Friday Night Hockey in Ottawa for 2nd Straight Week

Sportsnet has announced that their Friday Night Hockey broadcast will originate from Ottawa for the second consecutive week. This week features game 1 of the OHL semifinal series between Ottawa and Barrie. Here is their press release.

Sportsnet’s Friday Night Hockey drops the puck on Game 1 of the Ontario Hockey League’s Eastern Conference semifinal series as the Ottawa 67’s host the Barrie Colts on Friday, April 6 at 7 p.m. (ET)/4 p.m. (PT) on Sportsnet East, Ontario, West and Pacific.

HOCKEY CENTRAL host Jeff Marek and analyst Damien Cox set the stage for the showdown from the Sportsnet studio, while play-by-play announcer RJ Broadhead, analyst Sam Cosentino and host Rob Faulds bring viewers all of the live playoff action from the Ottawa Civic Centre.

Friday Night Hockey on Sportsnet provides CHL playoff game coverage Friday nights throughout the post-season, culminating with wall-to-wall coverage of the 2012 MasterCard Memorial Cup beginning Friday, May 18 at 7 p.m. ET through to the Championship Final on Sunday, May 27 at 7 p.m. ET. (Full MasterCard Memorial Cup broadcast schedule to be released at a later date).

  1. I really hope that they will feature a game not from the OHL next week. Two weeks in a row covering the same league and Ottawa again?

    From a money sense it is probably easier to do games in Ottawa because you have everything there and your freelance pool would be bigger to staff your game but this is Friday Night Hockey from the CHL.

    The coverage has been good so far but I think it is time to step it up some how as they get closer to the Memorial Cup. Now if they pull off a double-header of CHL hockey in one night then I will be impressed again.

What do you think?
