East Shakeup - What a Night: Does any hockey fan out there feel jipped? I had to sit through baseball and NBA scores to even get to the great story about the Eastern Conference race, and even the Nhl Website has failed to put up their yearly playoff page yet. I think we need a hockey support group!

No. I live in Canada. I can't escape hockey coverage. The pre-season scores get more press than the death of world leaders. However, when I'm in the US I can't get directions to the arena from gas station attendants that live two blocks away. That seriously happened in Raleigh. "Who are the Hurricanes?" So I hear your pain.

TSN seems to have great hockey coverage, but only of Canadian teams (front page - Ottawa ready for Tampa Bay). I live in Chicago...CHICAGO...ad the reaction I get here is "hockey?.....what about them Cubs?"

LOL - I hear ya Weedy, the Jays are fielding the best team since they won the WS and they whomp Randy Johnson & the Yankees 10-5 right here in town and & all the sports coverage is about our hockey team playing the last meaningless game of a dismal season -- as much as I missed hockey during the lockout, I thoroughly enjoyed the holiday from hockey over-coverage

Chicobangs and I were at the Rangers/Sens game. Great fun, though I wish it was a closer contest. I can't freaking WAIT for the playoffs to begin, and yeah, the coverage has been lacking, but give them a day.

Article Yes, I know it is yahoo, but a well written article anyways.

The Devils are the hottest team in the league currently, and as my bro-in-law so eliquently put it "The Rangers are sinking like the Titanic." Good Luck to which ever team you root for.

That is blasphemy! There is no such thing as over-coverage!!! I'll 2nd that. Out here in La La Land they barely even cover the Kings and Ducks. Of course there's not much there to cover this year.
