Take it for what it's worth but the Manage Tickets page for STH's, Wednesday and Friday are listed by Games 1/2 and next Thursday for Game 5.

So do I. Then the Caps/Rangers vs Bruins/Leafs series will start Wednesday (at least 1 day off).

Yeah, not sure how much the networks impact this - I guess alot since there is $$$$ involved - I would imagine CBC would want game 3 on Sat night for sure.

Not to mention, it's the middle of May and the first round is just ending haha.

The dates were correctly by Games 1/2/5 of the Isles series prior to being officially announced so I'd call it a good sign.

Wouldn't the dates of round 2 be based off of all series going 7 games in round 1?

Not saying they will be incorrect, but I think those dates were listed prior to even round 1 starting for round 2.

Before the Islanders series ended "Round 2, Home Game 1" and "Round 2, Home Game 2" had TBD by them.

The later...the better. Heal injured bodies. There is no momentum to be lost for the Pens by starting later, either.

The only way it is Tuesday is if it is announced early tonight. The Pens would be livid if the NHL gave game day only to sell ticketst to Game 1. Money and TV dictate the schedule. If Toronto loses, my guess is Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, Monday. If Toronto wins, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday, Tuesday. HNIC will have a Canadian team on Saturday night one way or another and Toronto is the feature team for the nation.

Tuesday/Thusday or Wednesday/Friday. There won't be a game here Saturday night, there's an arena football game that night

Based on the fact that Game one tickets are not going on sale until noon tomorrow, I would say Wednesday at the earliest.

NHL takes precedence over Arena Football. They'll move the Power game.

I posted earlier in the thread the Power agreed to move their Saturday games. Not an issue.

The real driver is the Leafs. They advance, they will be the big ticket broadcast in Canada. So they will be the HNiC broadcast. Meaning that series would be Thurs - Sat. Pens series would be Wed-Friday.

The Canes game in the finale was the only one in the regular season IIRC. The week before that was supposed to be vs Buffalo but got moved.

The conference I'm going to has a big concert Thursday night, country (Alan Jackson, Bonnie Raitt, Martina McBride) which I'm not going to lose sleep over but would still like to go. Pens take precedence, though.

The fact that both series are going to Game 7 and the NHL can't get the schedule out until those are resolved means...Pens game won't be until Wed or Thurs.

Why does the league keep this information so secretive? It's not that big of a deal. People need time to make plans to attend.

I'm guessing Wednesday/Friday at this point.

Not true. Game 5 was originally listed as Fri 5/10 on the Manage Tickets page for STH before the schedule came out. They played game 5 on Thur 5/9. Other than that it was correct.

I don't think it is secretive, my guess is they have Schedule A with Pens vs Sens and Caps vs Bruins, Schedule B Pens vs Sens and Caps vs Leafs, Schedule C Pens vs Sens and Bruins vs Rangers, or Schedule D Pens vs Sens and Leafs vs Rangers sitting there waiting. Remember, they have to plan around arenas and dumb concerts like One Direction.

With Spezza getting healthy, i would think the pens would be wanting to start as soon as possible.
