The NHL Network U.S. will broadcast Saturday’s Chicago at Phoenix game, joining in progress immediately following the conclusion of Montreal at Toronto. Both telecasts are available in HD.

The Blackhawks (45-19-6) and Coyotes (44-22-5) are in a battle for first overall in the Western Conference with San Jose and Vancouver. The four teams are currently separated by three points. In the race for the Pacific Division title, Phoenix is three points behind San Jose.

Phoenix Coyotes President and Chief Operating Officer Douglas Moss announced Thursday that the game against Chicago at Jobing.com Arena is sold out. In addition, the arena doors will open at 4:30 p.m. local time, thirty minutes earlier than normal, to accommodate the fans. The game begins at 6 p.m.

Phoenix, which set a franchise record with its 44th win of the season on Thursday, is attempting to qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time since 2001-02.

This game is among the highlights of NHL Network’s free preview week in the U.S., running March 20-27. With participating networks of the free preview including Comcast, DIRECTV, Dish Network, Time Warner Cable, Cox and RCN Cable, NHL Network will be available in 60 million homes across the country. Fans are encouraged to check their local listings for details. This free preview is subject to participation cable or satellite providers.

NHL Network will just kill the good DD 5.1 on CSN CHI down to there DD 2.0. People in Chicago are better off just viewing it on CSN CHI.
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

Thanks BlackHawkZone for the update.

Having read the replies, it's so nice to see, once again, the glass here is never, ever half full.

Are the original RSN feeds still going to be available on NHL CI? I much prefer watching the RSN's feed rather than the NHL Networks dumbing down of the same feed.

Also, I wish NHLN would show the full HNIC Doubleheader instead of just the east coast first game. Eff the east coast :P

Well there are two ways to get the after hours show, at least on Dish system, you can get the SD version which will run after the Wings game or you can catch the rebroadcast of the game and the after hours in HD on NHL network on Sunday after noon your choice.

Yeah, a bad move to show two of the top three teams in the West. What were they thinking?

I missed the entire first period of Yotes/Hawks since the game was removed from CI. No way to watch it. :mad:

Hell of an ending, though!

The NHL Network should have allowed the CI broadcasts to go ahead at least until they picked it up completely.
