Anyone else notice how there's now no TV for the Feb. 3 game against the Columbus Blue Jackets? That's because Vs. has dropped the contest from their schedule and replaced it with the Caps and Devils? I remember wondering why the hell Vs. would pick up a game between the Blues and the Jackets, let alone the next night after they just aired a Blues/Wings game, but they did and know they're pulling the rug out from under the two non-contenders.
The only confirmation I could find for this was an article on Yahoo sports' Puck Daddy column breaking down the number of games each team would be on. The Blues had 5 and The Jackets 1, counting them up now its clear the blues are down to four and the jackets zilch.
So I'm torn. On one hand we get to see Ovechkin and the playoff bound caps play the also playoff bound but boring ass Devils. However it also leaves us completely TV less on both sides of the puck, so not even an internet stream will be availible. Should we be outraged or not? Also, does Shanny signing with the Devils have anything to do with the boot we got from Vs? Maybe, maybe not, who knows.
