From a CBC Press Release –

Sidney Crosby returns to Canada for the first time since rejoining the Penguins lineup when Pittsburgh travels to Montréal to tangle with the Canadiens on CBC’S HOCKEY NIGHT IN CANADA this Saturday at 7 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast to fans in Ontario-East (except northwest Ontario). That’s followed by Vancouver at San Jose at 10 p.m. ET in the teams’ first encounter since the Canucks bounced the Sharks in last season’s Western Conference Final, broadcast nationwide.

Fans in Alberta & B.C. will see the Edmonton Oilers take on the Colorado Avalanche in a divisional match-up while fans in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and northwest Ontario (excluding Thunder Bay) will see the Winnipeg Jets make their first visit to Boston to take on the Stanley Cup Champion Bruins. Both games are 7 p.m. ET starts.

Pre-game excitement builds with HNIC Game Day hosted by PJ Stock and Andi Petrillo at 5 p.m. ET and Scotiabank Hockey Tonight with host Ron MacLean at 6:30 p.m. ET. The day’s sports action begins at Noon ET with CBC Sports Weekend, including Men’s Downhill action live from Lake Louise and Championship Figure Skating live from the Grand Prix event in Moscow.
