Pittsburgh Penguin games locked out? 130 miles away?

Really?

This isn't the first time, either.

I can't be a fan of something I can't see. Screw the NHL.

I get FSN Pittsburgh here, the game was over before it started. I wish I could hear the VS commentators instead of the Penguins homers though, they are absolutely terrible.
Bring the NHL to C-Town.

I agree. I really wanted to watch. Blacked out, and I'm in Youngstown. I'm not even in the same damn state. I don't get FSN Pittsburgh. Game 7, 2 biggest stars in the league, and I can't watch it.

Also, I get FSN Ohio, the Blue Jackets show up on my guide every time they're on, and they never get shown. The NHL is a joke of a league. No wonder it's failing.

Thats strange, I am in northern Summit county and got the game just fine. Plus, it was a road game for Pittsburgh as game 7 was in Washington. Wonder if your cable company was screwing with you?

I agree that it could have been a cable company error, but I also think they should bring back the NHL to ESPN instead of having it on a network that not everybody gets because you have get more than just a basic package to get it. You didn't miss a whole lot as it was not much of a game.

Unfortunately. I need to switch because they suck and are ridiculously over priced. They block my FSN HD channel for some reason, all other HD channels are fine.

I hope so but it happens all the time. No reply from the League yet.
