    There has usually been one HD feed of an early game plus the late game on NHLCI and sometimes another on the NHL Network. However not all of the early games are covered in HD or at all for that matter.

    The game is listed in the 700's in SD & HD. Is this the canadian feed or WGN?

    This most certainly will be the late game of Saturday's CBC / HNIC triple header. Flyers v. Jets at 3:00 Eastern, Caps v. Leafs at 7, followed by the Hawks v. Oilers at 10.

    D* has typically used 770 and 770-1 for HNIC telecasts.

    For the last 3 weeks we have - finally - been getting the entire HNIC Saturday broadcast in HD.

    i for one am extremely happy with directv's HD growth in the past years. at first msg wasnt even in hd, no games in canada were...now we are seeing more and more games (even canadien vs canadien teams) msg+2, etc almost every game every night has an HD feed, and sometimes two.

    i wonder if in a few years we will all be complaining about the lack of 3D hockey games on center ice?

    I have less than no interest in 3D. Really do not want to think the puck is flying into my house. I would be perfectly happy if we got the last few canadian feeds in HD. I would have nothing more to complain about!

    I agree but i wouldnt mind seeing it once, since i know msg did at least one or two rangers games in the past. Im sure they invested a lot in equipment i would think they would use it more often

    From one Devil's fan to another a question: What happened to "Doc" Emmerick? All we get is Cangiolosi. I thought he might have been on assinment (VS etc) but it seems every game we are without I think the best play by play announcer in all of hockey.....
    GO DEVILS (especially in glorius HD)

    Sens/Flames game tonight and no HD. Looks like pure excrement as well. No matter where the feed comes from, there is no excuse as to why EVERY game isn't brought to us in HD. I know, I know dead horse, but it's still frustrating especially for us fans of Western Canadian hockey teams.

    Yeah we all agree with you. InDemand has the game in HD, don't why D* doesn't.

    So on my blackout front, things are getting better. I've not been blacked out now for a little while now. I've been able to see last four the Rangers on MSG.

    It ONLY seems to occur when either Versus or The NHL Network carry a Rangers game. In this case, I get blacked out of BOTH the Versus/NHLNet telecast and MSGHD(dunno if SD also but no way to check other than reseting my channel lists on the receiver). The last one was the Montreal game last week on Saturday. I'm assuming it's gonna happen again this Saturday too.

    Why the heck is this? I don't get it.
