They already do that. Just get the NBC sports app.

I emailed their support this morning.

I watched the game on the NBC app for a bit, but had the same issue Troy did. Worked ok for a bit then suddenly went black. I tried to fiddle with Sling again for a while then went back to the NBC app and instead of the game I’m seeing reporters fluff their hair.
Could of.

Just FYI, Troy and I are in fact different people.

Are any of us really all that different?

We were chasing all game, Monty was severely outcoached (Berube put Tarasenko out against Polak every chance he got). We whiffed on four empty nets, by my count.

Still only lost by one goal. I think we'll actually be fine, and might earn a split on Saturday.

Yeah, I feel oddly confident after this game too. Everything went perfectly for them and perfectly wrong for us and it was still a one goal game.


Quote from Montgomery (per Shapiro's article on The Athletic):

Montgomery felt the Stars were better offensively than media members were giving them credit for.

“I thought we were in place for the second shots, I thought we had traffic in front of Binnington. I didn’t think it was an easy night for him,” Montgomery said. “So there was a lot of our game that I like, and there are areas we need to get better at. The physicality and intensity of the game probably wasn’t what we were doing against Nashville, and those are areas we need to get better. You guys seem to have a different opinion than I do of the game. I don’t think I’m giving you the answers you want.”

Gagree with Monty. I thought the Stars played pretty well for the most part. The first goal against was bad. The Stars outshot them and seemed to have the puck a lot more. If they keep doing what they have been doing, working hard, staying on the puck, they will be OK.

I'm concerned about the physicality, though.

I can't believe I'm asking this, but is Oleksiak close to returning? Would love to see him lay out a few Blues...

Oleksiak was fine against the Predators. I don't think he's $2+MM a year for 2 or 3 years fine, but I'd prefer him over Polak. Honestly, I think they should put in Nichushkin over Janmark or Pitlick. Defensively, he's good, and he's a big guy so he can withstand some of the bigger hits that are being laid out.

The Blues are bruisers, so Stars will have to step up the physically when they can. If they go out of their way to play that game we will lose. But we gotta out skate them. And I thought we did that for a good bit.

On the scary scale, the Blues were only slightly scary for a minute or two in the first two periods. But the next game, who knows?

Oleksiak should probably play over Fedun if he’s healthy.

A lot like the 4th line there isn’t a lot of help to be found to improve the bottom pair defenders.

Would it have been any different on FiOS though? I don't think they carry the alternate NBCSN channel, do they?


I was on Fios and they went to the Stars on NBCSN right away. I switched to NHL Network when they told us to, then right back to NBCSN and never missed a beat. So.....
