The next two Wild games (Thursday night at Nashville, Friday night at Columbus) will NOT be carried on Wild-controlled TV channels, Which, for those of us who are critical of their inept, babbling broadcast duo, Dan Terhaar (a.k.a. 'Dumb') and Mike Greenlay (a.k.a. 'Dumber'), will be an extra-special treat, as we Wild fans who do use alternate channels to get Wild games will now actually be able to listen to someone else do the talking.
Now, it's not what it sounds, they didn't use one of George Carlin's 'Seven Dirty Words' or anything like that. The Wild's two regular TV outlets -- Fox Sports North and KSTC-45 -- are both televising other events that night, as the WCHA Final Five college tourney takes over FSN, and the Minnesota State High School Girls' Basketball Tournament screams at you on '45'.
OK, you DirecTV people, you even get to get in on this fun, as neither game will be on the hated Versus channel (recently released, after the courts ruled that Comcast has to treat all other providers equally. Do you hear that, Ed Snider??) Here's where to find it:
Thursday at Nashville -- DirecTV Ch. 781 (Ch. 781-1 in HD).
Friday at Columbus -- NHL Network, DirecTV Ch. 215
All other cable/satellite providers, please check your on-screen channel line-ups for these games.
