Yes. The games are blacked out
1) in the local TV market
2) if nationally televised (US and/or Canada) it will be blacked out in that country

There's basically three scenarios
1) Not televised nationally in US - Can use an exit point outside of either team's local market (i.e. NYC, Chicago, etc)
2) Televised nationally in US but not Canada - Use a canadian exit point as long as it's not a local market for opponent
3) Televised nationally in both US and Canada - Use a non-north american exit point (i.e. Europe, South America)

Scenario 3 is what I am most concerned with, considering when you leave N.A. your speeds are going to diminish quite a bit. My hope is that it's enough to stream without dropping the connection. This is problematic since the playoffs will fall into this scenario
