Canadiens – Avalanche Broadcast In Black And White

Canadiens - Avalanche Broadcast In Black And WhiteTotal Pro Sports – To celebrate the 100th season of the Montreal Canadiens, fans watching the game between the Montreal Canadiens and the Colorado Avalanche tonight fans will be treated to an old time tradition.  At the beginning of the second period the game will switch to an old fashioned black and white broadcast (so don’t get worried it will turn back).

Altitude Sports & Entertainment announced that it will broadcast the second period of the Montreal Canadiens’ visit to Pepsi Center on February 13th in black and white with an “old time” coverage style. The telecast changes are in celebration of the Canadiens’ 100th season playing in the NHL and will give viewers a flashback to what it was like when hockey was first shown on TV.

“Friday night’s old time hockey coverage is a way for us to celebrate the rich history of the NHL and to remind fans of the evolution of live sports television coverage,” said Matt Hutchings, Altitude’s EVP/COO. “We hope that fans will enjoy the special broadcast and celebrate this history with us.” Reported SportsNet

I know my grandfather who is a die hard hockey fan will be thrilled to watch hockey what they felt were they good ol’days.
