Same problem going on for me. But get this...even weirder...my main box (channel 848) is showing the documentary. But, when I go to my other box, it is showing the Flyers game. I live in Hunterdon County.
I called Comcast and got someone who was completely clueless about this. She actually said "maybe it's because the game wasn't sold out?".
Are you kidding me?
Anyway - they are having a technician come out and look at the issue, as I also am not getting the Phillies game on ESPN2 tonight. I read somewhere that it may be related to how they set up your IP address for your network connection. Who knows?

The problem is for the first round of the playoffs root sports pittsburgh and comcast sportsnet philadelphia have regional broadcast rights. As long as you are in the penguins home area and can get root sports pittsburgh or are in the flyers home area and get comcast sportsnet philly they will show the game not nbc sports.
The only exception are "exclusive games." The ONLY exclusive game I have seen so far is sunday afternoon's game on nbc.
Supposedly root sports won't be carrying the 2nd round games if the penguins reach the 2nd round.
Same goes for philly. So probably the whole state is blacked out this series.
