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

We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
