Puck the Media’s 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs Super-Schedule

Here it is again, split up into US and Canada. Remember, towards the end of the round, there are some educated guesses, so note that everything after the Game 4’s are subject to change. Also, one imagines the CBC and TSN will work out the conflict with those Pittsburgh/Tampa games, or they could be aired online.

UPDATE: Elliotte Friedman just tweeted that CBC will do a regional split for Game 1’s of PIT/TB and PHX/DET. Ontario-East gets PIT/TB, Manitoba, Windsor and West – PHX/DET

  1. Trent says:

    NSH-ANA 4/17 GM3 6PM ET, 4/20 GM4 830PM ET start times.

  2. Trent says:

    From Elliotte Friedman: Wednesday early game breakdown: Ontario-East will get PIT/TB. Windsor and Manitoba-West get PHO/DET – CBC

  3. Stephen says:

    Are they going to keep doing Inside the Glass during the playoffs on VERSUS?

  4. George says:

    The SUN 17 APR schedule is less than satisfactory. Versus could start the Ducks/Predators game at 6pm EDT and follow it with the Canucks/Blackhawks game at 8:30 EDT. Ratings and revenues would be much greater for Versus than what they are scheduling for those times slots at this time,

    I cannot wait until the new TV contract which will eliminate decision-making like this. Hopefully we will see aggressive use of the NHL Network for telecasts that overlap, giving fans nationwide complete coverage of all first round games unlike the situation that has existed in the past and in this year.

    • leafsfan1967 says:

      I agree that use of the NHL Network would be good, but it’s more likely that NHL CI will be used for overlap games.

      What’s more interesting to me is that Versus is taking the Habs Bruins series rather than Sabers Flyers…
      I wonder why??

  5. dyhrdmet says:

    where is NHL Network helping out showing some games? it’s better for the league to have EVERY game available than it is to leave some games hanging (and I think in Canada, CBC and TSN could work something out to avoid regional coverage).

    • leafsfan1967 says:

      At this point there’s no indication that the NHL network will be used to show full games. I suspect you will find that the games with overlap will be on NHLCI. They were last year.

    • leafsfan1967 says:

      As for CBC, I suspect all their games will be streamed online for people in Canada so there’s less problem….

      • Josh says:

        Is there any particular reason that TSN can’t/doesn’t provide the same service? They do it for the World Juniors and certain other events…

  6. Blazermaniac says:

    So, no full Penguins-Lightning games until game six or seven! That’s a CROCK! Versus is pandering towards Rangers fans. Even, Rangers fans could care less. And, six of the seven games involving Montreal on Versus! That is also pathetic. Getting back to Penguins-Lightning, you have to go to Canada, to see all the games. You can’t get them in the USA, but you can in Canada! No wonder the league STINKS!

    • Arthur says:

      You can always watch the Pens-Bolts on Game Center Live on nhl.com You do have that option. And why are you bashing the most compelling first round matchup of MTL-BOS? That is gonna be great to watch.
      I can’t wait until next round when the exclusives start for versus and the next thing you start whining about is “why can’t I listen to my home announcers? these Versus guys suck”

  7. Ryan says:

    Another plus to CBC’s regional coverage – a lot of people don’t realize it, but broadcast TV works differently in the US than in Canada. In the US, you only get your local affiliates for the networks, nothing else. In Canada, virtually every affiliate of every network is available on digital cable and satellite, and sometimes some out-of-market affiliates are even on basic cable.

    For me, for example, I’ll get DET/PHX on CBC Winnipeg (Channel 2 and technically the local affiliate) – but if I head up the basic cable dial to channel 81, it’s CBC Montreal, so I’ll be able to watch PIT/TB if I want.

    • Josh says:

      This gives us better options in terms of the other leagues, as well.

      With the NFL, we can see more regular season games than Americans can (without buying Sunday Ticket, I mean), because CTV airs different games in different markets, and many of us receive two sets of US network affiliates (I get Detroit and Seattle, so if those markets get different games, so do I).

      And with the NBA and MLB, it’s Sportsnet that gives us access to all kinds of out-of-market games, picking up telecasts aplenty from YES, NESN and various other local sports stations. And often, there will be one game airing on Sportsnet East and a different one on Sportsnet Pacific.

      Canadians can complain as much as anybody about sports media, but we really do have it pretty good up here.
