I haven't seen anything showing the regions. If anyone is interested in finding the game in their area, you can use this [link] to Zap-2-It. Enter your zip code the date and time and it will show what game is on NBC.

Interestingly, Ken Daniels will call the SJ/DET game that most of the country is showing.

Thanks, it's good to see NBC has some sense as I think SJ/Detroit is the best looking matchup of the day, in fact they probably should have had this be the full national game.

It is the best matchup. But they made some odd choices. For instance, Milwaukee will not see the Hawks. Where I live in Northeastern Ohio, we're in the Penguins TV market and we used to be in the Sabres market but we're getting the SJ/DET game. Historically, that doesn't make much sense as the Pens are the most popular team here although the Wings do have a loyal group of fans in the region. Just seems strange that you can be in a team's TV market, yet we're not receiving their games regionally on NBC.

You don't have to go far from Milwaukee to be able to pick it up on OTA.
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

Trying to get ready to watch the Sabres game via streaming video and its so unclear as to where to get the link to it. The NBC sports website is one of the worst websites I've ever dealt with. They have an article "NBCSports.com to Stream Hockey Day in America". And on the home page "Hockey Day In America, watch the games live online Sunday". You would think it would have the links to the games embedded in those articles. Ora link you could easily find on the home page or NHL home page, but its nowhere to be found.

I'm thinking that last year it was on , but I think its on NHL Game Center Live, so that's what I plan to try.

Wow, if thats what the picture looks like on NHL Game Center, I'll never go that route. A far cry fro MSG HD on DIRECTV.

It depends on how fast your connection is. The quality on my laptop is pretty good for streaming the game.

It looks decent on my laptop, but not on my 50" flat screen. Its the game I wish was on the local telecast, but have to watch streaming.

The SJ/Det game on WXIA (Atlanta) was horrible. Fuzzy/grainy with any camera movement.

Couldn't care less. The "HD" quality provided by NBC's online player is really subpar, even compared to GCL. (And yes, I was receiving the maximum bitrate stream @ 2.1 Mbit)

The actual TV broadcasts (I had the chance to see Buffalo/Pittsburgh and Detroit/San Jose) looked excellent.

The TV broadcast looked excellent, the streaming feed was sub-par. Especially in comparison to the broadcast HD feed.
