NBC Sports Network to Bring You the Return of Sidney Crosby, Again (UPDATED: It’s Official Now)
March 13, 2012 6 Comments
Waiting on confirmation from NBC on this, but NHL Network billed Thursday night’s Penguins-Rangers game, which will see Sidney Crosby’s second return this season as “Live on NBCSN at 7 p.m. ET”, so there’s no reason not to trust that. Still, there will likely be more details to come about this, including talent, plus whether or not a Canadian network will pick up the game. TSN seems most likely, since CBC is airing a Montreal-Ottawa game on Friday night.
Crosby has been out of action since December 5th. He returned to American and Canadian national TV audiences with a game on CBC and VERSUS November 21st.
UPDATE: NBC Sports Network has confirmed it via Twitter. A total of 10 games (pro and college) will air on NBC and NBC Sports Network this week.
