FSW, Prime Ticket to air Classic Hockey Games

With hours of programming to fill on Fox Sports West and Prime Ticket due to the NHL lockout, the networks will air classic hockey games featuring the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Prime Ticket will show games from the Ducks’ 2003 Stanley Cup run and FSW will air Kings’ playoff games from last season.

Old hockey is better than no hockey, right? Sigh.
