I've seen it many times in the past. Normally, D* will pull the MSG/MSG+ HD feeds out of the onscreen guide just before game time and if you tune to one of those channels, you get the D* logo and music. I am crossing my fingers that MSG will be alive and well in beautiful HD tonight on NHL CI.
Maybe Bettman will start the show off this evening with some glorious news since they get at least 1 call per week on the topic.
I agree I have seen it pulled many time too. I also had a chance to look through the DTV online guide (Not the Center Ice schedule) and as far out as it goes, the Center Ice Channels show all Rangers/Devils/Islanders/Sabres games available via MSG HD (when they are available in HD of course). This also has be wrong in the past too.
Here's to hoping..
