I'm guessing that since there are only 2 Canadian teams in the Playoffs that there will be pressure on the CBC to show both series on the entire CBC network. But until I see otherwise I'm holding out hope that Games 1 and 3 do end up airing here in BC.
Don't make sense for them to bid for the rights to broadcast then ?...
Center Ice doesn't broadcast playoffs games......for cripes sake.......I will freak if there is no broadcast of this series.....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I found this on NHL.com website
"With NHL Centre Ice on Bell you get up to 40 key regular season games per week, including a number of games in high definition. Select games from the first and second rounds of the Stanley Cup® Playoffs.
See the best match-ups, including games from VERSUS, NBC and U.S. Regional Sports Networks.
So if they don't show a playoff game this would be false advertising IMHO .
I'd like to thank CBC for picking our series and then relegating it to 2nd class status. If they had left it for TSN they could have put it on TSN2. I'm counting down the days until CTV gets rights and puts CBC out of its misery.
I just checked the TV listings and TSN is showing a game at 7:30 on Thursday - I hope this is the Boston/Washington game. TSN is not listed as a broadcaster on the NHL.com schedule but maybe they have made some sort of deal?
Edit: TSN isn't broadcasting it either. This really sucks.
