If you can't get enough of the Knights, Rogers Television is giving fans a chance for more. Tonight, tomorrow and Friday, viewers can watch the "best of" their games this season.

It asked its broadcasters and Free Press reporter Jim Cressman, who covers the team, to pick a game that fans would enjoy watching again.

Tonight, it will rebroadcast the Jan. 9 game against the Owen Sound Attack, which London won 5-4 in overtime, snapping a nine-game winning streak for Owen Sound.

Tomorrow, it's the Feb. 4 game with the Peterborough Petes, in which the Knights scored five third-period goals to win 7-5.

Broadcast time for both games is 9 p.m.

On Friday, the final game of the OHL championship against Ottawa can be seen again starting at 8 p.m.

Although parent network Rogers Sportsnet will broadcast all Memorial Cup games, the local Rogers crew will take over after the games with Memorial Cup Prime Time.

Along with a call-in forum, Rogers cable also will provide game analysis, highlights, player interviews and coverage of the postgame conferences.

The first show can be seen Saturday at 10 p.m. following the game between the Knights and Rimouski Oceanic. A toll-free call-in number will be operational for viewers from across Ontario.

Memorial Cup Prime Time can also be seen live at www.rogerstelevision.com.

Once the tournament is over, there is still more in store for viewers. Knights highlights over the past 40 years will be featured in a one-hour documentary made by Chris Doty. His documentary, Green and Gold: 40 Seasons of the London Knights, premieres on Rogers on June 3 at 7 p.m.

Doty, a London resident, includes interviews with Darryl Sittler, Dino Ciccarelli and Brendan Shanahan, plus footage of the opening of the London Gardens in 1963 and Dan Eastman's overtime goal in Game 8 of the 1977 semi-final against the St. Catharines Fincups among other highlights.
