Default Time for NBC to stop lying ...

That they are bringing every game of these playoffs to us.

They are so proud of their 4 channels that are showing every game, but now, 2 nights in a row, both games are on only one channel, the first game goes into overtime, and the second game is NOT shown...

In the meantime, CNBC continues to show crap...

I wonder if the ratings are tanking? Hard to believe because the quality of games this season has been off the charts - and if you try to focus on Emrick and Jonesy and avert your eyes from Milbury and Maguire it's even better.

I was really hoping Pierre would get the Montreal GM job so I never had to hear him talk about active sticks again

Reason #1 to live in Canada: ALL playoff games on national tv

nbc has been a joke this playoff season, the simple fact they have today's Caps/NYR game on at 1230 is a total farce. I know for a fact the start time is all driven by them, the Caps wanted the game later in the day. No Saturday night hockey today 5 May is a total joke- I know about the Derby and all but a 730 puck drop would have been ideal. Folks have lives and stuff to do, would really like to have a reasonable explanation on what NBC is thinking.

Plenty of people still find time to watch NFL regular and post season games and college games that start at 1 or noon. Guess they figure if you are a fan you can find time to watch a PLAYOFF game during the day as well. Seems reasonable enough to me.

Problem is hockey games have started at 7:00 on a Saturday night for 80 years now. The NFL has played day games for years now.

I hate what NBC and the nhl have done. They have ruined Hockey Night in Canada, the greatest hockey show on earth. No longer can we Canadians watch playoff hockey at 7:00 on a Saturday night. Now they're at 12:30 on a Sunday. Really sucks.

You're out of your mind. Playoff hockey is the next greatest thing to sex.

The Bruins are out and I still find myself glued to the TV...

When the Celtics, Red Sox, or Patriots get eliminated I don't care anymore but playoff hockey is just so damn exciting no matter who is playing.
