Does Hershey typically show road games??? I tend to think no. But the year they played Texas and had like the best record ever Texas won the first 2 in Hershey and then when Hershey went to texas the NHL Network swooped in and covered the remaining 4 and we got stuck with that airhead Walton.
Considering the crap that makes it on to sports channels these days it is disappointing that more of the AHL playoffs are not covered. I understand it would need to be limited but TSN or Sportsnet should have the ability to jump in for a big game or a big series.
The Marlies in the final should be of some interest in Canada.
