Topic of Discussion: The NHL Moves Out Of Typical Hours To Allow For Doubleheaders
April 29, 2011 13 Comments
This is the schedule for the two games on Tuesday, May 3rd:
6:30 p.m. ET Washington vs. Tampa Bay, Game 3
9:00 p.m. ET Vancouver vs. Nashville, Game 3
I’d like to start a discussion in the comments on this one. Do you feel the NHL is smart to finally figure out what the NBA’s been doing for years, that you can avoid the typical 7/7:30 local time start to create more doubleheaders? Should Vancouver/Nashville have moved to 9:30 p.m. ET/8:30 p.m. CT instead? If you’re a fan of the Predators, Caps or Lightning, what’s your opinion? If you aren’t, how would you feel as either a ticket holder or a viewer about this being done to your team? I’m a little burnt out on the week, so I felt like just starting a conversation for the rest of the day.
