    I see there’s lots of hockey fans at TVBTN. ;)

    I’m in Boston and just about everyone I know is watching the games, but on our local cable sports channel. I suspect it is the same elsewhere. I bet there are lots of viewers in the other markets where the local teams are playing and that includes some of our largest metro areas.

    It seems that not going up against the NBA playoffs is good for the NHL and I guess would also benefit the NBA. Either Stern or Bettman take notice and move out of each others way.
