I'm feeling the Saad love today as well. Thinking he pots number one tonight.

As for HD, I don't think there's a sport that benefits more from HD than hockey does.

There are some really good streams at:

When there are nationally televised games, sometimes you can get HD quality.

I seem to remember the Wild breaking a nine game win streak either in our cup season or the season before the cup.

6 years ago we couldn't get home games on television at all, now we are discussing our disdain for SD TV. (I basically don't watch non-HD television.) My how the times have changed.

Definitely ready to go to college so I can see all the NBCSN games at bars and what not. I get all other Hawks games in HD, but I have to watch the NBCSN Hawks games in standard definition.

It blows really hard. I might just leave because they refuse to get DirecTV or Dish.
Didn't know Mediacom existed on this side of the Mississippi. Is Comcast not available by you?

That streak was book ended by losses in Detroit (as I was at both games lol)

In '10 we were up 5-1 on the Wild, lost 6-5 when Huet decided to Huet it up in the 3rd and then played like utter crap for three months until we went back there in late March, shut them out and went 22-7 or something the rest of the way.

You're the broadcasting expert. Do you think the game will be on center ice since it is not going to be on local tv?

For some reason I don't think games that are on cable television are on center ice either, even if they're not on local channels. Pretty sure it won't be.

Just use Martini's gorgeous uber stream if you don't have NBCSN in HD

Feeling 2 goals from Toews in this one. Strong game by Crawford, but loses the shutout in the third period (hasn't this happened 2 or 3 times already this season?).

You don't have cable either, right? Do we get NBCSN, even in standard? I don't seem to recall it but there are a lot of channels and I have center ice so it would stand to reason I would have that too if it is available...

That'd be like a Cubs game on ESPN being on Extra Innings. No, it will not.

NBCSN is in 8 out of every 10 homes that ESPN is in. It's a pretty widely distributed channel at this point. It won't be on Center Ice anywhere nationally, only in Canada.

Thanks. Yes, I know this isn't an issue for 99% of people but being off the grid, it is for me. At least there are only two games all year where this is an issue. I have no problem going to a friend's house for those two.

Nope.

I get it in standard. It's on some random channel in the hundreds for me. 549 I think.

FWIW ... Last night I had the same situation for a Toronto game. Center Ice had the game blacked out for a short period when it came on the air, but it kicked in just as the National anthem was finishing. Normally CI would have blacked out the entire game.

Good luck tonight Hawks fans, I respect your team but I do say I have a healthy hatred for all Chicago sports teams. Bears, White Sox, Cubs, ect.... So I hope the new division goes through and hopefully we can have North Stars/Blackhawks style hatred in the future.

Anyone who has Heatley as a prominent member of its team really should be careful when throwing stones.

Going to have to try that as I am in a hotel and it is blacked out on Gamecenter. I mean...FFS. Not every home has cable and roughly 35-40% of hotels have NBCS.

Does that include those who have Heatley on their fantasy team on this forum?
