'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Fans will not have to channel-surf to find the Penguins' opening-round playoff games next month.

Though the playoff television schedule will not be released until April 8, most of the Penguins' Eastern Conference quarterfinal games will air on FSN Pittsburgh.

NBC holds the exclusive right to show a maximum of two Penguins opening-round games on the weekends of April 14-15 and, if the best-of-7 series goes beyond five games, April 21-22. All remaining games will be broadcast locally on FSN Pittsburgh.

VERSUS, the NHL's national cable partner, has no exclusive option to air the Penguins' opening-round games.

If the Penguins advance to the Eastern Conference semifinals, NBC again will hold exclusive rights to air potentially two weekend games. VERSUS then would have exclusive rights to show up to two non-weekend games. FSN Pittsburgh would air all non-exclusive games.

NBC and VERSUS will have exclusive rights to air the conference finals and the Stanley Cup finals.

VERSUS can be found locally on Comcast (channel 17 or 60), Armstrong Cable (channel 485), DirecTV (channel 608) and Dish Network (channel 151).
