Sport on Tv: pick of the day.

Byline: Graham Woods

NHL Ice Hockey: Play-off preview

Channel 5, 12.25am

THE trouble with ice hockey in America is that the season is ridiculously long, with games every day, and it's impossible to keep up with the twists and turns, writes Graham Woods.

But luckily, the hundreds of games over the last six months have just been a prelude. Now is the time to tune in for the countdown to the Stanley Cup play-offs and the ultimate prize of what is reckoned to be physically the biggest trophy in world sport.

Channel 5's coverage is excellent, tucked away in its early hours of the morning slot. It's worth setting the video just for the input of Todd Macklin, one of the most knowledgable and perceptive pundits around.
