Hockey Playoffs Open With a Personal Thud

I love hockey, and I believe I saw all but a dozen or so Red Wing games on television this year. Eighty two games is a lot of games, and I have watched a lot of hockey.

So the playoffs are here, and Detroit has won the President's Cup as having the most points at the end of the regular season. I was very excited about tonight's game against Edmonton, a formidable opponent.

Until of course I discovered that I will not be able to watch the game on television.

The NHL and the Red Wings have decided that the playoffs are not as interesting as the regular season, so they have scheduled tonight's game on local Detroit television (with no outstate coverage) or on OLN, a network that is not available on Dish Network.

Thanks guys!

Hey!, rougman.
I, too, am hyped about tonight's opener!
The difference is I'll be able to watch it LIVE!

(I'd offer to send you a tape but it'll get there after the 2nd game on Sunday so I would imagine you'll pass on that offer.)
(You do get NBC don't you?!? lol!)
