NEW YORK – The National Hockey League will provide multiple platforms where fans in the U.S. and Canada will be able to access Game 7 of the Anaheim Ducks-Detroit Red Wings 2009 Stanley Cup Playoff Conference Semifinal series and Game 7 of the Carolina Hurricanes-Boston Bruins 2009 Stanley Cup Playoff Conference Semifinal series on Thursday night.

Anaheim Ducks at Detroit Red Wings Game 7 – Thursday, May 14 at 7pm ET

In the U.S., VERSUS will televise the Ducks-Red Wings game as a national game to fans outside of the Detroit and Anaheim markets as previously announced.  Fans in Detroit will be able to watch the game on Fox Sports Detroit.  Fans in the Anaheim market will be able to watch the game on Prime Ticket.

In Canada, the Ducks-Red Wings Game 7 will be televised live nationally on CBC and RDS at 7 p.m. ET.  This is a network change from previous schedule announcements.  The exchange of games between TSN and CBC successfully resolves a programming conflict on Thursday night, while still providing fans with complete national coverage of both deciding games.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
