Lyle emailed me and asked I let his readers know his site is having a few technical issues right now and he hopes to have it up shortly.

At first, the effect is dizzying: a sensory overload of images, facts and figures orbiting what amounts to picture-in-picture-in-picture-in-picture television. That it’s occurring on a computer monitor, rather than the flat-screen hanging on the living room wall, doesn’t decrease the feeling of digital claustrophobia.
Gradually, the charms of NHL GameCenter Live—the League’s Web- and subscription-based service that provides coverage of out-of-market games on a nightly basis—blow away any clouds of confusion.

The last ‘Rinkside View’ broadcast of Ducks games was last Sunday.
The Ducks met with FSN and the decision was made to discontinue the controversial telecasts for the rest of the season.
“It’s not something that’s overwhelmingly positive,” said Aaron Teats, Ducks director of broadcasting.

This news coming via an NBC Press Release:
CHICAGO — Dec. 31, 2008 — Hall of Fame broadcaster “Doc” Emrick will be unable to call tomorrow’s NHL Winter Classic due to laryngitis. Dave Strader, who is the play-by-play voice of the Phoenix Coyotes and has also worked for NBC Sports, will fill in for Emrick.
“Last year’s game was a lifetime memory and I couldn’t wait to call this year’s game at Wrigely,” said Emrick. “I’m extremely disappointed but I know Dave will do a wonderful job.”
