by Staff Writer / Washington Capitals
VERSUS to televise four Capitals games; NBC has option to air three

 
ARLINGTON, VA. – Versus and NBC could broadcast as many as seven Washington Capitals games to a national television audience in 2007-08, the networks announced today.
 
VERSUS, which will broadcast 57 regular-season NHL games, will feature the Capitals on Nov. 26 when Washington plays host to Buffalo, Dec. 17 at Detroit, Jan. 21 at Pittsburgh and March 3 at home vs. Boston.
 
NBC is featuring a new twist to its games this year, as the NHL is offering flexible scheduling for the network’s nine regular-season dates. This year NBC has the option to select what game it will broadcast 13 days prior to the air date. Three Washington home games have been pre-selected to potentially air on NBC: Feb. 10 vs. New York Rangers, March 9 vs. Pittsburgh and March 16 vs. Boston. Every game shown on NBC this season will be in high definition. 
 
In addition to the national broadcasts in the United States, seven Capitals games will be televised nationally in Canada. CBC will televise two Capitals games: Dec. 29 at Ottawa and March 1 against Toronto. TSN will televise five Washington games: Jan. 9 vs. Colorado, Jan. 21 at Pittsburgh, Jan. 23 at Toronto, March 3 vs. Boston and March 5 at Buffalo.
 
Three of the televised games have had their starting times changed. The Dec. 29 game at Ottawa will now begin at 7 p.m. The Jan. 21 game at Pittsburgh and the March 5 game vs. Buffalo will start at 7:30 p.m.
