Versus Gets In On The Crosby Act
November 20, 2011 2 Comments
Ken Fang from Fang’s Bites coming over to PTM today to bring you this post.
About an hour after CBC announced it was picking up Sidney Crosby’s NHL season debut for Hockey Night in Canada, Versus says it will do the same. The network was originally slated to carry Boston-Montreal at 7:30 p.m. ET, but with this new development, Versus has adjusted its schedule.
With Sidney Crosby making his return to the Pittsburgh Penguins lineup for the first time since January 5, VERSUS is switching from the Boston Bruins/Montreal Canadiens game scheduled for Monday night to air the New York Islanders/Penguins game at 7 p.m. from the CONSOL Energy Center. Coverage begins at 6:30 p.m. ET with NHL Live after a 30-minute edition of NBC SportsTalk at 6 p.m. ET
COMMENTATORS: The team of Dave Strader (play-by-play announcer) and Pierre McGuire (‘Inside the Glass’ analyst) will call all the action from Pittsburgh.
That will do it.
