    The NHL site used to do that, now it is only by team.

    I have it in an excel CSV file which can be imported into most calendars. I can post it here, but I won't be back at my desk until later tonight and I'll have to convert it from eastern into mountain -- if you want it. Just PM me.

    bnwrx -- As discussed, her it is. It is in .XLS format (can't upload CSV files). So depending your calendar software, you might have to open this file and save as CSV.

    FYI, I just got an email from GCL customer support, the PS3 app should be ready by the end of the month.

    bnwrx -- try the attached file.
    1 - download file.
    2 - rename file so extension is ics (not xls)
    3 - open Sunbird
    4 - under File tab, select Open Calendar File (or CTRL+O)
    5 - navigate to where you saved the file and select.

    You Sunbird calendar should be populated with all the games (with MTN time)

    bnwrx -- Try this one since ICS is obviously smarter than I am. Same instructions from above.

    1 - download file.
    2 - rename file so extension is ics (not xls)
    3 - open Sunbird
    4 - under File tab, select Open Calendar File (or CTRL+O)
    5 - navigate to where you saved the file and select.

    Anyone know the correct start time for Sunday's Wild/Blues game?

    The NHL website lists the game at 8 PM ET. However, DirecTV's guide for NBCSN has the game at 6 PM ET (two hours earlier).

    The best place to (usually) go is the home team's site. St. Louis says 7pm and I believe they are in Central time zone, so adjust accordingly.

    [EDIT: Having said that, I've have found that game on four different web sites at three different start times. I'd keep checking the sites. Maybe a local St. Louis newspaper (if they have any left) will have some game-day info including the actual start time.]

    I know this post is beating a dead horse, but....

    Watching Rangers - Flyers on NHLN (No Hockey Logic Network )..

    At times the score is on 3 different parts of the screen - T H R E E ! ! ! !

    It continues to be the poorest excuse for a TV network - E V E R !!!

    PS: I know I'll catch hell from Flyer fans here, but their play by play guy sounds like Jerry Seinfeld, dizzy from riding the Tilt-a-Whirl...

    Just wondering what smartphone apps fans are using to track NHL.

    I'm using CBC Hockey Night in Canada for iOS (also available in Android, Windows and Blackberry phones). Pretty slick App (and free). Just doesn't give me any alerts (game starts, scores, etc.).

    The IIHF app that I used during the World Juniors had that feature, although my wife hated the USA game start alerts going off a 4AM!

    I've been one of hockey's biggest fans since 1965, when only the The Original Six existed.

    And the game today is better than ever - the speed and skill of today's players is amazing.

    But there is one thing I will never be able to understand. It is beyond stupid.

    Can someone explain to me why...

    1) A game decided in 60 minutes has a value of 2 points

    2) A game decided in 65 minutes or shootout has a value of 3 points

    I cannot fathom how any league can justify this total nonsense.

    Now, unless it's a game featuring my favorite team - New York Rangers - I find myself changing channels away from any game headed into OT.

    This rule stinks of the "Everyone Gets a Medal" philosophy so prevalent today.

    I understand the NHL's desire for every match to have a "winner". But how can you have a "winner" in every game, when every game does not have a "loser"?

    Stupid, idiotic, moronic....

    i agree - simple - 2 points for a win - zero for a loss - regardless of how it occurs. please no 3-2-1 point system either!

    also- with the new glove on the puck during faceoff penalty you now have 3 ways to call glove on puck/hand pass:

    1- hand pass in defensive zone (by defensive team) - no whistle, no penalty
    2- hand pass elsewhere - whistle and face off
    3- hand pass by center during faceoff - penalty

    ridiculous - i'd be happy with no hand pass allowed anywhere. no penalty, just faceoff.

    i think i would rather see the NHL go to the 3-point system the IIHF uses for the international tournaments places greater empishs on winning in regulation.

    Yes it is a annoying system. I haven't watched a shootout in yrs.

    But because of the "wisdom" of Bettman and the BOG we are stuck with it.

    They decided the fans deserved more than a tie after watching 6o minutes of hockey,and needed the shootout to decide a winner withih a certain amount of time for tv broadcasters

    Has anybody in this long thread addressed the fact that with all of the games on NHL Network this season it really devalues the NHLCI package? Example, tonight they carried Caps at Pens. If the game isn't on NHL Network I can choose which feed. With it on NHL Network both feeds are blacked out on their regular channels and NHL gives me Pitt feed. This has happened several times this season. It would be different if NHLN sent its own announcing team and did their own telecast. But all it does is choose one local feed. I don't want to hear Paul Steigerwald and his gang. It's great if you don't have NHLCI but for us loyal subscribers it sucks. :( :mad:

    Unfortunately it has been that way for years. Same thing happens when the games are on the networks on the weekends. But it doesn't bother me as much as the lack of Canadian HD games. That is my main issue, and may cause me to go to GC next year if it doesn't change soon.

    ...not to mention NHL Network's obnoxiously intrusive scrolling at the bottom of the screen.
