Game 1 of Flyers-Habs on Versus, CBC, RDS
Two teams putting together remarkable postseason stories will meet Sunday night in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final, and a national television audience will be able to follow along on Versus in the U.S. and CBC and RDS in Canada.

The Philadelphia Flyers host the Montreal Canadiens at the Wachovia Center, with the opening faceoff schedule for shortly after 7 p.m. ET.

The seventh-seeded Flyers just completed only the third comeback in NHL history from a 3-0 series deficit when they rallied to beat the Boston Bruins. They also upset the Atlantic Division-winning New Jersey Devils in the opening round.

The eighth-seeded Canadiens have already dispatched of the Presidents’ Trophy-winning Washington Capitals and the defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins, each time prevailing in a Game 7 on the road. The Habs rallied from a 3-1 series deficit against the Capitals and 3-2 against the Penguins.
Quote of the Day

Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.

— Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock on rookie goaltender Garret Sparks, who made 24 saves in his first NHL start, a 3-0 win vs. Oilers
