    Re: Maine vs. NU

    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.

    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).

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.

    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.

Technology has made it easy to have your cake and eat it too, and that’s exactly what they do.

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 refreshing 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...

The semi-finals and finals are on NESN, but I don't believe the quarterfinals have ever been on TV in recent memory. And the schools can't provide their "normal" streams because the league owns the rights.
