Question regarding the NHL's blackout policy. I'm a Rangers fan (obviously) that currently lives in Chicago. I have NHL Center Ice. I know the package does not show games that are nationally broadcast (like those on NBC, Versus). Game 1 is scheduled to be broadcast on Versus, which leads me to beleive it will be blacked out on center ice.
However, this isn't a national broadcast because Versus also has the rights to another game at the same time (Red Wings I beleive). Because of that, I would guess I would get the Wings game on my local Versus network. Does that mean the NYR game will be available on Center Ice? Or will they just black it out anyways?
Any insights from those in similar situations last year or in years past?
