    is NHL Network US helping out with those VERSUS JIP games?

  2. Colton says:

    The Versus JIP games will likely be on Gamecentre or Centre Ice.

  3. Eric says:

    Doesn’t Versus only have two exclusive games per series?

  4. Colton says:

    They must have two per series and then four extras.

    I’m surprised NBC didn’t pick up Det/SJ on Sunday. Detroit has mass appeal and SJ/SF is a top 5 media market. They must be desperate to show Crosby at least once…..

  6. Rindu Muncie says:

    I’m not surprised. NBC won’t show a Winter Classic if a Canadian team is involved, but when it comes to Pens/Habs or Sharks/Wings, they went with Pens/Habs just to get Crosby on and because it’s the Sharks and not Hawks/Wings.

    The only legitimate excuse is that the Eagles have back to back concerts on Fri and Sat nights, and if SJ/DET Game 2 was on NBC, it would have to be a noon start, too soon after the Eagles Concert.

    But knowing the NHL and NBC, that probably wasn’t the reason they decided against SJ/DET, but probably one they would throw out if pressed about it now.

      Actually it was already set (before the schedule was announced) that NBC’s game, for whatever reason, would be at 2 ET on Sunday, 11 a.m. PT. I wonder if there’s a rule that the league has in place stating that games can’t legally start before noon.

      • Patrick says:

        Yeah its called Horse Racing…which does 6/7x the numbers an NHL Playoff game garners. Better hope there is no overtime.

      • Dave Sullivan says:

        The Blackhawks hosted a couple of NBC games this year, face-off was 11:30 local.
