    Wow, bad move on NBC and (especially CBC)’s part. I get that the Flyers are a big ratings draw, but ignoring the West entirely isn’t going to help ratings for the third and fourth rounds one bit. Blues/Kings are two markets with decent hockey history that should be able to draw decent if unspectacular ratings on the big networks, but instead we’re going to see the West treated as a poor cousin and then everyone wonder why they aren’t pulling in more viewers for the Stanley Cup.

      You seemed to have missed that the St.Louis/LA game on May 6 is on NBC..

    • CBC needs to maximize on ad revenue. They need as much money as possible to fund their other programs, especially after recent cuts. Not showing Kings-Blues isn’t going to hurt future ratings. Besides, TSN will probably have games 1-3 of the West Final anyway.

      Its not like because the West games are on TSN nobody will watch. TSN outdrew CBC head-to-head with PHI-PIT against OTT-NYR last week.

      As long as Philly, New York or Washington get to the Final, CBC’s ratings will do fine.

        “TSN outdrew CBC head-to-head with PHI-PIT against OTT-NYR last week.”

        But! But Canadians want to watch Canadian teams above anything else! Even Canadian teams from markets outside the Big Three that barely cracked into the playoffs!

    I suspect it’s the time zone issue. The CBC needs games in prime time.

    The real issue here is that relative parity in the league has resulted in less well known teams doing well in the first round. If we get to a New Jersey – Phoenix final (just kidding) the league and their broadcast partners wont be too happy!

  3. bomber says:

    The second round of the eastern conference playoffs should be sponsored by Amtrak.Curious to see the ratings going forward with the major market teams eliminated.

  4. morganwick says:

    The CBC can’t be happy with the 12:30 ET start time for Rangers-Caps Game 4, that I’m guessing is to clear time for something else on NBC in the late afternoon.

    With Fox turning over their Saturday primetime to sports, do you think NBC might one day put Stanley Cup Playoff games before the Final on the main network in Saturday primetime, especially games the CBC would pick up?
