I had the split second cut on CBC-XT OTA in Edmonton as well during the O.T.

You must mean CBXT-DT, no station in CRTC DB has CBC-XT as their call letters ;-)

I've gotta say, I am slightly surprised that TSN has the FLA/NJ series on TSN2 at 7:00pm. I know for CHI/PHX they are producing their own coverage, but that game starts at 8:00pm and will most likely roll on past 10:30 when the STL/SJ game starts. I know they can start that STL/SJ game on TSN2 and then bring it over to the main network, but they could had shown FLA/NJ as the first game, then done a bridge show/pregame for the second or do a live look-in to the completion of that CHI/PHX game.

At least RDS has a shot at that tonight, since they have BOS/WAS at 7:30 on the main network and then STL/SJ. In fact, I am slightly surprised they made that decision, since you would assume RDS would pickup the TSN feed for their main game instead of going with the NBC feed.

Yup. I watched the beginning of OT again (I hadn't deleted the recording yet) and sure enough, there was the text shortly after the puck dropped.

Its an easy decision IMO. CHI-PHX is TSN's 2nd highest rated series, behind PIT-PHI. On Tuesday it brought in 730, 000, while NJ-FLA only did 500, 000.

STL-SJ is a 10:50pm puckdrop. TSN should be able to get there in time for it.

RDS is showing BOS-WSH because it will get the best ratings in Quebec. It has nothing to do with start times or what other channels are showing it, really.

Where do you see 10:50. NHL.com and everywhere else has it set for 10:30. Even TSN during the NJ/FLA pregame acknowledged that the game may need to start on the deuce.

I guess this one was closer to 10:40. The NHL has been starting some of the late games at :20 past the hour (or half-hour in this case). An example is VAN-LA last night. I guess they didn't tonight, for whatever reason.

I suspect that it may not be the NHL's decision to start later but the home team an all their pre game fan fair.

All games on NBC and NBCSports Network have been starting 10 or 15 minutes past the hour/half hour all season this year.

^^Hmm, it may be a network requirement as they only schedule 2 1/2 hours for the game, which really isn't quite enough.

We've no TV coverage due to the heavy snow. Kudos to Cbc.ca for their excellent quality stream of the Sens game. Unfortunately Tsn.ca doesn't appear to have the Phoenix @ Chicago game.

If you really want to see/hear the Coyotes-Blackhawks games you could listen to a radio stream online. I think WGN Radio is the Blackhawks affiliate. Not TV, but if satellite isn't coming in, it's better than nothing.

Given that you are in Toronto, why not just plug an antenna into your TV and watch the CBC games in HD (assuming your TV has an ATSC tuner, which most most modern TVs do). You might want to do this even when your Sat is working as you will get a better PQ.

Here are the start times for game seven in all three series.

April 25, Capitals-Bruins 1630h Pacific, 1930h Eastern

April 26
Senators-Rangers 1600h Pacific, 1900h Eastern
Devils-Panthers 1730h Pacific, 2030h Eastern

It is an unusual start time for the Devils-Panthers game but, it does allow fans to see more of both games.
