NBC to air Stanley Cup finals games

Associated Press

NEW YORK -- The first two games of the Stanley Cup finals this year will be on NBC, giving the league's broadcast partner a crack at weekend audiences.

Versus will show the next two before the final three, if necessary, will be on NBC.

For the past 10 years, either ESPN or Versus has shown the first two games of the best-of-seven series.
