In “Here We Go Again News”: NBC Revives Antique Policy That Still Probably Works

From the Pens website:
Penguins fans will be able to watch Game 1 tonight and most of the remainder of the Penguins-Canadiens playoff series on the outdoor screen in front of Mellon Arena.
However, the Penguins are not permitted to show Game 2 on the outdoor screen Sunday afternoon in accordance with league broadcasting rights.
We all know “league broadcasting rights” means NBC. However, this worked last year as Pens fans stayed home or in bars and watched in droves. We shall all see how it works this year.
