Versus is tacking four games to its NHL schedule including two this week as the regular season is coming to an end and the playoff chase is heating up. I like seeing four games a week. I wish Versus did this throughout the regular season instead of just during special times.
VERSUS ADDS FOUR BONUS NHL GAMES TO REGULAR SEASON SCHEDULENEW YORK, N.Y. (March 29, 2010)-VERSUS, the fastest growing sports cable network in the country, will add four bonus NHL games to its schedule as the race to the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs intensifies. The network's first additional game will feature the Pittsburgh Penguins hosting the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday, March 31, at 7:30 p.m. ET. Local blackouts apply so the home team markets will see the Chicago Blackhawks/Minnesota Wild game at 8:00 p.m. ET.
On Thursday, April 1, at 7:00 p.m. ET, VERSUS will televise the Atlanta Thrashers/Washington Capitals match-up. On Tuesday, April 6, following the network's regularly scheduled Capitals/Penguins game, VERSUS will air the Colorado Avalanche/Vancouver Canucks game at 10:00 p.m. ET.
