR ON G4TECHTV

All 1,230 Regular Season Video Games To Be Played Starting October 13

LOS ANGELES, CA, September 21, 2004 - The NHL lock out may have postponed the 2004-2005 season, but disappointed hockey fans can still watch the puck drop in more than 50 million U.S. and Canadian homes when the defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning face off against the Philadelphia Flyers in the season opener of the video game NHL season on G4techTV. The hard-hitting action begins with highlights, scores and stats, airing daily on the network's sports program "Sweat," premiering October 13 at 10:00 PM ET/7:00 PM PT. G4techTV is the only 24-hour television network devoted to games, gear, gadgets and gigabytes.


Judging by the image used in the press release, the games will be simulated using ESPN NHL 2K5 ... Kudos to G4TechTV for the idea; I'm not sure how successful it will actually be, but an interesting idea nonetheless.

Actually, it makes me sad about how much I miss the old TechTV as compared to this new hybrid aimed at 16 year olds...

And even in a fake season, my Leafs will STILL find a way to choke in the playoffs. :)

Actually, when G4 did this last year (and Tampa Bay ended up winning, though they played the Red Wings in the finals), the Rangers actually made the playoffs.
