The National Hockey League has informed us that the game will be seen in its entirety in both the Dallas and San Jose markets, regardless of when the NY Rangers at Pittsburgh game ends.
Per VERSUS, if the NYR-PIT game goes past 9 pm (CDT), the San Jose and Dallas local markets will be switched to the alternate Versus standard and HD feeds so these markets can see their game in its entirety. Once the NYR-PIT game concludes, the rest of the country will get the remainder of the SJ-DAL game.
The NHL has also requested Dish Network and DirecTV to open up a separate channel to carry both games in their entirety. Dish Network will air the Dallas-San Jose on channel 453 and DirecTV will air it on channel 659, for out-of-market viewers who wish to watch the entire game (should NYR-PIT run late).DirecTV VERSUS main channels: 603/604
Dish Network VERSUS main channels: 151/9468
