Yes, but they said all "70" regular season games would involve Canadian teams. These are extra games, on nights when TSN isn't scheduled to air anything live. I thought they'd pick up the final Sunday afternoon game, the rest surprised me as well.

Ok, has there been a release from TSN or the NHL regarding this?

No, all except the three flex NBC games are listed on NHL.com though. Click on schedules, then TSN when you get there and they will show up. I'd provide a link, but NHL.com is difficult to link to.

Be careful with that, awhile back if you searched in the networks under "TSN" even the Versus games had just "TSN" beside them, and then if you went under "Versus" it said "TSN2". I just haven't seen an official release on this.

There hasn't been an official release as far as I know. If you go under the VS or regular schedule they show up as well. They are different games than the TSN2 games, believe me I've checked.

HNIC

Looking over the NHL website, the schedule is only showing the early games of Saturday night doubleheaders in HD. I was under the impression that both Saturday night games would be in HD this season? Anyone have any info on this?

If believe the schedule at NHL.Com the Canadiens games on CBC Sat. night will all be in HD but not the Toronto games also being shown at the same time. Marc of the CBC, can you confirm this?

Wow...Very Impressive for TSN. This has to be one of the best sports broadcast packages for any sport and network anywhere. Congrats TSN!!

"For the first time ever, all games on TSN and TSN2 will be available in High Definition, along with pre-games and intermissions airing from TSN’s now fully HD NHL studio"

This is just a guess...but does anyone else feel like TSN has rebuilt the old Sportsnet Connected newsroom into the NHL Studio? The last time they rebuilt a studio it took months, and they are still using the old one for Pre-season and CFL games. Just a guess...

BTW. watch TSN for new promos that have the new NHL on TSN logo on it. Commercial shows TSN's Human Resources dept. questioning Maggie the Monkey, quite cute.
