2015 Stanley Cup Final on CBC, NBC, TVA Sports, OMNI

Better late than never, here are all the deets for the 2015 Stanley Cup Final.

CBC (read: Sportsnet) will have comprehensive coverage of all seven games, TVA Sports will have full coverage for French-language viewers, and five of the seven games will be available on NBC for those who have had enough of Sportsnet and Rogers.

Here is the schedule. All times are Eastern.

Wed., June 3 — at Tampa Bay, 8pm
Sat., June 6 — at Tampa Bay, 7pm
Mon., June 8 — at Chicago, 8pm
Wed., June 10 — at Chicago, 8pm
Sat., June 13 — at Tampa Bay, 7:30pm
Mon., June 15 — at Chicago, 8pm
Wed., June 17 — at Tampa Bay, 8pm

Sportsnet will be making use of their multi-million dollar studio in Toronto instead of broadcasting from each arena as CBC has done in previous years. George Stroumboulopoulos hosts and is joined by analysts Elliotte Friedman, Kelly Hrudey, Mike Johnson and Nick Kypreos. The game crew has Jim Hughson on play-by-play, game analysts are Craig Simpson and Glenn Healy, and reporters Scott Oake and Christine Simpson. OMNI (Punjabi) play-by-play: Harnarayan Singh with game analysts: Randip Janda, Bhupinder S. Hundal. Games will be available on Sportsnet 960 The Fan and online for Sportsnet 590 The Fan.

For those of you who either despise Sportsnet’s coverage of the NHL in general or just want to hear better commentating/see better production, NBC will show games one, two and five to seven. Mike “Doc” Emrick, Eddie Olcyzk and Pierre McGuire will be in the booth with Liam McHugh, Mike Milbury and Keith Jones handling studio duties.

  1. For those who understand french, the TVA Sports isn’t a bad option. Felix Seguin and Patrick Lalime are in the booth. Louis Jean and the studio crew are there too.

  2. Canadians who can’t stand Rogers’ production are gonna be pissed off tonight and Wednesday. I’m relieved not to have any issues with the NBC Sports Group’s production.
