With the return of Sidney Crosby to the Penguins lineup tomorrow night, the National TV rights holders have opted to feature tomorrow night’s Islanders and Penguins.

CBC was the first network to make the announcement that they will broadcast the game. They will air a special edition of Hockey Night in Canada on Monday.  Jim Hughson and Craig Simpson will be on the call with Glenn Healy between the benches.

Versus made the announcement that they will broadcast the game nationally in the US an hour after CBC made their announcement. They were originally scheduled to carry the Boston Bruins – Montreal Canadiens game at 7:30. Versus will have Dave Strader and Pierre McGuire call the game.

The game will also be aired, as scheduled, on MSG Plus with the regular Islanders broadcast crew of Howie Rose and Butch Goring.

The game is catching national attention due to the climactic return of Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby. Crosby has not played since January 5 of this year due to a concussion.
