Rogers Hometown Hockey: Boischatel, Quebec

NHL.com @NHL

CITY in Canada will televise "Rogers Hometown Hockey" on Sunday at 5:30 p.m. ET. The show will be followed by the game between the Vancouver Canucks and New York Islanders. The location this week is Boischatel, Quebec, and the half-hour program will celebrate the city's iconic hockey story.

Among the features airing on the pregame show:

* Hockey fans remember Paul Henderson's game-winning goals in the 1972 Summit Series against the Soviet Union and Sidney Crosby's golden goal in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. But Marie-Philip Poulin scored the tying and winning goals for Canada's women's hockey team against the United States at the 2014 Sochi Olympics -- and many may not yet know her name.

* Quebec Remparts goaltender Zachary Fucale, the Montreal Canadiens' second-round pick (No. 36) in the 2013 NHL Draft, is one of the most successful junior goalies of all time. Fucale has won a Memorial Cup and a World Junior Championship, and he's poised to cap off yet another season with a big win.

* Manon Rheaume made history by becoming the first woman to play in the NHL and her passion for hockey continues to this day. As a proud mother of two aspiring hockey players, Rheaume lives and breathes hockey seven days a week.
