Hockey Night In Canada has announced that they will re-broadcast some hockey games of old. The feeling is that fans will want to watch some games that are the most memorable. Fans will get to choose which games they want to see.

Here is parts of the article:

“For Canadians, Saturday night is always Hockey Night in Canada. While we continue to hope for a timely resolution to the lockout, we want to ensure that fans across the country can still watch the game they love,” Julie Bristow, Executive Director, Studio and Unscripted Programming, English Service, CBC, said in a news release. “Not only does Hockey Night in Canada: Your Pick give fans the chance to choose which games we broadcast, it also provides generations of fans the chance to experience some of the most memorable games ever played, again or for the first time.”

Here are the five choices for Oct. 13:

May 10, 1979: Boston vs Montreal – The infamous “too-many-men-on-the-ice” playoff game. Behind the Bruins bench: Don Cherry.

Oct. 8, 1992: Montreal vs Ottawa – The Senators’ second coming. Ottawa returns to the NHL, debuting against the Habs.

May 25, 1994: NY Rangers vs New Jersey – Mark Messier guarantees a playofff win, then delivers for the Blueshirts.

Dec. 27, 2000: Toronto vs Pittsburgh – The Magnificent One’s triumphant return. Mario Lemieux comes back from a three-year retirement and dominates.

May 1, 1993: Toronto vs Detroit – Nikolai Borschevsky scores a Game 7 overtime winner. Leafs knock off the Red Wings.

A new set of five games will be posted each week. Voting is now open at CBCSports.ca/YourPick for the Oct. 13 broadcast. The next set of five games will be posted on Tuesday, Oct. 9, at which point fans can begin casting their votes for the Oct. 20 broadcast."

Bold is mine.

Great news IMO. I'll be watching for sure, TSN has done a couple but they have been international games. I was actually thinking last night while watching the 05 world junior final if CBC would take part and it looks like they have decided to do so.

Also,,,,,:

"At Sportsnet, owned by Rogers Communications Inc., that means a steady stream of American Hockey League games on Saturday nights. TSN, owned by BCE Inc.’s Bell Media, plans to stick to its original plans to air live events on Saturday nights (most of them unrelated to hockey)."

:)

I wonder what RDS will do?

Hope it's not re-runs of L'antichambres.

had a lifetime of hearing Bisonette asking why Latendresse was not on the first line. <_<

In lieu of the Habs season start on October 11, RDS will broadcast the "Tournée des Joueurs" game that will be played in Quebec City. Markov who played in the 1st game of that charity tout left to go play in Russia but there are plenty of Habs in that group: Desharnais, Eller, Armstrong (who tweets during games :lol: ) , Prust, Gionta, Bouillon, Gorges, Moen and Price.

It's a good plan, at least they didn't go with "Movie Night in Canada" again.

However, I wish they'd just pick great games instead of going with voting.

If they did that, I think they would cater to the T.O. crowd, rather than trying to even it up by showing the other teams games.
