To be fair, I see now that I CAN stream the USA network games via the Live Extra app. Before I wrote that post yesterday, checking the schedule in the app showed no additional nhl games. Just wanted to post the correction for the record. Enjoy the games!

I have an issue with the streaming, or lack thereof. So games on USA and NHL network...How do you stream them? Anyone? I haven't seen a way to stream, either on the computer or on your phone/tablet. In 2015 I think this is rather unacceptable. Games on NBCSN, you can get with the live extra app. But hey there are plenty of unauthorized sites with awful quality for me to choose from while I'm on the go. Thanks NHL!
And while I'm here venting, it was a joke that any game on NHL network was "blacked out" on gamecenter live. All those games were just piggy backs off of the local feed.

Glad to see John Walton doing the Dallas-Anaheim game last night. He deserves it. I'm a Caps fan and listen to his radio calls quite a bit. Very good play by play man in my opinion

This isn't any one day. But I think it's worth mentioning.
I absolutely love any of the nights in late April/early May where both the NBA and NHL playoffs are in the conference quarterfinals and MLB is a few weeks into its season. (Not to mention it is light outside longer and spring is in the air!).
Just like Yoder noted about the NCAA Tournament, I think having multiple games on at once really makes this awesome. A few years ago the NHL made it so ALL of the playoff games are televised nationally. If you are savvy with the remote or have multiple screens going, there is no shortage of action/drama on these nights.

Great post Matt,I 100% agree. The playoff overtime hockey analogy is a winderful example. Only break in action is to clean the ice, even then the tv coverage stays in the arena.
I know its mainly the NFL product that makes the Redzone channel so popular, but how great is it that they have zero commercials?! I can here Hanson in my head now saying "We don't do commercials on NFL Redzone!"
