yeah, I switched back and forth between the two and there was no comparison. HNIC was great

Great day for the NHL, and for that I am happy. Packed stadium, snowing all day, and Crosby the hero won the shootout.

I like when the playoffs roll around, because Versus will produce a lot of the games on their own, but they will also take CBC feeds and air them here in the States, and I enjoy that.

Great game today. Lots of end-to-end action, fantastic atmosphere with the huge crowd, and you couldn't ask for a better finish.

Is the Versus coverage any good? The Canadian version of that channel stayed as Outdoor Life Network (great decision, btw) and I've never seen a game on the Vs. Network.

I imagine it to be like the NFL Network is to football, or TBS to baseball.

An amazing statistic from today is that there were 11,500 fans at HSBC Arena in downtown Buffalo watching the game!

I thought it would be hard for the fans overal because I would think they would add seats like on the floor, that would of been better because it would seem like the fans would be more apart of the game instead of just watching from the GR seats..

But overal, I loved watching the game.

It was a fantastic game, that's for sure.

Hockey Night in Canada ftw.

They need to do this with the Wings. Wings vs. somebody in the Big House would rock. I'd say Hawks or Leafs, but maybe Avs would be cool?

I actually watched the end of this game, and it was really cool to see them playing outside. They should do it more often.

Apparently Montreal, Detroit and a couple other major market cities have expressed interest in doing one next year.

Montreal is hosting the 2009 All-Star game, so maybe you can kill two birds with one stone there....

You watched (the end of) a hockey game?

I know. What was I thinking?

I actually like hockey, just don't care for watching it that much on TV.
