Double Booked

PuckI can't wait for tonight's semi-final in the World Junior Championship in Ottawa. Canada takes on Russia and you know it's gonna be good. The puck drops shortly after 7:30.

Speaking of Ottawa, the Senators are in town to take on the Leafs. Normally, that would have my full attention on a Saturday night. That game starts shortly after 7:00.

I'm double booked and without PiP. Canada vs. Russia takes precedent, without a doubt, and during intermissions and commercial breaks I'll check in on my Leafers.

There, I've got it all worked out.

My plan is to watch the most of the 1st period of the leafs (7pm est start) then switch to the juniors after leafs go to intermission (missing may 3-5 mins of game) then switch again at juniors intermission. and somehow watch the football game at the same time!

If you have a laptop handy you can watch the Canada game on tv and have a stream of the leafs game from cbc's website playing close by.. the quality is pretty terrible but it's better than missing the entire thing.

NHL GameCenter also has streams of tonight's games available for free.. although I've never used it it can't be much worse then CBC's.

Jon, I like this idea.

The live stream actually crashed my Firefox but I have it running fine in IE.

It's not the sharpest image, but it will do.

I have about a 40 second difference between the live television feed and the live web feed - which might cause an issue when I see a play developing online and turn to CBC only to learn the play is long over.

And as an added bonus, I can watch it at cbc.ca/sport in Punjabi.
