NHL Network Will Announce the Playoff Schedule on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET

The NHL typically ends it’s seasons on a Sunday, with games ending around 7 or 8 p.m. ET, so that the Stanley Cup Playoff schedules can be released before the night is out. The NHL season will not end until the conclusion of the Los Angeles Kings-San Jose Sharks game this Saturday night/Sunday morning at approx. 1:00 a.m. ET, and that game will likely have playoff implications. So the NHL will do something a tad different this year.
Last year, and in most years past, the NHL Network had an On the Fly after all the games were over to announce the schedule for the Conference Quarterfinals. This year, the NHL Network will air NHL Tonight: 2012 Playoff Scheduling Show this Sunday, April 8th at 1 p.m. ET. The show will then rerun through various dayparts.
Playoff scheduling is more interesting than ever this year, with every game to be televised on multiple networks in both the United States (NBC, NBCSN, CNBC, NHL Net) and in Canada (CBC, TSN, TSN2).
