    At least I get to see Lindsay Soto tonight.

    Something to help take sting off another Capitals Playoff choke. Dont even have Devils as fall back this year.

    So its ABP now (Anyone But Pittsburgh)

    (I posted this in the wrong thread before… my bad…..)

    Can someone explain to me why the Game 7 that Doesn’t involve a West Coast team is delayed an hour, but the Game 7 that involved Anaheim starts at 7ET? Which means most Ducks fans don’t even GET OFF OF WORK FOR ANOTHER HOUR!!!!!!

    Lunacy…… sheer, unabashed Lunacy…..

      Good point. How do they come up with these things? The “arena availability” excuse is too easy for them to hide behind.

  3. nosferatu says:

    Good grief, how poorly officiated has this Anaheim-Detroit game been? Both ways – they’re making calls based on reactions, clearly not based on actually seeing penalties.

    • Brian says:

      Yeah, that was pretty bad.

      My other question is why can’t VS show highlights of the other game during the game?? That stiff guy has to come on and recite the same old poem about hockey central. He even mentioned that there was a goal. Show it for crap’s sake! TSN shows updates seconds after they happen.

      Now hockey central is on and they still haven’t mentioned the other game. They are just blabbing with their generic stuff. …. ok, now they mentioned it : they will update AFTER another commercial break. Way to go VS!! Just SHOW the game in between periods. No one needs this Hockey Central nonsense!!!

    >>Now hockey central is on and they still haven’t mentioned the other game.

    Surely you jest? 🙂 If the game isn’t on Versus it isn’t really being played is it? 🙂

  5. Archbishop Dolan says:

    Niedermayer – DEAD!
    Versus sucks. Just plain sucks. No instant highlights of the “other” game. Lame, lame, lame.
    And this is what Bettman wants?

    And this is what Bettman wants?

    At least the Versus has taken the neutral TSN feed of the third period. Good job Versus…

  7. Danimal says:

    I’d suspect next year there will be codification that on nights with two or more overlapping games, NHL Network U.S. will always take one of them (second choice after Versus).

  8. Scotty says:

    Schedule is out for the conference finals. NBC only has 2 games so Versus has the rest. NBC only having 2 games isn’t that bad its just how it works into their schedule. And it looks like they extended the round and have days off included to make it stretch closer to the June 5th Cup Finals start.

  9. Praveen says:

    I mentioned elsewhere. How freaking tough would it have been to have the Boston game start at 6 or 6:30 and the Detroit game at 9? 9 is not too late for Detroit. Hell, other sports start close to that time during big games.

    Now with the OT , it ended up working out so that viewers got to see an OK portion of the Bruins game.Stil…
