Hughson’s Second Final Highlights CBC Stanley Cup Coverage

The 2010 Stanley Cup Final promises to be an intense battle between two storied franchises – one a reborn Original Six squad and the other a team that proudly embodies the blue collar physical play of the city it has called home since 1967. CBC’S HOCKEY NIGHT IN CANADA continues a 57-year tradition, bringing Canadians exclusive, comprehensive coverage of the 2010 Stanley Cup Final between Chicago and Philadelphia in High-Definition.

The series begins on Saturday, May 29 at 7:30 p.m. ET, live from United Center with Hockey Tonight, hosted by Ron MacLean. At 8 p.m. ET the puck drops on Game One when the Western Conference Champion Blackhawks face off against the Eastern Conference winning Flyers. Winnipeg born, Jonathan Toews will be looking to lead the Hawks to their first Cup victory since 1961 – the longest drought in the NHL; while Philadelphia hopes to recapture the magic of the hallowed Flyers teams from the 1970’s and hoist Lord Stanley’s Cup for the third time in franchise history.

The best-of-seven final resumes in Chicago on Monday, May 31 at 8 p.m. ET, as veteran Flyers defenceman Chris Pronger, the pride of Dryden, Ont. will look to set the tone against fellow Canadian Olympian Duncan Keith and the Hawks. CBC’S HOCKEY NIGHT IN CANADA then heads to Philadelphia on Wednesday, June 2 with Game Three at 8 p.m. ET, live from Wachovia Center (Please see below for the complete 2010 Stanley Cup Final broadcast schedule).
