PHT Morning Skate: Favorite ‘Slap Shot’ characters
PHT’s Morning Skate takes a look around the world of hockey to see what’s happening and what we’ll be talking about around the NHL world and beyond.
As you can see in the video above, PHT’s own Jason Brough and Mike Halford discussed their favorite “Slap Shot” characters as NBCSN presents a special tonight: the Kraft Hockeyville game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Tampa Bay Lightning (7 pm ET) followed by a showing of (you guessed it) “Slap Shot” at 10 pm ET. (Both also will be streamed on NBC Sports Live Extra.)
