You are not missing much. Toronto fans are waving signs that say, "Please..... In my Lifetime". And Sid the Kid has a broken jaw. That's it! Can't help with the jumping screen.

Re: Hockey Night In Canada

I just checked on the afternoon game, Philadelphia against I don't know whom, You are correct, jerky picture. However all the commercials were crystal clear. I suspect CBC is using some cheap, crappy data compression program to stream the hockey. I will check the Toronto game tonight to see if the fans are still sitting there with paper bags over their heads. Are these bags standard issue when you buy a Leaf's ticket or do you bring your own?

I just went to the CBC Website regarding the choppy streaming. Check out the link here.
