Team looks really good out there...THIS is the team I've been expecting. What a game thus far, very good flow. 14 shots to 7, good stat. 3 powerplays to none, another good stat. Unbelievable board word by the boys, too.
Hey, I don't know if I should use the GDT for this, but I am having a HUGE problem getting this game.
The girlfriend and I just moved to Pennsylvania (ugh) and we got our cable hooked up today. I called and ordered the Center Ice package that includes NHLNetwork. NYR - ANA is the featured game, but for some reason, as soon as the game starts, I hear one and a half words from Sam (a comforting voice from home to say the least after the week we've had) and it cuts to TOR - CLB. How can we be blacked out in NE PA? We don't have MSG as an alternative, so how can they force us to watch it on the channel they want us to, when there is no channel available?
To make matters worse, the center ice package is airing The TOR - CLB game on one of the NHLCI channels, so I have two ways to watch the game we don't care about and zero ways to watch the one we do.
I can't find any criteria for what blacks out any given game, and we're both freakin' out. Can anyone here shed some light?
Another thing I've noticed is the Ducks can barely contain the puck because the Rangers are coming at them hard. They are finishing every check. Gaborik too, and he isn't just giving soft finishes like usual he is really putting strength into his check finishing.
