I live in Vancouver, Canada.  My local listings are saying that the CBC games are to be announced.  I see the Sens are at 4 and the Bruins are at 430.  Does anyone know if they will show the Bruins game or the Sens game in my region? I have checked the website but they haven't made it clear.

Gonna be really sad if they don't show my Bs .

They'll show the Sens Canada wide.
If CBC owns the rights you can watch it on there website.

They always give the Canadian team full coverage if they're the only one going.

NOT in Canada BUT I'm sure whichever game is NOT on CBC will be on either TSN or Rogers

I'm hoping that NHL network will pick up CBC coverage of the Senators @ Rangers. was somewhat suprised NBC Sports didn't do that with the Kings @ Canucks game last night.

NBC Sports is head and shoulders better than ESPN EVER was with NHL Playoffs coverage BUT CBC and the other Canadian broadcasters are STILL the BEST.

Just checked looks like you're right Swarez.  LeRinkRat, TSN doesn't have the rights to the Bruins series so they can't air any of the games and NBC Sports Network isn't provided here.

Man I'm pretty pissed about this.

DAMN!!! I would think Canadian fans would light up the CBC's switchboard NOT showing a playoff game NO MATTER the teams

NBC Sports has a big advantage down here because they have alternate NBC network channels thay can use like the CNBC business channel which carried the Red Wings @ Predators game last night.

NBC Sports Network has it but that's only shown in the States it's not the regular NBC King 5 or whatever that is shown on basic cable here.

I think Swarez is right though about the online streaming at CBC so at least it'll be good quality.

I have CBC Ottawa.  There's a channel called CBC CHEX or something like that and they are showing it.  I've been hearing it's online so I think we'll be ok.  I just don't wanna watch on some dogshit quality stream infested with viruses
