Round 1 Schedule Speculation

Postby Admin on Fri Apr 26, 2013 9:50 am

Consol is booked Tuesday (start of the playoffs) so I'm guessing the schedule will look like:
Home - Wed, May 1
Home - Fri, May 3
Away - Sun, May 5 (maybe NBC afternoon game?)
Away - Tues, May 7
Home - Thurs, May 9
Away - Sat, May 11
Home - Mon, May 13

Sound good?

I would prefer if every game was at home.

Pens won't need more than six games?

I like it.

They usually take a two day break when they switch cities, but I'd imagine NBC wants the pens Sunday so I think Wed, Fri, Sun, Wed

I don't think thats necessarily going to be the case this year. They're going to want to get through the playoffs.

If the Pens play Ottawa, it would probably be on Hockey Night in Canada and would not be the NBC Sunday afternoon game. NBC will go for the bigger market teams (New York, Wash, Bos, Chi) on their feature game.
OK with me....night hockey>>>>>afternoon hockey.

Hoping game 2 is Friday not Saturday as marathon has hotels slammed on Saturday night and I'd imagine traffic leaving the city on Sunday morning (with marathon going on) will be awful.

Molinari and Anderson tweeted yesterday the Pens first playoff game will more than likely be Wednesday.

Pens can't play Saturday the 4th, the Pittsburgh Power have a home game.

That works cause it's not like many people go to the Power game.

Neither Crosby nor Malkin have EVER scored on Nabokov.

And they're both aware of that.

There are 3 possible teams we can play in round 1, you better check if their arena is open on the away games you selcted.

Hate afternoon games, the earliest a NHL game should start is 3. That is the earliest i feel ok cracking open a beer, i can't start drinking at 12:30 just ruins the rest of the day for me.

I have no problem cracking a beer open at any time. When I was single, Saturdays were usually soccer days, so beers were cracked open as soon as the match was on. Now I get angry looks when I do that...plus blackburn isn't televised.

FWIW my ticketmaster / Penguins account list the HOME dates as follows:

Round 1=
HG1- 5/1
HG2- 5/3
HG3- 5/10
HG4- 5/13

Round 2=
HG1- 5/15
HG2- 5/17
HG3- 5/23
HG4- 5/28

They list these dates but also still say TBD.
