I go to school in Western NY and our campus has tried to appease to both Rangers and Sabres fans by having two MSG feeds in our cable. We have NYC MSG and MSG Zone 3 which is Sabres telecasts. However, every once in a while the NYC MSG is blacked out (still not sure why - might have to do with the 50 games max. clause for Rangers in Western NY).
If they end up showing Sabres/Islanders on MSG Zone 3 and FSNY and black out the Rangers game on NYC MSG, I'm going to be PISSED.
Sounds like your "NYC MSG" feed is really zone 2, which is central/eastern NY. If that is the case, you should get the Rangers games on that feed. Sabres/Isles will be on FSNY in zone 2.
From my experience last year if you're out of market and have center ice you're fine for the playoffs. It will show all msg and nbc games (that aren't on in your area) and if any are on versus you'll just have to make sure you get vs.
p.s. center ice started a new thing this year where they don't show both broadcasts for games they just take the home one (or which ever is available). so for the games in atlanta we'll be stuck watching the thrashers feed.
When I had dish, I got both the home and away feeds but now that I am on Time Warner cable I get only the home feed....
i am in schenectady, are they showing the Buffalo game here too!?
oh no! oh no! how do i find out!?
freak out time...
I'm pretty sure that the Ranger game will only be on in the New York City/ Long Island area. I'm not sure about Schenectady, but I know that the western part of the state will be getting the Sabre game.
