Boivin, Laviolette to appear on 'NHL Hour'

NHL.com @NHL
NEW YORKMontreal Canadiens president Pierre Boivin and Philadelphia Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette are today's guests on NHL Hour With Commissioner Gary Bettman on NHL.com and SIRIUS XM Radio at 6 p.m. ET.

Wednesday's decisive win over the defending Stanley Cup champions in Pittsburgh brings the Canadiens Game 7 record to a perfect 2-0 this post-season.  The Canadiens made history in the Conference quarterfinals by becoming the first #8 seed to win a playoff series in which it trailed three games to one, taking down the top-ranked Washington Capitals in a seven-game thriller.

The Flyers will attempt to complete the monumental comeback that has been achieved just twice in NHL history -- to win a best-of-seven series after losing the first three games. The Toronto Maple Leafs overcame an 0-3 deficit to defeat the Detroit Red Wings in the 1942 Stanley Cup Final and the New York Islanders did the same against the Pittsburgh Penguins in a 1975 quarter-final series.

Montreal will play either the Boston Bruins or Philadelphia Flyers in the Eastern Conference Final slated to begin this weekend.

NHL Hour with Commissioner Gary Bettman broadcasts live on Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. ET on NHL Home Ice (XM Channel 204 and on SIRIUS Channel 208 as part of the "Best of XM" programming package) and NHL.com. The show will re-air on SIRIUS XM Radio, with archived shows available for download via podcast on NHL.com.
