It appears that the NHL Network will air tonight’s Lidstrom jersey retirement ceremony

The Detroit Red Wings will retire Nicklas Lidstrom's jersey retirement ceremony at 6:30 PM EST this evening, a full 90 minutes before the Red Wings battle the Colorado Avalanche at 8, and the game will air on Fox Sports Detroit and Altitude sports locally, but the NHL Network U.S. has gobbled up the game's U.S. national TV rights.

It appears that the NHL Network will in fact air the pre-game ceremony:

Quoting the link:

Nick Lidstrom is not just a hero in Detroit but at the breakfast table too. #LidstromNight Tune-in to NHL Network (US) at 5PM for NHL Live AND to watch his ceremony before puck drop.

Well that *#$%@& everyone who has Center Ice, but no NHL network (which is nearly everyone with Center Ice).

FU NHL Network.

It also screws all of us using Gamecenter Live. I really don’t understand why the league can’t air NHL Network stuff on Gamecenter.

Thanks again, NHL, for taking my money and not providing the service I paid for. You suck.

Could call up your provider, add NHL Network for the day, then cancel it tomorrow.  The package I’m on only costs me an extra $8/month to have it all the time anyways.

for gamecenter live stuff, check out unotelly. pay server, with a trial, that will unblock the blackouts.

My question is when the hell do i set my Mythtv box to record this? The game is listed as 5pm PST. Before that shows reruns of NHL on the fly. I’m thinking i should just set the recording to start 2 hours early? so it start at 3 and i don’t miss anything?
