50 Years Behind The Mask

You can watch the show on November 1st at 7:00pm ET on the NHL Network.

added 1:02pm, from Shawn P. Roarke of NHL.com,

Today, goalie masks are part of the fabric of professional hockey, designed to not only protect the wearer from injury, but also as an artistic vehicle to express the goalie’s creativity and entertain millions of hockey fans.

But there was a time—not so long ago—when such protective measures were seen as not only unnecessary, but as an affront to the game.

Trouble With Cable Providers

From Craig Custance at the Sporting News:

By moving the game to the NHL Network, in an attempt to give it more exposure, the league shut out a large number of Center Ice subscribers. Up until last week, I had DirecTV, which includes the NHL Network as part of its digital package. I learned, apparently along with a lot of fans, that Comcast doesn’t include the NHL Network in its basic digital package - even if you ponied up the bucks for Center Ice. Now, I need to get the NHL Network anyways, so I didn’t mind calling Comcast and bumping up a package for another $8 a month. But by the time we got it ironed out, it was 2-0 New Jersey.

Like a lot of hockey fans, I was part angry, part confused. So this morning, I called the league for an explanation.

It was explained to me that putting the game on NHL Network made the game like any other nationally televised hockey game, which means it wasn’t available on Center Ice. Usually that’s not an issue, because you can just turn on NBC or Versus and watch it. But for those of us who didn’t get NHL Network, it became an issue. But the league assured me that it wasn’t some underhanded tactic to get people to pay more money for extra cable coverage. In fact, it’s the opposite.
