Play to the end tonight guys, especially if it's close, the Avs had that last second (literally) buzzer-beater goal last night to force OT. FINISH IT IN REGULATION!

I think the Devils got a little cocky, or maybe I did and thought they were going to win Tuesday.

Hopefully the right team comes out on the ice tonight. It's an important game with the tough schedule remaining.

LGD!

Why does it seem that the Devils, Rangers and Islanders always play at the same time?

Why do the Rangers get broadcasted on their local channel if they are being televised nationally on NBC?

Why can’t MSG have a fvcking 3rd HD channel?

Why am I paying ridiculous HD fees to my cable provider just to end watching the Devils in sh!tty quality?

Why am I such a whiner?

Its stupid when a channel dedicated to looking at real estate listings can be in HD but a sports game with 100x the audience is relegated to SD.

this is probably a contract thing, similar to why Giants and Jets games that are on NFL Network also appear on channel 9 or 11 or whatever. They have to blackout the NFL network broadcast in the teams' home markets and allow a local station to cover it. Goes back to the days when not everyone had cable or satellite and most used rabbit ears. In this case, not sure but I don't think the NBC Sports channel is blacked out at the same time, but they do apparently have the wrinkle that they have to allow the teams' own broadcast networks to cover the game as well for the local fans. btw...if it matters, Duchene likely in tonight for the Avs, Jiggy projected starting in goal, per nhl.com Edited by Legion15

Guys, guys. If you have cablevision and HD try channel 414. That had the MSG+2 feed in HD throughout the season.
