Newsday: Mark Herrmann's stir the pot article was basically on how Scott Gordon learns quickly not taking chances with the franchise player as he looked back at last year.

Newsday: Greg Logan's other article was all about DiPietro and what they are going to do to keep him healthy along with the decision-making process in whether he plays.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
I understand DiPietro not playing is a big story, but so is Frans Nielsen, Tambellini, Hillen and the game itself. Between the Newsday blog updates on the DiPietro can we please get more on the young players who have to hit the net or any discussion of any goaltender is moot. About two and a half articles were about a player who did not play last night.

  1. I did have the game live on MSG+2 on Time Warner in NYC last night. They had it on channel 199, for future reference. Used to be on 51.

  2. Thank You.

    I did not know this and watched the Devils broadcast Friday. Msg+2 on Saturday did show the Pens-Devils on channel 51.

    Seems last season the second team in Isles-Rangers-Devils head to head got blacked out when they had the Fsn-2/Msg+2 spot.

    On Friday I guess Time Warner decided to make Msg2 channel 51 for the Knicks because that's what was on.

    Channel 199? Any higher it would be a premium channel and that high is as unavailable as Versus on 122.

    Boy do I miss sportschannel and seperation from anything Msg.

    Thanks again
