It (fairly predictably) fell over for the Steelers/Panthers game, on Day 1, on a Saturday evening, ...
Aside from being a bit surprised by the number that seem to have decided to sign up in the final 30 seconds before broadcast, it probably gives them all of the data that they need to ensure...
The streaming series is for the 24 round-robin games only. At a guess they are still hoping for Free/Premier Sports coverage of the 6-7 Semi and Final games.

Anyone else checked their card statements over the last day or two?
It looks like I have received refunds for some of the March tickets. Unannounced, unrequested, some from the Devils and probably Steelers too by the looks of it.
