HDTV Listings for June 17, 2006


What we're watching: The NHL Finals continue, as Edmonton looks to pull off another miracle and force a deciding Game 7 at Carolina. However, the big sporting event of the night is the middleweight title fight between Winky Wright and Jermain Taylor. The younger, bigger champion Taylor vs. the more experienced, defensive-minded Wright. Which style will win out?

HBO will also show the recent light heavyweight fight between Antonio Tarver and Bernard Hopkins prior to the Wright-Taylor bout. The sweet science is on display at 9:30 p.m on HBO-HD.
