though i am a Boston fan first, i do like to see the Canadian teams do well....something that did NOT happen this week.
 
   we only got 3 in so i'll be pulling for Ottawa, Calgary and Vancouver.
 
   but i'll just hope that Vancouver and Buffalo dont end up in the finals like it looks to be the case.  cause that would be real boring like.

I'm assuming your commenting on every Penguins game being on National Television...(while ignoring the fact that not a single Ducks game is being broadcast)
 
 I'm doing a survey, BTW.  Does you cable provider offer Versus in HD?

ducks dont have the transplants or star power that the pens have. but yeah, guess that's a total bummer for you
 
 i do not believe we have versus in hd (i dont have an hd set, yet)

I have versus in HD, its split with the golf channel in hd
 
 and how is Buffalo boring?  their fans may suck but the hockey isnt boring, Vancouver certainly is though
 
 Go Blues! (ahem)

i dont get Versus in HD
 
 in fact, i dont get Versus at all. Its in a higher tier package than the one i subscribe to.
 
  but i dont believe Dish Network would give it to me in HD even if i got the higher package.

i went to grad school at BU, loved it (although being right across the river from harvard and mit does give one an inferiority complex at time).  if she's into hockey, she picked a great school!  the new arena rawkz.  feel free to PM me if you happen to have additional questions about BU.

Thanks for the feedback.  Pollard, is that cable that you speak of?
 
 D*TV does not broadcast Versus in HD at all times, but any game Versus broadcasts in HD is available in HD on an alternate channel.  My brother-in-law is trying to convince his cable company to offer the games at least in HD, but he was told that Versus HD is satellite only and I don't think that's true.

What a first night. Sens spanked the Pens (don't let the score fool you), though the Pens PK was pretty good.
 
 But, good lord....QUADRUPLE F**KING OVERTIME? I thought the double OT in the SJ/Nashville game was bad. Luongo makes 72 saves!! Welcome to the playoffs, Roberto.
 
 Tonite will be interesting. My wife has "requested" that I sleep in the garage for the remainder of Round 1 as she cheers on her Wings with my "go flames go!" chant ringing in her ears.

bah, same as every year - they'll flame out in the second round (this from someone who grew up in the national capital region).  then again, the colts were famous for chocking during the playoffs and they went all the way this year...

The over/under on penalty minutes tonight if Nashville either gets a big lead or does something stupid: 140.
