Don't ask me why I know this.

If there is a game on Saturday the Power would go to Sunday at 2 PM.

Personally rooting for Wednesday.


Why would the Power need to move their time?

The Saturday game is so they can have a Canadian team on HNIC. If the Leafs are out, Ottawa is the only one left and they want them for the Saturday night feature.

I have no idea what the reasoning behind Tuesday/Friday is. It seems much more logical to go Tuesday/Thursday unless they're planning on the other series only starting Thursday (ie: no East game on Wednesday).

Well, TV contracts (national + local) do account for something like 25-30% of the league's revenues...

Wow, I wasn't expecting that. But I guess they have to push them through or the Finals will go until July.

Pens will play Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday/Sunday depending on the outcome of tonight's Bruins/Leafs game. If the Leafs win, they'll be the Saturday HNIC game and the Pens/Sens play Sunday; if they lose, then the Pens/Sens will be the Saturday HNIC game.

I'm guessing that if the Leafs win, the Pens will play Friday and Sunday. If the Bruins win, the Pens will play Thursday and Saturday. I didn't include Tuesday because that game is confirmed.

I'm still not understanding why people are assuming Friday. NHL hasn't said anything about game 2 yet.

I will say yes.

NHL is pushing these playoffs (they normally do anyhow with often only 1 day off in between games) more than normal. That should be obvious from having 5 of the 8 first round series scheduled to have game 6 and 7 back-to-back nights.

I'm expecting Pens to be Tues/Thurs/Sat/Mon/Wed/Fri/Sun

I would not be shocked, however, if somewhere during the series, a back-to-back is scheduled (game 3 and 4 if they want to double down on weekend tv ratings)

Don't know if the Ottawa Sun is a rag, but they are saying Game 2 will be Friday, but won't be offically announced until tonight.

Toronto is really the wildcard in all this because it's the big draw up north.

Thanks, Canada.

It IS a rag, but I have seen Game 2 on Friday from a couple different places.

Guys from CBC have said Tuesday/Friday for Games 1 and 2. Yohe has said the same thing.

I assume the other series is going to play Wednesday and Thursday, then.

I just laughed because when you open up the home page, it has the Sens vs Pens Game 1 announcement, and instead of a Senator or a hockey play, it has a Sen elbowing Matt Cooke in the head. :lol:
