Its March 29th and the Wild and other teams are battling to get into post season play, the Red Wings are desparate to consolidate their position - and NHL Network has some bs reruns and recaps on. Not one game on a Friday night? I have a bizzillion ESPN channels I don't watch because they don't ever have hockey and who gives a **** about poker? Nothing on VS and of course nothing on the major networks who only step on for the Stanley Cup so they can give it terrible sports casting.

I want to watch the WINGS! I'm PO

Why aren't you watching them online for free? I just got done watching the Sabres kick the Lightnings ass 7-1... online for free.

By the way, its the 27th....

ESPN doesn't have a contract to televise NHL games, so you won't see hockey on there. VS. has the contract, but only shows a few games a week, which is an absolute joke if you ask me. They should be carrying more games... double-headers, Saturday night games, etc. HNIC is on NHL Network, but usually just the first game, not the second game. Sad fact is Comcrap (which owns VS.) is too damn cheap and incompetent to broadcast more games.

If you want more hockey, sadly you'll have to purchase the CI package.

I'm paying for a Hockey channel. If there is a game why isn't it on is my point. Vs. crappy reruns of interviews etc.

Because the game looks so much better with a 52" HDTV with proper high definition signal than it does on my 15" computer monitor.

Better to watch it on a monitor/tv than to not watch it at all... Versus will be showing a lot of playoff games...
