    Yes...but apparently things have changed. Everything is accessible now only by purchasing one of the streaming packages.

          You’re missing the point. The current generation likes to “surf.” They utilize technology to avail themselves of multiple things at once. They don’t like to sit at one game, because then they miss seeing all the others. That’s why attendance is down everywhere. Technology has made it easy to have your cake and eat it too, and that’s exactly what they do.

            Tough to do when I'll be spending my spring break out of the country, never mind the travel from Orono to Boston and back even if I had the time available.

            I am at every Maine home game and I love watching my favorite team play my favorite sport and experience being there. It is also nice to still be able to watch them if they are away from home and I can't attend, so excuse me for preferring to want to actually see the game instead of refershing a live stats page.

              If you look at my post, I wasn't responding to you. I was responding to the person who told you to buy a ticket...

                And the only way that has been announced to watch the games is to buy a ticket. There have been no other announcements (yet)

                  You are technically correct. Sorry for the hostility.

                    Some of the other threads have said there is a streaming "package," but the link they posted was a dead link ("404 - Not Found"). I'm trying to get clarification. The link was a sublink on the HockeyEastOnline site, but I can't find anything there. Someone on another thread said it was on "FloHockey" or something like that but I can't find that either. Nobody is trying to be sarcastic. I was just saying that buying a ticket isn't the "only" way...but I don't know what is taking Hockey East so long to post it. I can only guess that if they are contracting it out to someone else (which means they are not getting the direct revenue), they may not be in any hurry. As soon as I find out anything for sure, I'll post it. I don't want to mislead anyone.

                        Great! Thanks!

                        I didn't go all the way through, because it looks like you have to "sign up" before you get any details, but it appears that you have to buy a full subscription package (correct me if I'm wrong). So you get all the games, even if you don't want all of them (implicit in that statement is the assumption that you can't buy "individual" games).

                          I think in the past there has been one or two QF games on NESN each year. Usually they pick a good matchup. Guess they aren't interested this year.

                            I think you can buy the monthly for $30, I'm not sure if they're selling a separate HEA playoff package. You are correct in that you cannot buy individual games. I bought the season pass and really liked it as I could watch other WCHA league games as well as select Nacho and B1G games. However, it's not conducive to OOC fans or playoffs. It's the constant and never-ending gripe about FloHockey.

                            Edit: That and they don't support the Amazon FireStick (but that's MY constant and never-ending gripe...).

                              My guess is they don't have the rights. Which you could argue is the same thing, because they apparently didn't want to pay for them. But remember, they have the semis and finals the following weekend. Unless the TV schedule has not been updated. If you look, you will see things like "World Cup Jumping" and "College Lacrosse." My guess is they had to pay next to nothing for the "rights" to televise those.

                                Correct- months ago Joe Bertagna told me they were going to be on FLo Sports
                                Hockey East runs the tourney and gets most of their funding from it (mostly from garden events)
                                If he had his choice all the games would be pay not free streaming but schools retain those rights
