When the Habs plays against the Leafs, Flames, Oilers or Canucks, the SNET feeds are always blacked out in Montreal for those games even if the game is not broadcast in english in Montreal; you need RDS.
Exactly... I doubt that SNET would be happy if they were showing the Vancouver/Habs game in Vancouver and The Score was also showing it. Since its Vancouver those regional rights come into play, and The Score must be blacked out.
