I can't stand it!

Why oh why isn't the Sabres game televised in my area tonight? Why would the owner decide NOT to broadcast a certain number of games on MSG, but on TSN, which my dish doesn't get?

I'll be forced to listen on the radio, while watching a muted "Law and Order" rerun.

Grrrrrr.

I could watch it. I have NHL Center Ice. Nyah nyah nyah.

But it really doesn't make sense that an American station isn't carrying the game, too.

Wait, I just checked. OLN (well now they call it Versus http://www.versus.tv/ ) is going to be showing the game. I'm not sure if it will be blacked out in your area or not. Does your cable get that? It's 608 on DirecTV if you have that.

One year a few years ago (before the lock out) we didn't get Center Ice one year and I got really good at following the games on nhl radio.

Of course since your team is in your area, Center Ice doesn't make sense for you.

And it's channel 151 on the Dish Network and 75 on Time Warner Cable.

Damn that NHL Strike for causing all of this.

I just hope she trusted me to see if she gets OLN/Versus so she could watch the game.

I feel sorry, if you didnt get to watch it. It was an awsome game...if you are a Sabres fan, not so much for all thoes flyers fans.

And all I can say, is I have a couple of favorite goalies one of my favorites is Ryan Miller, I love that boy. 9-1 What happened to Esche, it was just sad, the only thing he did was get an asisst on the only goal that Philly scored.

Oy. That's not nice, not at all! It seems there were a lot of broadcasting issues concerning the NHL after the Lockout, but I thought they're solved now, at least over there. Hope you'll get to watch all the coming games without any problems!

But oy... what did the Sabres do with Philly? They crushed them into the ice! They made ice cubes out of them! ;))) 9:1, now that rocks big time - and Vanek scoring twice AND adding two assists makes me a very proud Austrian for a change ;)
