Puck the Media (which we found via Hooks Orpik over at Pensburgh) has what looks like a preview of the nationally-televised game schedule for the Stanley Cup playoffs.
And if things go to a 7th game in the Finals, by this schedule, then you might find yourselves crowded in a bar or around your TV sets on Tuesday night, June 16th, for Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final.
PTM notes some problems with this schedule -- the potential of a 12-day hiatus between the conference finals and the Cup final looking to be a doozy -- but when we looked at it, we thought...geez, the NHL really is becoming the NBA. The NBA seems to have a fetish about stringing out its playoffs, and now the NHL looks to be heading down that road, too.
But The Peerless doesn't care...so long as it's the Caps playing on June 16th. Or maybe it would be better that the season ended on June 14th for the Caps, seeing as that would likely be a home game...
