Might be off-topic and I'm not sure where to look, but does anyone know any particular reason why this pre-season game is not on RDS? (all others are) :

Fri, 23 Sep 2011 Canadiens @ Senators 7:30 PM EHIW

I'm very happy all other 7 are by the way, so I'm not being negative at all (big improvement over last year) B) Just curious is all! :)

I dont know why they dont broadcast that game but I'm not complaining, having the 7 others is, like you say, an improvement over the previous years when we had about 4 on TV

My guess would be the Maritime provinces and Ontario would have the TSN regional channel blacked out.

Dammit :angry:

Tuesday can't come fast enough for me.

2 more sleeps ;)

RDS rocks!!!

CBC and TSN coverage of Habs games stink to high heaven. I don't need them; I pay the $5/month for RDS. Works out to about $0.41/game. Now that's a bargain!! :D

That is a high price. What is your cable company? I am with Shaw and it is 3 bucks a month or 2 bucks when ordering with another channel and I get the NHL Network with it.

He's probably with Rogers (Toronto and GTA area) like I am. We have to buy the whole "French Varietié" package to get RDS, which is about $5/month. Totally worth it imo, but it is a shame I don't have the option to *just* buy RDS. Habs hockey on RDS is pretty much the only reason I'm going to be getting cable when I move into my new apartment....everything else I can just download or watch online...but I dislike the quality on NHL's GameCentre...so I need my RDS for my Habs!

The 73 english games in the Habs region has been mentioned already. That makes for nine games exclusively on RDS and they are:

Oct. 24 vs. Florida

Nov. 10 at Phoenix

Nov. 17 at NY Islanders

Nov. 23 at Carolina

Nov. 30 at Anaheim

Dec. 1 at San Jose

Dec. 6 vs. Blue Jackets

Feb. 13 at NY Islanders

Mar. 21 at Buffalo

The two games in bold are on Wednesdays and with that being TSN's exclusive night. There will be other games on its main channel and TSN2 so the Habs games could not be televised on those channels. For the other seven games, they are on nights where TSN is showing the Jets regionally. The license TSN has does not permit the airing of more than one regional channel at a time.

Bell. $3 is clearly better than $5, but I'd be willing to pay even more to avoid listening to the CBC (in particular) and TSN guys. :D

Anyone know where I can watch highlights of the preseason games? NHL.com has not had any highlights for any Montreal games so far.

Those of last night's game are on Habs TV: http://www.rds.ca/zv2/?categorie=canadien

Those for the Buffalo game and the game in Ottawa Friday are on rds.ca in the "zone vidéo": http://www.rds.ca/zv2/index.html?video=56795 and http://www.rds.ca/zv2/index.html?video=56854 respectively

didn't find any for the Dallas game
