NBC, NBCSN to Air Tripleheader Headlined by Blackhawks/Red Wings on April 7th

Though prior listings had led me to believe that NBC would go with Flyers/Penguins three consecutive weeks to end the NHL season, that will not end up being the case.

The NBC Game of the Week on April 7th will be Blackhawks/Red Wings, live from Detroit at 1 p.m. ET. That will be followed by Flyers/Penguins, which will air on NBC Sports Network following an NHL Live in-between show at 3:30 p.m. ET. Capitals/Rangers will cap off the night at 6:30 p.m. ET. NHL Live follows, and everything will get wrapped up by a special hour-long NHL Overtime at 9:30 p.m. ET.

This will mark the second time this season NBC and NBC Sports Network have combined to air a triple-header. The networks have been combining to air two games each Sunday almost every week since January.

    Anyone know why the season ends on Saturday and not Sunday this year?

    The final day of the season has the potential to rival the final day of the major league baseball season.Lots of possible playoff implications.
