Notes:
After the 1985-86 season CTV canceled their coverage of NHL hockey,
citing low ratings and an inability to clear other programming for
both regular season and playoff telecasts. This left Carling O'Keefe
with two years left on its four year deal with the NHL and no place to
televise them. The issue became an open sore when the playoffs opened
and Carling O'Keefe could not muster a network of some sort, peaking
when the Habs-Nordiques series opened with no telecasts originating
from Quebec City. Finally, Carling struck a deal with a CanWest and
Global consortium that also had a few CBC and CTV affiliates sprinkled
in to carry game 6 of the MTL-QUE game from Le Colisee, the Wales
Conference finals and then games 3 and 4 of the SC Final and games 5
and 7 if necessary. The pact also included the 1988 playoffs as well.
The network was labeled as the "Stanley Cup 87" network.

Unlike the split CTV/CBC coverage of 1985 and 1986, the CanWest-Global
telecasts were network exclusive, except for game 7 of the SC Final.
Both CBC and CanWest-Global televised game 7, using separate
production facilities and separate on-air talent.

Notes:
Despite CTV cancelled their two-year-long contract with the NHL, Carling O’Keefe retained their rights (there were two years left on the contract with or without CTV).

Things became problematic when the 1987 Stanley Cup playoffs opened with Carling O'Keefe still without a network of some sort. The problems arguably peaked when the Montréal-Québec second-round playoff series opened without Molson being allowed to broadcast from Quebec City, leaving Games 3 and 4 off of English-language television altogether. This led to a hastily-arranged syndicated package on a chain of stations that would one day form the basis of the Global Television Network. The deal between Carling O'Keefe and the Canwest/Global consortium (with a few CBC and CTV affiliates sprinkled in for good measure) came just in time for Game 6 of this series on April 30. They also aired the entire Campbell Conference Finals and then aired games 3–5 of the Stanley Cup Final. The pact also included the 1988 playoffs as well. The network was labeled as the "Stanley Cup '87" and "Stanley Cup '88" network.

Unlike the CBC/CTV split coverage of 1984–85 and 1985–86, the Canwest/Global telecasts were network exclusive, except for Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals if it was necessary. When CBC and Global televised Game 7 of the 1987 Stanley Cup Finals, they used separate production facilities and separate on-air talent.
