Friday night's twinbill on Versus will feature a possible elimination game and the latest installment of one of the Stanley Cup Playoffs' budding rivalries.
Starting off the night at 7 p.m. ET, the Boston Bruins attempt to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals as they play Game 4 of their series against the Philadelphia Flyers at Wachovia Center. In addition to Versus in the U.S., coverage can also be found on TSN and RDS in Canada.
Then, at 9:30, the Vancouver Canucks host the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 4 of their Western Conference Semifinal series, which they look to even up at two games apiece. Versus and RDS will join the game in progress after the conclusion of Bruins-Flyers, and the game can also be seen on CBC in Canada.
We've got to find a way to win a game. He's played well in the minors, now he gets his opportunity. We tried [with Jonathan Bernier]. The way I look at it, you get opportunities and you make the most of it. That's what [James Reimer] did. Now another opportunity is here and Sparks ... you gotta grab it. Is he ready? We'll find out.
