BREAKING: NHL Net To Air Game 6 of Bruins/Canadiens Live Tonight

Just put out there by Michael DiLorenzo of the NHL on Twitter. If there’s a press release, we’ll post it. They will apparently be using CBC’s feed.

Great move by the leauge.

UPDATE: From the NHL:

NEW YORK (April 26, 2011) – NHL Network U.S. will telecast the highly-anticipated Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series between the Boston Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens at 7:00 p.m. ET tonight from the Bell Centre.*

The Canadiens are attempting to rally from a 3-2 series deficit for the third time in their past four playoff series while the Bruins look for an unprecedented third consecutive victory at Montreal in one playoff series to close it out. A Boston win would mark the club’s first best-of-seven series win after losing the first two games.

Between periods, the NHL Network crew will provide analysis from the NHL On The Fly desk while also checking in on the other two games tonight — deciding seventh games in the Philadelphia-Buffalo and Vancouver-Chicago series.

For both U.S. and Canadian audiences, live programming on the NHL Network each weekday begins with the new NHL® Live™, now at 4 p.m. ET, followed by NHL On The Fly Pre-Game at 6 p.m. ET and NHL On the Fly immediately following. With more content that fans crave, this schedule of daily live programming will feature the use of current and former NHL players as guest analysts and provide on-site coverage from arena via webcams, team cameras and content from local television rightsholders.

*Local blackout restrictions apply. Locally in Boston, viewers will be able to see the game on NESN. The game is available in Canada on CBC and RDS. All broadcasts are available in HD.

    Great move by the NHL!!

    This was a no brainer! My question is why they did not announce this yesterday. I am glad they are doing it but, with your main Cable network showing two games and there three on the docket…you are the NHL network! Seems like an easy decision. Not trying to be negative but, saying that it is pretty simple.

    This is not a great move when you are trying to set recordings the night before. I think it’s good the NHL Network is showing the game, but a little notice would have been nice.

      Some people will really find anything to complain about, won’t they?

        I live in USA and don’t get NHL netowrk on my cable system. Is there a free live streaming for me to watch Boston-Montreal tonight on the internet?

    Teach me not to check this thread until the third period. I’m sorry I missed most of the CBC feed of the Habs Bruins game.

    I wonder what brought this about? Nice move on the part of the NH
