NBCSN's coverage

Cheers everybody, I can't for the life of me remember what NBCSN and company did last year, but is anyone aware of any contingency plan for when Wild v. Hawks game 1 inevitably lasts longer than the 2 and half hours from the start of that game to the start of the Wings game?

I would say hey, they'll just put it on CNBC, but we'll likely have the same issue there with Kings-Blues. Are we just SOL?

Thanks, GO WINGS

2 years ago, I remember missing the whole first period of game 4 (the series clinching game) against the coyotes because a capitals rangers game went into overtime

Hopefully it won't be preempted.

Also, hopefully the final three games will be televised somewhere other than TSN...

If they were smart they would put the beginning of the wings game on msnbc until the Chicago game is over.

Will FSN be broadcasting the games in the first round? I know they have done the first two rounds in the past.

*shakes angry fist at lack of weekend matinees*

Don't. We always seem to lose those early games.

Nice FSD is doing the whole first round, love it. And... from what i'm seeing no FSD+? Double nice.

It looks that way. I have FSN+HD so it wouldn't matter to me if it was on + or not. :)

Still, I welcome the hometown announcing duo for the first round of the playoffs.

In the eyes of the "Powers That Be @ NBC", Marquee = Matinee. This translates into Eastern Conference match-ups.

Detroit will get a lot more coverage next year.

one advantage of being in the west is the lack of afternoon games, which the wings always seem to suck in

if i recall, when the channel was still called versus, they would have an extra channel for games that run over, simliar to fsd plus. perhaps that is how they will do it

That was used one season and like 2 times. Don't see an NBCSN (alt) yet and haven't heard of one for the future.
