    FS Pittsburgh is now ROOT SPORTS, if you didn’t know.

    Why isn’t the Rangers/Caps on Versus………..honestly no one wants to see Phoenix

    Probably because FS Arizona begged the NHL to put the game on Versus so they wouldn’t have to travel to Detroit for one game, as game two is on NBC, anyway.
