On my cable system, there are two HD channels devoted to CI the rest on regular.

On Directv, there is an HD counterpart for every SD channel. The only game that Directv doesn't broadcast in HD are the Canadian feeds. If the Canadian team is playing an American team, the HD feed from the American channel is shown. There might be rare circumstances where the American games are not broadcast in HD but those seem very few and far between.
