OLN to feature McCarty homecoming
NEW YORK (Dec. 9, 2005) - NHL Productions and OLN will offer hockey fans special coverage this Monday night before and after OLN's telecast of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Detroit Red Wings (7p.m., E.T), highlighting two of the NHL's most beloved players, Darren McCarty and Mario Lemieux.

The network will first air "Darren McCarty: Homecoming" at 6:30 p.m., ET. Produced by NHL Productions, the show takes a look at the former Red Wing and fan favorite during his recent return to Detroit (Dec. 1) with his new team, the Calgary Flames.

NHL Productions followed Darren for two days; from the moment he arrived at the airport to his return home to spend time with his family as they prepared for the holidays. McCarty wore a wireless microphone during the Calgary-Detroit game where some colorful exchanges were captured between Darren and former teammates Brendan Shanahan and Matthew Schneider.

"It's always in the back of your mind that this is still the guy (Darren) that was your brother for many years and always will be," says Shanahan.

At 7 p.m., (ET), the NHL on OLN will feature the first and only regular season meeting between the Penguins and Red Wings, live from Joe Louis Arena in Detroit.

Immediately following the game at 10:00 p.m. (ET), OLN's exclusive biographical series, "Fearless", will feature a one-hour look at the seasoned warrior and his incredible journey of courage and strength while battling Hodgkin's Disease and other surgeries.

The first overall pick in the 1984 draft, Lemieux is approaching his 700th career goal milestone and has lead the Penguins to two Stanley Cup Championships. Fans can have a fist-hand look into Mario's journey of recovery and triumph of returning to the game he loves.
