Comcast to broadcast final game for 'The Professor': Not strictly tech, but for those of us missing hockey, something cool: Comcast will be the exclusive United States broadcast partner for a hockey game scheduled for Dec. 13 in Moscow that will be the farewell game for former NHL star Igor Larionov. The game's format will pit Team Russia against a team of global professional hockey stars from elsewhere, called Team World. Larionov enjoyed a 14-year NHL career, which is highlighted by winning three Stanley Cup Championships with the Detroit Red Wings in 1997, 1998 and 2002. Larionov, 44, will be host of what's billed as his final game.
