The coronavirus pandemic has shut down sports all over the world, but that doesn't mean there aren't sporting events on television to give fans the action they crave.
TSN and Sportsnet have teamed up to air every game of the the Toronto Raptors' championship run through the 2019 NBA playoffs, with a different game aired every night. The response has been positive thus far, as fans and pundits alike have taken to social media to discuss the games "live."
The two Canadian cable sports networks have increased their output of classic games as the COVID-19 shutdown continues, with nearly all of their respective primetime schedules now featuring select events from across the sporting spectrum.
Sporting News has compiled all the classic games across the two main sports networks to help fans navigate the nostalgia. Please note that we've limited the listings to full game replays; any truncated events have not been included here.
