Devils-Canes Series Fallen Upon Blind Eyes

I know the networks in the U.S. want to sell the stars—i.e. Crosby, Ovechkin—to increase ratings but sometimes you have to be confident in the product on the ice no matter who is playing. I am referring to the fact that only ONE game of the New Jersey-Carolina series (of the six played so far) has been on national TV and it has been the most competitive series in the east’s first round. Two games went to overtime with each team winning the contest in the other’s house. Another game ended on a last second shot vaulting the Canes to a 4-3 win with only 0.2 seconds remaining on the clock. Martin Brodeur and Cam Ward have been phenomenal all series long and even managed to make a 1-0 game one of the most exciting contests any sports fan would ever want to see. Granted, not every game can be broadcast nationally but it would be a lot easier if NBC were to step up and televise games on weekdays! *gasp* Either way it’s a shame that such good hockey has gone unnoticed by a lot of hockey fans both serious and casual because it simply hasn’t been on TV unless you have the center ice package. Stop with all the gimmicks and use a little common sense, no matter who is invovled in a particular contest if the quality of the game play is high you better believe people will flock to their television sets. So NBC stop bullying hockey around like it’s the little brother of pro sports and realize it is back and better than ever… if you show the games people WILL watch!
