Questions For Your Live Blog

When is anyone outside of Detroit going to recognize the fact that the officiating in this series has cost the Wings the first two games?

One Trick Thid and the Pens are listed at 1900 on OLN.  Wings are listed at 1930.  What game will I get to see if I only have Gary’s closed-circuit tv station?

Updated: Here’s your answer to the VS question.  Conspiracy? No. Just more obvious bias toward Gary’s Baby Boy.

From Jennemy of the Skate in the comments below:

The whole nation will be watching Pittsburgh Vs Montreal and the San Jose /Wings game will be JIP (Joined in Progress).

If you take a look at the versus schedule (Above link) you will see that not a single Penguins game is JIP.

With curiosity, I asked the young lady what drives their viewing schedule and was shocked by her response…..“The NHL tell us which games to air and that all Penguins games are to be shown live.”

 

 

Why aren’t I as nervous as I should be, with the Wings down 0-2?  I’ll answer that one: because they’re a better team than the Sharks and because Nabokov has shown me nothing. The only advantage San Jose’s demonstrated has been the two-man variety, and it won them both games.

Who is going to step up tonite?  Nick Lidstrom, Pavel Datsyuk and Hank Zetterberg.  Because it’s what they do.

What happens now?  Wings win tonite.  What happens Thursday. Wings win then too bitch. 

And then?  Well we’ll just see won’t we.

All I really know is this:  1:19 seconds, plus the officials, did the Wings in on Thursday.  The officials, hired and directed by Little Gary Bettman, violated Detroit again on Sunday. Will they pull the same tricks at the Joe? Most likely.  But desperation has always bred success in Detroit so I’m saying they’ll win in spite of another obvious shaft job.  And then they’ll win again in Game 4.  This series goes back to NoCal tied up, and it’s not because of Jebus or providence or puppies or hookers on fire trucks.  It’s because the Wings do well when they’re pissed and that they most definitely must be.

Live blog it.

Double posted from the last post:

Guess what out of market Wings’ fans. We get the game joined in progress. FUCH Bettman. I just confirmed this on the phone with Versus.

I just got off the phone with a representative from Versus and asked her which game they would be showing tonight in my local market. (I am in North West Ohio, about 120 miles south Detroit but don’t get FSD)
The whole nation will be watching Pittsburgh Vs Montreal and the San Jose /Wings game will be JIP (Joined in Progress).

If you take a look at the versus schedule (Above link) you will see that not a single Penguins game is JIP.

I am from the Detroit area and work away from home in Ohio. I am almost 300 miles from Pittsburgh but that doesn’t seem to matter. If you live in California and don’t get the local feed and are hoping to watch the game on Versus, you are screwed too and will be watching CINDY FREAKIN CROSBY because Uncle Gary has sooooo much invested in him. Suprise, suprise if they win the cup again

And the officiating cost the Devils two games, too, just ask any Devils beat reporter or player or coach or video coordinator or fan. I don’t see them re-playing those games or turning back the clock. The Wings still have 5 games to overcome the bad officiating and get the job done. They still have a chance.

Repost from the last thread about Center Ice not showing the Wings game.  I hope I’m not wrong here:

My Center Ice channels say I’ve got the game.  Versus doesn’t have exclusivity rights to any more games in this series.  Center Ice may not compete with the Versus feed (I do remember them blacking out as soon as Versus switched over to a CHI/NAS game in round 1), but they’ll be showing our game as long as the Pens/Habs are on Gary’s Channel.

And the NHL wonders why it’s so hard for them to get a TV contract or for them to get viewers. You can’t get viewers if you’re not showing the effing game. How hard is it to to show two games a night. You don’t see this with any other sport.

J.J. I hope you’re right. The woman at Versus told me it would only be on Versus or FSD. But hopefully Center Ice will have the FSD feed. I’m just so fuching nuclear mad right now.

they already show rosby-only commercials during intermission and he’s usually the focus of the intermission report even if the pens are not playing.

i have a friend down here who has watched one hockey game in the last 10 years- the gold medal game. and he hates rosby as much as any of us do. after just one game he was saying “damn, is there no one else on the team? get the camera off that guy for 1 second…”

You’re more than welcome any time for a Wings game.  Added bonus: if Center Ice is blacked out and I have to go with an online feed, my computer is hooked up to my 58” plasma.  It’ll be grainy, but it’ll be big.

hookers on fire trucks

Yeah, but they won’t hurt either.  At least, as long as Happy is keeping them away from the locker room until the Wings get the job done and beat the Zebras and their sharts.

I have been able to watch every single game that has been on. Either on center ice, vs. or CSN. The only time my center ice has been blocked out is for Chickenhawk games. Then I just have to watch the CSN feed or whatever it is here in Chicago. I really doubt that it will not be on Center Ice. Not to say your wrong or anything Jen, I just think the woman you were talking to was misinformed.  I fuching hope so anyway.

My question is if they have Daryl Reaugh as the color guy on Versus and they only end up showing 30 minutes of the game, will he only get paid for 30 minutes?

I hate that guy.

I feel sorry for all you Americans when this stuff happens. It’s so easy in Canada: CBC, TSN, or TSN2. If there are game overlaps, both those channels have the games streaming on their sites.

Yeah there was 1 game in the first round that I didn’t get to see on VS, since the Penguins were on at the same time.  So there was 1 game I had to catch on the paysite so far, tonight will be another.

Remember when the CBC wasn’t broke and didn’t get outbid by competing networks and carried EVERY series,  thus making any lack of coverage by U.S. networks irrelevant.  red face

Ever wonder from where does the NHL recruit its referees?

I found out where: the Franklin, TN police department.

In the midst of a large scale natural distaster, it is mind boggling that the local PD would waste any time on these kids other than a verbal warning. Handcuffed and arrested? Sheesh.

Oh and it’s a good the litlle brother beat bubba because Bubbas arena is under several feet of water.
