Red Wings-Maple Leafs pre-season game thread, bootleg version: whatever works, works

The Detroit Red Wings will be dressing the vast majority of their NHL roster when they host the Toronto Maple Leafs this evening (7:30 PM EDT), but unless you happen to live in Ontario and subscribe to Leafs TV, you won't be able to see the game...Legally.

Fox Sports Detroit isn't airing the game against the Tigers-Marlins tilt, and Ken Kal and Paul Woods' call of the game can only be heard over-the-air as WXYT 1270's audio stream does not broadcast Wings games in the preseason.

Tomorrow's game in Toronto (7 PM EDT)--which will likely ice the Wings' "B Team" against the Leafs' NHL roster--will air on Hockey Night in Canada and the NHL Network U.S., but I also know that those of you who won't be watching the Grand Rapids Griffins play the Lake Erie Monsters at Compuware Arena in Plymouth, or won't be attending the Hockeytown BrewHaHa don't all have access to the CBC or the NHL Network U.S. (I can access the former but not the latter)...

So tonight and tomorrow, I'm encouraging those of you who want to watch tonight's tilt (the game summary, event summary and roster report are already up) or tomorrow's affair to share your means by which you plan on viewing the game...By any quasi-legal or illegal means necessary.

I sure as hell don't want to not be able to see tonight's game because I'm neither at the Joe nor in a part of Oakland County that receives 1270 AM once the sun sets (they have to reduce their wattage, seriously), so I'm going to be checking First Row Sports, Justin.tv and even LiveTV.ru to find a way to watch tonight's game.

I did post some legitimate media in the game-day thread, including Chris Osgood speaking with the Fan 590's Greg Brady this morning...

And Ken Holland speaking with TSN 1050's David Naylor yesterday evening...

But the rest of this thread falls into the, "Whatever works, we're going to pretend that it's legal" realm, and both I and many Wings fans could use your help in trying to watch a tilt that the broadcasters in charge regrettably decided wouldn't be profitable on a Friday night's worth of high school football and major league baseball in late September.

Are CBC streaming this? If so download Hola, it will mask your IP address so the CBC site thinks you are in Canada and thus eligible to watch.

No, it’s just Leafs TV, and they’re not streaming it. They’re just airing it on their cable channel (it’s Fox Sports Detroit if FSD only aired Red Wings programming).

The Wings defense this preseason is looking a lot like the defense from the last year, letting people behind them all the time.

These guys look like they haven’t played together in terms of their flat-footedness defensively…Because they haven’t played together yet.

Batting the puck out of play in the neutral zone is a penalty now?

Howard’s been very good and Andersson and Bertuzzi are super sharp.

nor in a part of Oakland County that receives 1270 AM once the sun sets (they have to reduce their wattage, seriously)

This is a thing with most all AM stations.  It’s mandated by the FCC.

I’ve worked at 3 different AM stations that had to reduce their wattage at sunset.  Has something to do with the way the signal absolutely BOOMS come nighttime anyways.  There’s a reason that at night, back in the day, you could pick up AM stations all over the country on a good night.  The AM signal flourishes in nighttime conditions.

So in order to avoid them all interfering with one another, you drop your level at night.
