    I've been searching EVERYWHERE on Google for a week trying to find out if ABC is showing any games in HD this year. I've been to ABC's site, ESPN, NHL.com, and several program guide sites and there is nothing about it. Why do I have to search everywhere to find this stuff out? Does ABC even care if people watch their programming? Last year they did some playoff games in HD but I haven't heard a peep at all this year. I can't even find people complaining about there being no games in HD so I don't know what's going on. Anyone have any info?

    I believe they are only doing the finals in HD this year. Other round are HD on ESPN

    The answer is yes.

    The Stanley Cup playoffs on Saturday May 8 and May 15 on ABC will be in HDTV.

    This information comes from someone who works at an ABC station and has access to an internal ABC website where information such as this is passed from the network to the affiliates.

    The Flyers / Lightning game looks pretty good in HD.

    Cool, thanks for the info. Too bad ABC doesn't want people to know about it. I can't understand running a network like that but I guess they have their priorities elsewhere. I wonder if they even know they show hockey games...
