    Not the first time they screw up gold medal games. I've heard it before. Deja vu. That's why you watch it on a cheap internet stream.

    This absolutely blows, I was going to watch this on TSN but now I gotta settle for some crappy stream. What a downer. Sore losers I guess, there's no way this game would have been delayed if Canada was in it.

    Just as long as I get to see highlights of Berglund owning it up at some point I will be happy :)

    Isn't Lacrosse the national sport of Canada officially?

    The other TSN channel (TSN2) is showing the NASCAR Race.

    The reason TSN is showing the lacrosse LIVE instead of the hockey LIVE because one of the teams
    that is playing is "canadian" - Toronto Rock. If the Toronto Rock wasn't in the championship game
    or if Canada was in the Gold Medal Game - it would have definiately been shown LIVE with the
    lacrosse game being shown after the hockey ended.

    Man up you people - watch the game via tape delay - at least you only have to wait 2 1/2 hours to
    see it on the TV. You can use that time and watch the lacrosse - should be a great game. Versus
    here in the United States is showing the darn game on a 29 1/2 hour tape delay - Monday night at
    8:00 pm ET. Versus couldn't even do what TSN is doing and show it after the lacrosse ends - they
    have to show a leg of a bike race. They couldn't even show it after the NHL game tonight - have to
    show taped delay rodeo coverage. Totally sucks - investing all this time watching these games and
    we can't even get the finale at the worst same day tape delay. A Game Misconduct to Versus!

    This is great news for me because I have stuff to do by the time the game starts. Btw, I'm going to this Irish "Hockey bar" called The Molly Wee Pub, you think they have TSN? This is NYC btw... Not sure if TSN is broadcasted outside of Canada.

    Or will the game be on any American channel?


    Thanks for the heads up OP.

    But the funniest thing is that TSN barely even mentioned Lacrosse and Toronto Rock during the season and suddenly now they chose to broadcast it instead of the world championship final

    TSN/TSN2 - have mentioned the Rock this season - TSN showed highlights of their games
    via Sportscentre and showed at least one game LIVE. TSN2 showed around 11-12 games
    with most of them being LIVE including last Saturdays semifinal win over the Bandits.
    So its not like they are showing the Rock out of the blue here.

    they have Versus in the US

    wonder if they're mandated to show Nascar on TSN2. they would usually show it there, rather than go tape delay

    Actually every Canadian knows that it's one of two official sports this country has. Except for you, I guess.

    Yes, TSN2. That's why they could have shown the game on TSN2 where they always show them.

    I watch TSN SC every morning and I've hardly seen any mentions

    TSN does have two channels. the other one is showing nascar

    toronto's lacrosse team is playing in the finals.

    also remember how canadians keep saying World Championship isn't relevant here? TSN knows that

    I think it's actually quite pathetic that they don't show the game live. It's an insult to people who pay subscriptions (TSN) to see the game live, who have been watching the broadcast since the beginning and WHO WANT to see the gold medal live. I'm disgusted by this and this isn't the first time TSN has done this.

    Just to get TSN, we have to subscribe to other garbage channels and this is the type of programming we get.

    I'm sure this is great news for some people, but this sucks balls for me. I won't end up watching the game because of the delay.
