NBC, NBCSN to Air Tripleheader Headlined by Blackhawks/Red Wings on April 7th

Though prior listings had led me to believe that NBC would go with Flyers/Penguins three consecutive weeks to end the NHL season, that will not end up being the case.
The NBC Game of the Week on April 7th will be Blackhawks/Red Wings, live from Detroit at 1 p.m. ET. That will be followed by Flyers/Penguins, which will air on NBC Sports Network following an NHL Live in-between show at 3:30 p.m. ET. Capitals/Rangers will cap off the night at 6:30 p.m. ET. NHL Live follows, and everything will get wrapped up by a special hour-long NHL Overtime at 9:30 p.m. ET.
This will mark the second time this season NBC and NBC Sports Network have combined to air a triple-header. The networks have been combining to air two games each Sunday almost every week since January.
