Tavares debut(?) to be televised!
The NHL Network-US will pick up CBC's coverage of the Kraft Hockeyville game between the Islanders and Canucks.
Sept. 14 10:30 Islanders vs. Canucks
(Folks in Canada will see the game on CBC, obviously.) The game will re-air at 3pm the following afternoon.
During the regular season, NHL Network coverage is usually blacked out in local markets, but I can't imagine this happening for a pre-season game. The game will be opposite the 2nd-half of the opening Monday-night NFL doubleheader on ESPN (San Diego-Oakland).
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982.
