    I was looking at the schedule on OLN's site and was sure that beforehand there was only one Carolina game scheduled but now a second was listed. I went and found the original schedule and found that some other games had been added/removed as well. Here are the two schedules and the differences I found. If I got anything wrong, please correct me.

    Old schedule: http://www.nhl.com/schedules/oln_sked.html
    New schedule: http://www.olntv.com/nw/article/view/1367/?tf=NHLTVSchedule.tpl&UserDef=true

    Game changes:
    Mar 6 - Islanders/Capitals has been changed to Canadiens/Flyers
    Mar 21 - Thrashers/Bruins has been changed to Penguins/Senators
    Apr 18 - Blues/Blackhawks has been changed to Hurricanes/Sabres

    I'm glad they're going to show a game from Ottawa. Americans should get to see how talented this team is.

    The 3/21 ATL-BOS could have playoff implications, especially for the Thrashers. Plus haven't they shown the Pens enough this season?

    I disagree. I'd rather see Ovechkin and the Caps than Forsberg and the Flyers (for the millionth time). :shakehead

    Do we really need more Pens games stinking up OLN? Their games have been largely brutal this year, especially that back-to-back against Detroit and St. Louis.

    OLN is like having the center ice package for the Penguins.

    People want to see Crosby and Fleury, simple as that.


    The Pens are the biggest travelling roadshow in the league.

    I think the move had more to do with the Sens than the Penguins. This will be the only Sens game on OLN.

    I hear you. When we were really stinking up the NHL back in the 90's, it really didn't get to me as it does now since I know we are capable of playing much better.

    More like traveling freakshow.......

    Give the fans what they want, more games of the probable Hart and Richard Trophy winner Kovalchuk, not the probably runnerup for the Calder Trophy Crosby (He could be whining his way out of winning it...).

    Thank you! I couldn't afford Center Ice this season so OLN is my only salvation for watching hockey other than the Lightning local telecasts. I'm sick of Pittsburg and the Crosby love-fests. Show me some other teams, and not Philly again either.

    Looking at the original list of OLN games, the one released prior to the regular season, this, from what I see, is how the broadcasts broke down (not counting mid-season changes) by team:

    8 NYR, Boston, St. Louis, Detroit, Colorado
    7 Philly, Pittsburgh, Dallas
    6 Washington, Minnesota
    5 Tampa Bay, Chicago
    4 NYI, San Jose, Los Angeles, Phoenix
    3 (none)
    2 New Jersey, Montreal, Buffalo, Atlanta, Florida, Anaheim
    1 Carolina, Columbus, Nashville, Vancouver, Calgary
    0 Ottawa, Toronto, Edmonton
