Comcast, the nation’s leading provider of entertainment, information and communications, has once again made its signature On Demand service the place for fans to turn for exclusive Pittsburgh Penguins programming as the team faces off against the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2009 Stanley Cup playoffs.
“Road to the Cup” features the Voice of the Penguins, Mike Lange, and his radio color analyst, Phil Bourque, and is now available at no additional cost to all Comcast digital cable customers just by selecting the “Your Town” category from the On Demand menu and then the “Sports/Pens TV/Playoffs” folders. The first show will recap the Penguins’ late-season surge, preview the team’s first-round series against the Flyers and take a look at the other seven first-round matchups in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
