I am going out for breakfast. After that I am headed home and watching the game. Maybe with Islanders4life39. Turns out he couldnt get the tickets to this game. But next game I will be at the Coloseium representing the Rangers.
Here is to a nice clean game. Good officiating. Hopefully, we come out hungry for the win.
You are correct. This is complete nonsense. Who the heck wants to watch Pens/Bruins when you can see NYI/NYR. Yes the Pens have Crosby, but if the NHL wants to sell itself as a high intensity and exciting game then you have to show Rangers/Islanders, especially with the playoffs on the line.
Bad call by the NHL and NBC. At least the other feed should be available online somewhere.

It's all about ratings, the NYR & NYI have poor ratings, so this shouldn't suprise you.
- #1 in U.S. = Buffalo average viewer rating is 5.6
- #2 in U.S. = Detroit average viewer rating is 5.0
- #3 in U.S. = Pittsburgh average viewer rating is 4.5
- Rangers average 36,834 viewers a game
- Devils average 13,206 viewers a game (average viewer rating is .18)
- Islanders average 7,336 viewers a game
They want the most people watching their network, the most people watching the advertising.
