Versus Gets In On The Crosby Act

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.

    Does this mean this game will now be blacked out on Center Ice?

    This is what they should’ve done, good move. But living in NY, this kind of sucks. I was looking forward to watching both of these games tonight. (Since Pens/Isles would’ve been on MSG anyway)… Habs/Bruins is always a good game, no matter what. I have Center Ice, but idk if Bruins/Habs will be on there, or if it’ll be in HD. But we’ll see.

    Is it exclusive to Versus now? I would rather watch the game on Versus, since it’s in HD (I have Verizon)
