NHL Conference Quarterfinals
Colorado Avalanche at Minnesota Wild
The first two or three minutes are a little glitchy, but the rest of the game is regular quality. That actually prevents me from editing the file so intermissions are left in. Maybe that's a good thing. Please comment whether or not you want intermissions for playoff games.

Okay, I checked it out on my PC. It doesn't work when I use WMP, GOM, or the old VLC. However, it works when I use the newest version of VLC.
If you leave it from the beginning, you will have no sound issues. If you skip forward, you will have to wait a long time for the sound to "find" the video again. By a long time I mean you might have to wait over 5 minutes before you hear any sound. It is probably best to just let it play.
Sorry for the inconvenience, but this problem tends to happen if there is missing data. The feed was very choppy during the first few minutes of the game so I assume some data must have been lost. That is also why I couldn't edit commercials or intermissions.
I think the issue was because the NHL chose the start of the playoffs to launch NHL Network Online and incorporate CIO with it. I don't think the high traffic time of year is the best time to be experimenting, but did. The kinks were gone by the end of the night so hopefully everything is fine from now on.
