Among the Lightning games selected by Versus were three against the Southeast Division rival Capitals, including Tampa Bay's first trip to Washington since eliminating the Capitals in the Eastern Conference semifinal. Other highlights among the chosen games were a Nov. 9 home game against the Philadelphia Flyers and Tampa Bay general manager Steve Yzerman's first return to Detroit on Nov. 30.


Not too bad considering they were considered death to ratings not all that long ago.

I'd rather not have NBC coverage..

21 games overall though, pretty nice.

Not surprised by NBC. They seem to have their favorites. But showing a record number of games nationally is great for us!

No NBC games? But we're America's team!

Only 1 TSN game? But we're Canada's team too!

What is the split of home/away games? I will be at the home games anyway, so more interested in those away.

It's not good for ratings to have Canadian teams be continually crushed by a 'non-traditional' American market.

My prediction for the game that does air on TSN: 11-3, and the 3 is only because it's Ian Walsh, and we play the game entirely without a goalie.

One of the goals will be Walsh picking the puck up during a stoppage of play, skating down to our end of the rink, and throwing it in.

So really it's like 11 nationally televised games. I'll have to stream the NHLN games.

Yeah, no more NHL hockey on ESPN America for Europe... kinda sucks. We seem to have to go the "illegal" way.
