    If it were Game 7 of the East final, with the New York market and the name Rangers, they might have considered putting it on NBC.

  2. Gamma1099 says:

    It was the same way last year. NBC only took the middle weekend of the Conference Finals, leaving Versus with all the other games.

  3. e says:

    NBC should show their commitment to the NHL and show both game 7s on NBC in prime time. The primetime season is over, and it would be a great lead in to the Stanley Cup finals. Since both games are on the weekend. I know this would never work during the week, but, late May on the weekend would be a perfect opportunity to show game 7s in prime time on NBC. Yes, this is wishful thinking.
