I have seen HDNet games from Columbus (where I live), Anaheim and, I think, St. Louis, that I remember. All were teriffic.
The Rangers-Bruins game from Madison Square Garden on Tuesday (I grew up and remain a Rangers fan) seemed dark and had far less definition than the others, I felt. It was especially bad in the corners and the difference in lighting from place to place on the rink was clearly noticable when a wide shot showed a corner.
I don't know if it's the arena lighting or not, but I was unimpressed. If this had been my first HD experience I would have said "You want me to pay thousands of dollars to get this?"
I'll look at the game tonight to see if I think it's any better and post again tomorrow.
Just got Comcast HD here in Dallas a week ago, and can't wait to see this game in HD tonight. Grew up near Philly as a Rangers fan, so I can't wait to see the crystal clear vision of Chris Simon punching Donald Brashear in the nose.
Actually, I was brave/stupid enough to wear a Messier jersey to the (then) FU Center two years ago, and almost got in about five different fights. For some reason they all got mad when I'd say 1975...
I am very jealous of you guys - longtime Ranger fan but unfortunate to be a Charter subscriber so no ESPNHD. They make me feel like I should be grateful to have Discovery and HBO. Charter - rat *******s!
