Thoughts on when next series starts?

Postby jasonpens on Sat May 11, 2013 10:37 pm

Anybody have any insight on when the next series against Ottawa will start. I'm thinking Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday. I'm betting Saturday will be Game 3 because Hockey Night in Canada will want the Sens/Pens in primetime. Thoughts?

Yeah.

If one of Rangers/Caps or Bruins/Leafs go 7, I would suspect something like:

Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Tuesday

I wonder if they would announce the series dates before the entire first round is complete for all teams? If not, I can't see the playoffs ending late Monday night and then the Pens playing on Tuesday. If there are games Monday, then they might go Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, Tuesday, etc.

I hope it's Wed/Fri/Sun... that way, I don't have to come home late to Game 3. I'm going to be surrounded by non-pens fans at the event I'm to on Saturday, but I know I will inevitably hear "Hey, you hear about that hockey game tonight?"

I'd like that, but I'm thinking there will definitely be a Saturday game considering Hockey Night in Canada's influence and the fact that Ottawa will likely be Canada's only remaing playoff team (assuming Boston beats Toronto).

I'm hoping they don't start until Wed...I come back home to the Burgh Wednesday night and the Pens are undefeated when I'm there (granted I was only there for the first two games against Philly and NYR as well as a week in the middle of the 15 game win streak, but still)...

Tues, thurs, and HNIC on Saturday. This guess is without looking at arena availability.

Looks like Consol is pretty open minus Saturdays this month.

Gotta see if the Leafs move on first I would think. They would be HNIC for sure if they do.

Well, if it is Thursday/Saturday...the NHL and Pens would need to ask the Pittsburgh Power to move their game Saturday Night.

This. Pens can't play a home game on Saturday night because of that goofy football league that nobody cares about. Power game is supposed to be at 7 p.m. on Saturday, but the Pens wouldn't even be able to play an early game (12:30 p.m.) because of the threat of a long overtime game, changing the venue from ice to turf, etc. The only possible way Game 2 of the series is on Saturday is if they play the game in Ottawa or the Power game gets moved (which probably shouldn't be a big deal because really, who cares?). If game 2 is played in Ottawa, that would mean deviating from the 2-2-1-1-1 format, which I hope they do not do.

There is no way they will have game 2 in Ottawa. 0.0

There is a better chance of playing W-F-Sat over what you stated.

Kaboly said the Power has agreed to move their games. Won't be a problem.

Yeah, I hope you're right. I do remember a few years back they switched a series from the 2-2-1-1-1 format because of some crazy scheduling conflict. Can't remember specifics, but it has happened. I was also thinking that W-F-Sat could be a possiblity, but that's a lot of games in a short period. Who knows.

If Boston wraps I up tonight it will be Tuesday since Sens will be home on Saturday. If Leafs and Rags can both win then Leafs could play at him on Saturday if they start Thursday
