    Are you sure about this?  On Thursday night, there is Ott vs NYR and Bos vs Wsh.  You say that CBC will show the Boston game instead of Ottawa?  Hmmm...

    It doesn't make sense.  I can't see CBC  airing the Boston game on Thursday night when a Canadian game is available.  I think CBC will be at the Boston game "for bonus coverage".  Not for the entire game.

    Boris - You're right.  The involvment of a Canadian team almost always takes priority for the CBC regarding their viewing audience.

    It's good to be in Panama! LOL

    NHL Gamecenter is $179 a year and I can watch any game I want. I can even watch up to 4 games at the same time!

    Plus there's that whole "it's always 32+ degrees (90F) year round" thing too!
    :-P

    Listening to CBC radio and it sounds like the primary game in Onatrio will be Ottawa, the rest of the country gets Boston as the primary game. Doesn't matter to most people anymore, as most folks receive more than one CBC station, so they can watch which ever game they want.

    LOL!

    Believe me Stuke, I called the GameCenter hotline to make sure this very morning! Was my #1 concern when I woke up. They reassured me and so now, I'm fine.

    Phew!

    Re: It's Good to be in Canada!

    I based this original post based on what I read from Mother Corp's home page.



    In the East, HNIC will follow the Ottawa Senators, who earned the eighth and final playoff spot in the conference with a 41-31-10 record for 92 points and will face the top-seeded New York Rangers. The series kicks off Thursday at 7 p.m. ET.

    Other quarter-finals available to HNIC viewers are the Nashville Predators-Detroit Red Wings series (Game 1 Wednesday at 7 p.m. CT) and Boston Bruins-Washington Capitals matchup (Game 1 Thursday at 7:30 p.m. ET).

    Needless to say, I will be very, very, very, very, very annoyed, if I find the ugly Blue Rangers skating on my TV screen

    Nice! 

    But wasn't that Dennis Martinez's nickname? I remember the perfect game he pitched while with the Expos.

    Okay so it must mean CBC - Montreal, East (Halifax) , Ottawa and Toronto will show Ottawa.  Then CBC- Winnipeg, West, Vancouver will show the Bruins.
    With my Bell subscription I have about 7 regional CBC channels and 2 in HD,  CBC-west and CBC-east

    I get about 82 different CBC feeds via Shaw Direct in Canada. At least one of them better show the Bruins or I'm gonna be pissed LARGE!
