    Are you guys ready for some Stanley Cup playoff hockey?

    The teams and schedule have been set. Looks like they're going to be using CNBC a lot. If I were D* I would temporally mirror CNBC to channel 219 or 221 next to NBCSN so no one misses a game.

    And where is our NBC Sports app support, how come D* isn't one of the supported providers?

    Its going to be an exciting two months. :)

    With the back to back games on NBC Sports Network, how are the inevitable overtime games being handled? Will the second game start on another channel or just be joined in progress?

    Thats a good question, but if I recall right, I think last year they used CNBC and MSNBC as backups.

    I took a second look at the schedule and saw that CNBC has some doubleheaders as well, so they are out for some nights (like Thursday).

    Last year DirecTV carried the alternate feeds for NBC Sports when there was a back to back game. You could watch the west coast feed in its entirety on the alternate, but the main channel would JIP if they couldn't hold the start of the later game for an overtime in the first.

    Any word if DirecTV will be carrying the alternates now that they've moved the channel up to 220?

    I haven't heard anything official, but I guess they could put it on 221 if needed. I still like the idea of mirroring CNBC to 219 during games.

    I wonder what NBC execs were thinking today when the Caps/Rangers game went into overtime. I didn't see any contingency plans announced by NBC like they did in previous years.

    I'm sure one of them would have moved to NBCSN.

    Yes, Hockey. NBC's announced plan for the past three years was to carry two OTs on NBC and if the games went any longer, they would shift the game to CNBC.

    Of course you can compare this to the Frozen Four this year. The Championship game was joined in progress about 7 minutes late by ESPN -- they had a college softball game on in the top of the last inning. They finally moved that softball game to another channel.

    Another OT game now. I wonder if they'll put the MINN/CHI game on another channel until the PIT/NYI game ends?

    Looks like we're getting CBC HNIC coverage on the NHLN. Lets see if they give us the intermission stuff.

    I know its been nine years since Toronto hosted a playoff game, but I think the crowds in the street are a bit much. You'd think this was their national sport or something.

    I feel sorry for the people in Detroit having to watch game 7 starting at 10pm EST. It should have been scheduled as an afternoon game.

    NBCSN Alt is active tonight with Detroit/Annaheim game as Boston Toronto runs over. DirecTV 221-1

    I wonder if the entire game will be on the Alt channel? I want to record the game.

    The main thing is that the Wings won. If they have the same results with the Hawks, another Cup is on the way.

    S. C. Am -- that is an awfully big IF. Chicago has been incredible all season long.

    I'll be rooting for the Wings, but I'm not going to be betting any money on them.
