    Rob, your TV listing differs from what I read in the other daily. I prefer yours.Is it CERTAIN all round two games will be on Versus? I have the regional “Sport Package” on DirectV but games on FSN are usually blacked out except if they are on :Center Ice” which I also had. I hope I don’t have to drive to Pittsburgh just to watch on TV!

    P.S. My e-mail was incorrect on my comment question!

  3. Robert Horey says:

    Something screwed up! Probably me! Are your TV projections correct that other than NBC, Versus will carry the other Round 2 games of the Penguins?
