  1. Jake says:

    Steve-

    Thanks for the great work. Any word from the NHLN-US folks if there’s a chance they revert to covering the 10 PM Hockey Night in Canada games on a regular basis like they did a few years ago. I don’t know anyone who would rather watch a repeating highlight show than actual game coverage, even if the late game usually involves a Canadian team.

    • leafsfan1967 says:

      The NHL Network seems to be moving away from Hockey Night in Canada games. The first year they showed both games and “After Hours” the second year they only showed the early game most weeks. Last year they started reducing those and this year the trend continues. For Leafs fans in the US (and yes we do exist!) the news is really grim as the NHL Network has become the Habs network most Saturdays. It’s all rather depressing since DirecTV doesn’t pick up HNIC in HD.

  2. nosferatu says:

    Do you guys know if they black out the HNIC games–that are shown on NHL Network–on GameCenter Live? I know it’s pretty standard for them to black out any nationally televised games, but I just moved to a place where Charter doesn’t even offer the NHL Network and I doubt I’ll be getting Center Ice again this year.

    • Colton says:

      I don’t believe they blackout NHL Network games on Gamecentre. They really don’t have any justification to do so. They own both…

      • leafsfan1967 says:

        Perhaps Steve could confirm this with the NHL but I do think NHL Network games are blacked out on Game Center

    • Mike says:

      Yes, they black out all games shown on the NHL network on GameCenter Live. That’s long been a sore point for me, I don’t understand why there isn’t an option at least to pay a couple of extra bucks a month to get those games-it doesn’t seem like that many cable companies even offer the NHL network.

  3. The NHL Network has been showing the second game and After Hours on tape delay. This sucks, but what makes it worse is that they run the scores from the previous night, including the game we are watching.

    I do know that NHL Center Ice does carry HNIC games that are not on the NHL Network.

  4. e says:

    Does anyone know why nhl network is moving away from the hockey night on Canada telecasts on Saturday night? This was a great chance for hockey fans in the US to watch the best coverage. Im very disappointed.

  5. Bruinsfan says:

    What a stupid time for a game (1PM on Monday)

    Last winter classic we made a new viewing record when the game was in prime time.. Y not make it prime time again?

    • TiLoBrown says:

      1 PM on a Monday thats gonna be observed as New Years Day by most companies. So they may not work or just take the day off. 8 PM on a Monday, would require people to miss work on Tuesday. Also Monday nights are probably the most competitive nights on TV normally, who knows if they networks will change anything because of new years.

      I know for me, I plan on working 7 – 11 that day, home by 12:30, watching the game at 1.
