Tonight's Isles game is on MSG-Plus

For those in the NY-area, MSG-Plus will carry tonight's game from Calgary.  It will be a TSN production.  Face-off is at 9pm ET.

The same broadcast will air nationally on NHL-NetworkUS but I would expect that this will be blacked out in the NY area.

Gord Miller will call the play-by-play for TSN.  Former Islander Ray Ferraro, who scored overtime winners in consecutive games in the 1993 playoffs vs Washington, will have the commentary.

This is the 3rd of the Isles' 5 pre-season games for this season.  They will be in New Jersey on Friday and play the Bruins in Bridgeport CT on Saturday.

Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick

why should game be blacked out locally if it's not MSG broadcast.

Is MSG trying to block Verizon FiOS customers from watching a PRE-season game in HD on the NHL Network which is included in the basic FiOS package but NOT on Cablevision?

Is MSG so bitter about losing its exclusive HD feed that the made a last-minute decision to air 1 preseason game when none were scheduled - even the sole game at Nassau Coliseum?
