I'd love to be watching Minnesota at Chicago in glorious HD on NBC Sports Channel, but my provider (Charter) has broadcast something else this evening, relegating the game to a second tier channel.

So, is anyone else having this problem? I'm particularly interested in the other Wisconsin Ws, as well as those in Chicago and Minnesota. I know my brother in Madison, also Charter, has the same issue.

It's "blacked out" for us because it's on Fox Sports North. (Oh, and it just ended, so moot point.)

Too late for last nights games, but there is an NBC extra app that you can watch the games on.

Had my iPhone plugged into my TV to overcome my lack of coverage.

Bleeping Charter is at it again tonight. Tonight at least they have the decency to have a pre-recorded announcement when you call to advise you that it's blacked out.

Of course, they tell me it's due to the network. We'll see if I get an answer from the network on why someone in a different TV market from either team is getting the game blacked out. I'm convinced it's a Charter issue where they can't get their switching done right.

Hey Guru - If you see this, can your cable background offer any help?

I don't understand what they are doing. Wait on the line and talk to a car to get an explanation.

Their explanation is that the game is blacked out on many locations across the country. They can't or won't provide me with any specifics, other than 'it's a network decision.

I get the same response with any person on the line.

I was going to start this thread for you but figured you ought to celebrate. Phaneuf isn't going to win the Calder but Kiprusoff seems to be a shoe-in for the Vezina and a probable Hart finalist. Edmonton really needs to move up to 7, don't you think?...
