NHL Net to Preview the Conference Finals

NEW YORK/TORONTO (May 12, 2011) – NHL Network™ today announced its

coverage plans for the Conference Finals round of the 2011 Stanley Cup®

Playoffs, beginning with a special preview show on Friday, May 13.

NHL Network will host a one-hour NHL On The Fly: Conference Finals

Preview show from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. ET. Host David Amber will mediate an

all-goalie panel with regular contributor Kevin Weekes and special guest

analyst and Chicago Blackhawks netminder Marty Turco, who also will be

joining the NHL On The Fly cast throughout the Conference Finals.

The preview show, which will also be streamed live on NHL.com, will

include special features on top playoff performers, player interviews,

predictions, keys to playoff success and historical moments from the first

two rounds of the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Just as during the first two rounds of the playoffs, NHL Network’s

daily signature show — NHL On The Fly — will be on the air in the evening

to keep audiences up-to-speed on all the news and notes from each

Conference Final game. Each night, NHL On The Fly Pre-Game Show will be

live from 6:00 p.m. until the puck drops on the evening’s game to provide

fans with highlights, player interviews and game previews as the final four

teams drive toward the Stanley Cup Final. NHL On The Fly will also be on

air immediately following the game with game analysis and coverage of

post-game news conferences.

During the course of the Conference Finals, NHL Network also will

provide live coverage from every game, with special daily news updates from

on-site reporters in each NHL market.

Fans can also catch the popular NHL Network program, NHL Live! each

afternoon Monday-Friday from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. ET. The interactive show,

which incorporates fans voices from a social media and phone call

perspective, takes viewers beyond the ice with access to players, coaches

and management while preparing for upcoming games.
