  1. Cory says:

    Glad you brought this back Steve, missed this last week.

    It would be nice to pick Blackhawks-Lightning for a change, and it may even be possible, but would NBC really want to lock themselves out of picking the Blackhawks-Red Wings game on the last day of the season? The Blackhawks would have had their fourth appearance already on April 3.

  3. I think TSN would take TB-PIT at #3. Lots of Pens fans in Canada and Stamkos = ratings. If Crosby plays, then that’s a huge bonus. That would leave CBC with NYR-WSH.

    I think Dallas-Detroit would be a higher series on TSN too.
