I have Versus and FSN-D through the DirecTV Sport Pack.

If NHL Center Ice is indeed done for the season, I can actually watch FSN-D. Otherwise, since it is not my local station, it was always blackout when the game was on Center Ice, which is like every game. tongue.gif

I don't think FOX (or the NHL) would ever let that happen for free during the playoffs. laugh.gif The only time I've seen FSD have Wings games for out-of-market people without Center Ice is either during a free preview, or, during the preseason.

What's weird to me is, I haven't heard a peep about what the NHL Network might be covering.

I hope it's all the Wings games that aren't on Versus. tongue.gif

Realistically, it'll probably be any of the Canadian teams.

Oh dang it! I hate Center Ice. I can only subscribe to so much TV! I am already paying $300 a year for Sunday Ticket, I can't justify another $150 for Center Ice or whatever it costs.

Sucks...here we go streaming!

Crossing my fingers then that maybe the NHL Network picks up the Wings games for those without Center Ice.

Edit: Oh yeah, or streams.

As I said earlier, I wish this happened last year as opposed to this year, because last year the Wings playoffs games were streamed, and in pretty good quality no less. I used them whenever the reception went off during storms.

This year atdhe isn't the same as it was before, thus I'll have to exclusively rely on streaming, with the s***ty possibility that the stream will freeze up in OT or something like that.

I blame this all on Bettman and him putting his baby Penguins all over TV so he can wack it to his boy Crosby.

this is for the Canadian wings fans, ask everyone you know if they have expressview. just found out myself that I know someone who has got it so I am saved! (for games 1 and 5)

If I had to guess, I would say the NHL Network will be broadcasting the CBC games, which is basically the Habs/Bruins series. They have been airing HNIC all year. As far as the Hawks/Flames series, I'm really surprised that CBC isn't carrying it. I heard funding was cut for sports, but thats rediculous.

Also, Center Ice is supposed to run for the first two rounds of the playoffs...this is in the terms when you purchase the package. I have a feeling for us out-of-market Wings fans that they will go with FSN feeds over TSN...I haven't seen one TSN feed in HD on Center Ice, and the SD feeds look like crap.

Thankfully I have nhl center ice and as long as I get to watch the games, I'm not overly concerned whether it's an HD feed or not.

Center Ice will have the first two rounds it seems

http://www.indemand.com/sports/nhl/

Q: HOW MANY GAMES CAN I EXPECT TO SEE ON NHL® CENTER ICE®?
A: As an NHL® CENTER ICE® subscriber, you will see up to 40 games a week (from outside your local viewing area) throughout the regular season, select games from the first two rounds of the Stanley Cup® playoffs, plus premier Canadian match-ups.

I see every game on TSN2 from that link. There's no chance game two will be on normal TSN when the Flames play that night. God damn it.

I have to admit the 1st round matchups in the East are a bit more compelling.
Montreal vs. Boston
and Pittsburgh vs. Phily especially.
High skill teams that absolutely hate each other.

The closest the West has is Anaheim vs. San Jose - two teams that are not too fond of each other at all.
But Detroit does pack in the rating, no matter who they play, and Columbus will gett "Cinderella Story" headlines with their first win... as if.


but VS is only set to show ONE game between Mont. and Bos, this is rediculous as this is a historically important matchup and a bitter rivalry going back generations. But then again in the new NHL history doesn't mean anything so I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

so if you're in America outside of Michigan and without Center Ice and a Wings fan you're pretty much screwed. You'd think the league would give the defending champs a little more r-e-s-p-e-c-t

That's what I've been saying all day. The Pens don't even have fans outside of their city, and yet all their games are televised. I guess the team that finished 2nd last season gets more respect than the team that won the Cup.

The league needs to get over this Crosby obsession. Televising all of their games, and only a few from other more important series' is too much of a discrepancy.

I hate Bettman and his cronies so much.

Flames at Blackhawks doesn't start until 7 p.m. and the Wings game is the early start. If they switch it to the Deuce so they can whack it to Phaneuf, they switch it to the Deuce. If you have Shaw you shouldn't have a problem.

Back last year when they had that weird "TSN Alternate" it was so hit and miss what or when they would show games it was a complete mess. I'll take the Deuce over what they had last year.

If Pittsburgh goes out in the first round they will probably forget that hockey is still being played and instead put on reruns of their magical 2008 cup... oh wait. dry.gif

TSN2 is available on Bell Expressvu in HD for canucks. If you don't get it, it's your fault for being with Rogers because they suck!

^ Good lookin! Man I didn't check my bill, do people get charged the 30 something dollars for April for Center Ice? Knowing the NHL they'll probably charge me for May and June. Stupid bulls***.

The fact that not all the games will be easily watchable for everyone with basic cable = epic fail on the leagues part. This is the playoffs!!!! How do they ever expect to be taken seriously when they can't find a way to televise all of their playoff games?
