    Huh. Maybe the reason NBC distributed SJ/DET so widely is that they knew that outside of Detroit, it was not going to many strong markets.

      Also, I’m not sure how many markets it ended up going out to. It was scheduled to be on the air in the Charlotte market, but they instead (and, even as a Sharks fan, I might say rightfully so) aired the Pittsburgh-Buffalo game. At least I was able to watch the Sharks on the NBC affiliate out of Johnson City, TN, though in SD.
