Some Canadian Playoff Hockey Stuff

On the eve of the race for the 2008 Stanley Cup, the award-winning CBC Digital Archives Website has launched the Top 10 NHL Playoff Moments—an online collection that pays tribute to some of the most memorable playoff moments in National Hockey League history.  Some really amazing footage there.  (And unlike some other video material on CBC, it can be viewed by browsers outside of Canada, which is nice.)

Also at CBC, some stuff that probably won’t make it into history’s digital archives:  What’s Your Playoff Ritual?  (It was this video caught my eye especially; the world ugliest—and yet most awesome?—hockey basement.)

Anyway, to open up the first round of the playoffs, below you’ll find the scheduling info for TSN (sharp new website design, btw) and CBC.

TSN will be broadcasting these first round series for Canadian viewers (times PT - full schedule here):

Wednesday, April 9     Game 1: NY Rangers @ New Jersey 4pm
Wednesday, April 9 Game 1: Colorado @ Minnesota 6:30pm
Thursday, April 10 Game 1: Nashville @ Detroit 4pm
Thursday, April 10 Game 1: Dallas @ Anaheim 7pm
Friday, April 11 Game 1: Philadelphia @ Washington 4pm


From CBC, the three Canadian series will be broadcast (times PT - full schedule here):

Wednesday, April 9 Game 1: Ottawa @ Pittsburgh 4pm
Wednesday, April 9,  Game 1: Calgary @ San Jose 7pm
Thursday, April 10 Game 1: Boston @ Montreal 4pm

CBC is also providing an area for live chat on the site over the playoffs. (I can’t see where exactly—maybe I’m just blind—but it’s there somewhere).

In addition to writing Canucks & Beyond and helping manage Kukla's Korner, Alanah was one of the founders and co-hosts of The Crazy Canucks Podcast. She has contributed pieces to FoxSports.com and the New York Times Slapshot blog, as well as other stray destinations in cyberspace.
