VERSUS PR On Bonus Games

NEW YORK, N.Y. (March 29, 2010)-VERSUS, the fastest growing sports cable network in the country, will add four bonus NHL games to its schedule as the race to the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs intensifies.  The network’s first additional game will feature the Pittsburgh Penguins hosting the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday, March 31, at 7:30 p.m. ET.  Local blackouts apply so the home team markets will see the Chicago Blackhawks/Minnesota Wild game at 8:00 p.m. ET.

On Thursday, April 1, at 7:00 p.m. ET, VERSUS will televise the Atlanta Thrashers/Washington Capitals match-up.  On Tuesday, April 6, following the network’s regularly scheduled Capitals/Penguins game, VERSUS will air the Colorado Avalanche/Vancouver Canucks game at 10:00 p.m. ET.  Due to local blackout restrictions the bonus games will not air in the team markets.
