Fans looking for their hockey fix this week need look no further than Versus, which has three prime-time games to start the week.
Monday night (8 p.m. ET) features the best goaltender in the Western Conference, Jaroslav Halak
, leading the St. Louis Blues
into the Pepsi Center to face a Colorado Avalanche
team led by dynamic offensive talents Paul Stastny
and Chris Stewart
On Tuesday (7 p.m. ET), the red-hot Philadelphia Flyers
travel to Montreal to face the Canadiens. Backstopped by rookie goalie Sergei Bobrovsky
, Philadelphia went into Monday's game having won eight of its last nine. The Canadiens have their own bedrock in net in Carey Price
, who has cemented the No. 1 goaltender spot and earned the adoration of the fickle Montreal fans.
Wednesday (7 p.m. ET) features an Original 6 clash when the Boston Bruins
visit the New York Rangers
. The Rangers took the first matchup between the teams last month in Boston, and the Bruins will be looking to even things up.
And following each game will be Versus' newest show, NHL Overtime. The new show will debut Monday at 11 p.m. ET, following "Hockey Central," and will feature game highlights, recaps, expert analysis and all the hottest news and topics from the NHL, college, minor leagues and international hockey. The show will include in-studio guests as well as live post-game player interviews from around the NHL. Additionally, special longer-form features on coaches, players and influential names in hockey will also be a regular part of the show.
