TV Schedule

Recommended Posts

What will it take to get the Canes March 23 game against Florida on Foxsports Carolinas? Right now, it's not scheduled and that one's looming to be a HUGE game! Anyone us fans can email and bug about this? In years past they've added games down the stretch. I figure we better start bugging the right people now before it's too late!

Can you supply an email address?

That game has no TV coverage scheduled, so I won't even be able to get it on Center Ice!!!

It will not happen. It is a Vs. exclusive night, which means the only way it goes on TV is on Vs. They are showing NJD vs. PHL, and they won't be changing from that to two SE teams.

The only way we get on Vs. is if we are playing a major market. In fact it appears that the only way we get on Vs. is if we play THE major market.

Well, yeah. Frustrating from a fan perspective, but perfectly understandable from a business perspective. I think we were on a few more times the season after we won the Cup, so there's some more motivation. :)

It would be interesting if the Devils and/or Philly weren't in the playoff hunt, because our game is definitely going to have playoff implications. I still doubt they would switch, though.

One other interesting side note to this is that the rule does not apply to teams in Canada. For example, last night's TOR vs. OTT game, though at the same time as ours, was televised in Canada, but blacked out on Center Ice in the US. Also note there were no other games scheduled during that game window - if there were, they couldn't be televised.

Noticed on the monthly schedule on NHL.COM, that FSN-Detriot is showing the Flames-Wings that night. If that game can be telecast, why can't the game be shown on our network?

Time of that game must be 9:30 or later. The Vs. exclusivity window is only for the game they are showing (which wasn't very clear from what I posted above). If you look through the schedule, you'll see Monday nights from January on are lightly scheduled. At the start of the season the night is Tuesday, probably to avoid competition with Monday Night Football.

Yep, it's a 9:30PM start. I realize the two teams are from "small" markets, but if the head honcos in NYC has any sense, one would think one would want to televise a game with the highest playoff implications.

I thought that only the Flyers, Rangers, Penguins, Bruins and Red Wings still played in the NHL. Are you telling me NBC and Versus are playing games with me?

Hey, Caps and Thrash were on last night, a SE division showdown! Oh, and you forgot the Slugs in your list. ;)

The Caps were on b/c of OV. I would imagine they would televise OV vs The Storm Squad and Dancing Granny

Versus messes us up again. Guess I will be settling for the radio. We have done well in some of the not televised games like shutting out Buffalo in Buffalo so hopefully that trend will continue. Did I mention I hate versus right now? :angry:

Don't know what to make of this but according to this blurb in the Miami Herald, there will be some type of pseudo-broadcast on Center Ice only. If it happens, it's better than nothing...

Dang...guess I will get to see the game then. Nice.

Kudos to the NHL for allowing this.

Can someone break this down for some of us that are less educated. I have CI does this mean I can see the game?

If one has Center Ice, one can get most games being played that night. There are some weird blackouts in not showing some of the games being played in Canda and a blackout of the HD telecast.

Does anyone live in the Greenville area and know when and where any Hurricanes games come on TV? I've found out in the past with other sports (Atlanta Braves mainly) that Eastern NC is usually treated much different than the rest of NC for some reason.

Maybe I can convince the wife to go eat out at a sports bar tomorrow after work and college just so we can see the game. Yeah, right. :rolleyes:
