Hockey on Versus

As many of you probably know, game two against the Caps will be on Versus. Versus is the home of the NHL and has extensive coverage of the 2009 Stanley Cup playoffs. Versus has the rights to two games from each series in the second round and most nights there will be a doubleheader. Versus also has exclusive rights to the Conference Finals and will air exclusive coverage of both series. They will also, when feasible, simulcast games from Canadian networks to give viewers bonus playoff coverage. Versus will also air games three and four of the Stanley Cup Final, which is different from other years. Normally Versus would have games one and two and NBC would cover the rest, but this year NBC will cover games one and two as well as five, six, and seven if necessary with Versus holding games three and four.

Versus also has an NHL studio show called Hockey Central every night that they televise a game. They also offer VOD condensed versions of games the morning after the game so you can catch all the highlights again.

You can head over to NHL section over at to see the full schedule along with videos and articles.

Versus is also sponsoring an NHL Tweetup in Pittsburgh on Saturday the 9th. You can check out this page for all the information on attending the event.
