Game 1 of Stanley Cup Finals to air on Sun Sports

by Staff Writer / Tampa Bay Lightning
Hockey fans,

You may have heard that WFLA Channel 8 in Tampa Bay is unable to air the first game of the Stanley Cup Finals on Saturday evening due to a conflict with the All Children’s Hospital Telethon, something that Channel 8 has been airing for 26 years now.

Good news, after some prompting by the Lightning and hockey fans throughout Tampa Bay and extensive negotiations last evening and today between the NHL, NBC and Sun Sports, the game has been cleared in the Tampa Bay DMA to air on Sun Sports via all satellite and cable providers in the area. A big thanks goes out to Sun Sports for stepping forward to bring the action into the Tampa Bay area!

For hockey fans living in the state of Florida, but outside of Tampa Bay, you can tune into your local NBC affiliate to watch the game.
