Open Post- Hockey In August

Our game is back and it will be interesting to see how quickly teams get into their playoff mode.  I imagine the quicker the better for all involved.

Today's schedule can be found here and feel free to use this post for all the games today.

The Stanley Cup Playoffs march is about to start.

Howdy all.
What a horrible picture. Having flashbacks of watching games on channel 50 and trying to twist the aluminum foil in the best way possible. Get your poop in a group NBC. Rant over. PS. You can walk on my lawn if ya have beer.  wink

..What a horrible picture

I am watching on my Roku via the NBC sports app and the picture is NOT the best HD quality.

I stream games on my Roku from the NHL app and those games are crystal clear.

My conspiracy theory is this: NBC’s parent company is Comcast. My guess is they would prefer you watch (and pay extra) via the HD tier of cable service.

I watch Wings games via the Fox sports app and the picture is stunning. NBC is intentionally using a lesser quality codec to stream….. sick

I’m trying to watch on my home tv via spectrum cable. The exhibition games on NHL Network were fine during the week. Today? Not too good.

Let’s Go Red W…. oh wait never mind.

It’s looking good on Youtube TV, though I did have to manually select the higher-resolution stream.

AA played the fewest minutes of any Oiler forward…..on the plus side (no pun intended) his +/- is even, unlike mcdavids -3

God I hate that Blackhawks goal song.

So do , but there is a silver lining. If the Slackhawks win against the Oilers, they won’t have a chance at the number one pick. Also hoping Crybaby wins the first round. They can both lose after that. LOL

It’s been truly disorienting sitting outside in 80 degree temps watching hockey, but I’m super glad to have the luxury.  What a great Saturday.
