  1. I think TSN would take Rangers-Lightning before Wild-Coyotes. I think that MIN-PHX and NSH-SJ could very well be split up between TSN and CBC depending on what games fit each network’s schedule best. Otherwise, I agree with these predictions.

  2. DyHrdMET says:

    you know I was saying to expect the Devils in this list before the season ends about a month ago. And NBC would avoid them like the plague no matter who they played.

  3. Josh says:

    Things would get very interesting if the Leafs somehow snuck in and Canada’s three largest markets all made the playoffs. Then, CBC would have to give one of them up. Which one?
