I don't know. I was in Ohio last week. 30 miles outside of Columbus. At a sports bar that has DirecTV CI. Had to basically bribe the manager to get them to turn one TV to the Blackhawks game. All 20-25 TVs had basketball games on.

Hockey fans are certainly enjoying this season and I hope we grow so more fans. But I think hockey has years to go before it is at the forefront of sports in the US.

Fun game tonight. Thought it was going to be another OT game.

I don't disagree with that statement, personally. In fact, I don't know if hockey will ever be as popular as the 4 major sports. However, the Blackhawks are certainly making it more popular and creating quite a buzz. It's nice to see a team with such a storied history being the ones creating this.

Figures, too--6 months after I move out of the area, they decide to turn it on. :P

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

I see two endings..

1) The Blackhawks do a monster stomp through the rest of the season and cruise through the playoffs winning the Cup and this season literally goes down in history.

2) The Blackhawks stumble in the playoffs and are remembered in the same breath with the New England Patriots of a few years ago who won every game except the last one (Super Bowl).

Well you pretty much covered all the bases with that statement.

Whatever happens, it's nice to see something positive about hockey,and in particular the Hawks getting national attention, even if it's not as much as it would be if it was football or basketball. After a lockout, no better way to have people forget it ever happened.

NHLPA agrees to new realignment proposal this afternoon. BOG has to approve, but that should just be a formality.

Well, we knew it wouldn't last forever. Funny, I texted a buddy of mine before this game tonight against Colorado, saying that I had a very bad feeling about this game.

As a blues fan I am happy that the b-hawks got beat and BAD.
As a hockey fan I am a little disappointed because ESPN will now go back to only putting 2 minutes and no it an entire 10 minute segment like it is now.

Any hockey fan who depends on ESPN for hockey coverage is either misguided,delusional or a masochist.(not saying you are,just how bad they suck at it)
I haven't watched ESPN in years and if I could remove it from my Directv package I would.

That is not what I am meaning. I have the NHL network but since most sports fans just watch ESPN it would be great if they put a few more highlights on. Do they have to put lebron James on every 5 minutes.

Anyone happen to see the current issue of Sports Illustrated? Hockey fans will like the cover; Blackhawks fans will love the cover. :)

Speaking of dem Hawks--they unleashed a can of whoop-@ss against the Stars last night. 8-1 the final score. Yowzer! :eek2:

And if I hadn't taken a last minute game to work, I was going to drive up to Dallas to attend that game. Figures I'd miss a romp.

Looks like we got a CSN-Philly HD feed tonight for the Flyers game, might be a back haul feed from Montreal.

I noticed a scroll on the bottom of NBCSN that said the Stanley Cup Playoffs begin in 8 days..... Still hoping the Wings make it in
