Versus set to televise a pair of Game 7s
The NHL features a pair of seventh games on Tuesday night, and they'll both be televised for a national audience in what is primed to be a historic doubleheader.
The NHL features a pair of seventh games on Tuesday night, and they'll both be televised for a national audience in what is primed to be a historic doubleheader.

The action gets under way at 7:30 p.m. ET, when the Philadelphia Flyers host the Buffalo Sabres at the Wells Fargo Center. Philadelphia staved off elimination and forced Game 7 when Ville Leino scored in overtime on Sunday afternoon in Buffalo. Brian Boucher, who relieved Michael Leighton after the first period, will get the nod for the Flyers.

The Flyers-Sabres showdown can be seen on Versus in the U.S. and TSN in Canada.

In the nightcap, the Chicago Blackhawks will look to follow in the Flyers' footsteps from a year ago as they face the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Arena. Should the Blackhawks win, they will become only the fourth team in NHL history to win a best-of-seven series after losing the first three games. Philadelphia accomplished the feat against the Boston Bruins in 2010.

That game begins at 10 p.m. ET and can be seen on Versus in the U.S. and both CBC and RDS in Canada..
Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.

— Islanders Hall of Fame defenseman Denis Potvin on former coach Al Arbour, who passed away Friday at the age of 82
