Comcast clarifies alternate viewing options for Game 6

As noted earlier this morning, Metroit Detroit-based hockey fans who want to watch Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final between the Boston Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks tonight at 8 PM have a bit of a pickle on their hands. WDIV has chosen to air a huge moneymaker in the Ford Fireworks instead, and the game will air on WADL 38 as a result.

Most folks get WADL on their cable or satellite providers (even my crappy cable company has it), NBC Sports has a streaming website that should work for most of you who don't get WADL, and there is always the option of watching the CBC for many fans...

But I know that Metro Detroit is also mostly "Comcast Country" in terms of cable distribution, and they don't usually have WADL in their lineup. Thankfully, they've issued a press release stating that they'll air the game this evening:

Man, I wish I could see the fireworks from my PC here in Vegas.
