    CenterIce package should carry it if it's not being broadcast in your market I would think.  If you have centerice, call you cable provider and make a stink about it.  I did that last year with Comcast.  NHL Net (for whatever reason) wasn't included with centerice, and one day there were 15 games, and the B's got pushed to NHL net.  I called and made an jerk of myself until I got my coverage.

    Unfortunetly if VERSUS has the game it will not be on Center Ice at least that was the case on TimeWarner in my area. Might be different in your area.

    Interesting how the Direct TV forces the No Fun League to disallow allot of free pro football games on national TV every Sunday but claim Comcast is demanding too much for VERSUS rights. Direct TV crys wolf but are forcing people to buy the NFL package. Couple of CEOs converging and conspiring to Gouge the consumer!

    The carriage dispute between DirecTV and sports network Versus has resulted in the service going dark on the No. 1 satellite provider.

    DirecTV, in a statement early this morning, said that Comcast, which owns Versus, "has forced us to take down the channel because we will not agree to their ridiculous demands that simply do not reflect current market valuations for their programming." 

    Dity Pool is what it is!

    As I understand, if Versus is doing a game NESN does not.  That's why we have Brick doing the commentary on Versus.  I hope this isn't true but afraid it is.
    Someone said that Versus covers seven Bruins game this year, including the opener next Thur, so those could be games we who have Direct TV with Center Ice will miss (except for computer feed, which is terrible)

    It's a rip off-- Center Ice promises all the games but then you don't get them all.

    At least we don't have blackouts like we used to.  I used to get blacked out on Comcast when Boston was playing Carolina in Boston, even though Carolina is some 200 miles away and the game was being played 750 miles away. Guess they were afraid I might not attend if it was on TV.
     
    The only other hope is NHL channel.  Maybe they will cover some of the seven games.

    Anybody know if they are?

    The game tonight vs Columbus is on ESPN.  Can't complain about the pre-season.  That's five of eight on either NHL or ESPN.

    Should work if you want to watch it on line, go to the link the day of the game and click on the link Bruins vs caps.  It is my last resort, when I can't get a game on TV

    I don't know what part of the country you're in, but you could also go the sports-bar route.  Just call around and see if they get VS on satellite and if they'll put it on one of the small screens for you.  Most are baseball/football centric, so you won't get the main screen.  But I've had pretty good luck that way in the past too.

    If you all keep posting the site everywhere there will be no more games streamed on this site !
    I used to catch games on this site below when not on TV. Everyone was posting to go on this site. Guess what happened ???
    Go see link and read cease and desist letter from NHL.

    Call Direct TV and complain. I threatened to switch service because I'm in MI and want to see the Bruins (since I'm from Waltham). Be dilligent, I wouldn't take the first offer and ended up getting NHL CI for free and a $15.00 credit on my account for 6 months.

    O.K. it doesn't solve the Versus issue but saves me a shitload of money on the programming. BTW, DTV owns Starz. Guess what's gonna happen when Comcast wants to continue to carry that channel? Also, Comcast iS planning on increasing their programming costs by 10% per subscriber. Just an FYI.
