Note: The game was seen as part of the CBS Sports Spectacular show. The game was joined in progress during the second intermission with extended highlights of the first two periods. Unfortunately, the coverage was marred as CBS refused to show any action along the far boards due to the advertising on the boards. When the play was along the far boards, viewers only saw the legs and skates of players.
