Seems it doesn't matter if you can get the channel or not.

"You may be blacked out of games on NHL GameCenter LIVE™ for one of the following reasons:
The game you are trying to access is being televised on a local over-the-air station and you are located within that station's signal.
The game you are trying to access is being televised on a regional sports network and your cable or satellite system falls within the distribution for that regional sports network (regardless of whether your cable or satellite system actually carries that regional sports network).
The game you are trying to access is being televised on a national network. In the U.S. this includes NBC, NBC Sports Network and NHL Network. In Canada this includes CBC, NHL Network™, RDS and TSN."

Wonder what the playoff coverage will be like

The game you are trying to access is being televised on a regional sports network and your cable or satellite system falls within the distribution for that regional sports network (regardless of whether your cable or satellite system actually carries that regional sports network).

Sounds a little overreaching. That'd effectively blackout every regional only game for out of market fans in both US and Canada, as Sportsnet is distributed nationally... as is CSN/FSN.

Also, for an online service - how do they know if or what you have for a cable or satellite service?
