Ducks Fans Want Their HD

via Al Balderas of Ducks Blog,

A spokesperson for Fox Sports said that her office has been receiving a lot of emails from those of you who want their HDTV. Let’s just hope none of you are holding your breath.

While Fox Sports would like to bring you the games in the HD format, the spokesperson explained that “this economic climate has forced us to re-evaluate our plans. HD has been the most affected in this environment.”

The people at Fox apologize and hope you’ll continue to tune in.

Word Error

from Greg Wyshynski of Puck Daddy,

The awesomely named Roger Millions was reporting from Chicago last night for Sportsnet, setting the scene between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Calgary Flames before Game One. After mispronouncing the name of Flames defenseman Cory Sarich (it’s SAHR-ihch), Millions got a little self-critical of his performance—and dropped a tremendous profanity live on the air.

Serious, no-joke NSFW adult language warning on the YouTube clip.

Read and watch on.  At times, we all make mistakes and I am sure Roger would like to take that moment back.

Fans Decide What Is Worth Reading

from Tom Benjamin’s NHL Blog, .

..Anyway, I thought it was important to weigh in on whether HNiC should acknowledge the blogosphere in this way. Obviously, I think the answer is yes, but the show deserves a more thoughtful response than I could give in a few seconds.

Scott Morrison is right about the blogger who shall not be named, but he is wrong if he thinks ignoring the new hockey media is the answer to the accountability issue. Blogs are not going away simply because the mainstream media operates as if they don’t exist.

The accountability argument is more or less over. It really doesn’t matter whether it is a genuine problem or not because fans clearly don’t care about it. They know the internet. Most of them think they are capable of separating the wheat from the chaff on the web. They didn’t just fall off a turnip truck. They decide what’s worth reading.

Center Ice Replay

Bruce MacLeod of Red Wings Corner posted the following release he received today…

NEW YORK, April 15, 2009 –Tax Day has a bright side for hockey fans. Starting today, April 15, and through the second round of the playoffs, subscribers to the NHL Center Ice out-of-market package will receive replays of same day games. In this new enhancement which is free to customers, the NHL Center Ice package will re-air each current day’s game beginning approximately one hour after the live game ends so that fans can see games they might have missed. Each game will replay in its entirety and will repeat continuously overnight and the next day, on the same channel, until the following day’s live games begin.

The “Replay Game” feature means that there will be approximately 4-5 replays for single, scheduled games. Live games scheduled back-to-back will be replayed in that same order, so that there will be approximately 2-3 replays before game-time the following day. No games will be bumped from the package to accommodate replay games. Blackout and other restrictions apply.

I haven’t heard anything about this, how about you?

Hey DIRECTV

I sure would like to DVR the NHL playoff games, but find it kind of difficult when ‘No Title Available’ on all Center Ice channels for tonight!

Game 2 Wings/Blue Jackets On NHL Network

via Puck The Media,

Thanks to Schuyler Baehman of the NHL’s Communications Dep’t and all-around good guy (and who’s Twitter feed you should check out) for sending this along to us, as we’ve been hoping for this for quite some time:

  In the first time of NHL Network U.S.’s history, it will broadcast a Stanley Cup Playoff game by airing live Game 2 of the 2009 Stanley Cup Conference Quarter-Final match-up between the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Detroit Red Wings from Detroit on Saturday, April 18 @ 6pm ET. 

  Locally, Fox Sports Detroit and Fox Sports Ohio will broadcast this game live as previously scheduled.  NHL Network will be blacked out in those local markets.

Talking Playoff Hockey

I was just on The War Room on NHL Home Ice XM 204 and we talked about the playoffs.

I always enjoy talking hockey with Dan Blakeley and Mick Kern and appreciate the duo for coming to me and allowing my thoughts to be heard.

Part 1 of the interview, Part 2 of the interview.

The Playoff Coverage At KK

The vast majority of bloggers at KK will be blogging away during the Conference Quarter Finals.

Bethany’s Hockey Rants will be providing Columbus coverage, The Goal Line Report covers the New York Rangers, Mike Chen normally blogs the NHL in general, but deep down is a San Jose Sharks fan, Red & Black Hockey follows the Carolina Hurricanes and The Confluence provides all the Pittsbugh Penguins news that you want.

The Puck Stops here will be chiming in on NHL topics and the SENSHobo will be too.

Abel to Yzerman provides Detroit Red Wings coverage while taking a unique view of their opponents.  Canucks & Beyond gives you your Vancouver Canucks prospective in only the way Alanah can.

As you can see, everyone here at KK will be busy and many hope to be very busy for the next two months or so.

Bloggers On HNIC Stanley Cup Playoff Preview

In case you missed it, Alanah has posted the blogger segment of the HNIC Playoff Preview Show they did last night.

Although we had only about six minutes of air time, we were able to touch on a few hockey topics.

I had fun, my first time on TV and as the producer in Windsor said, ‘just look into the red light.”  With that statement, let the playoffs begin!
