RUMOR: NBC To Double Up on Caps/Bruins This Weekend
April 18, 2012 5 Comments
This hasn’t been confirmed by NBC or the league yet, but a reliable source has told me that NBC has plans to televise both Bruins/Capitals games this weekend on the network.
The plan would be to televise both games at 3 p.m. ET on Saturday and Sunday, with Sunday’s Game 6 obviously being played if necessary. Game 6 would be part of a doubleheader with another “if necessary” Game 6, between Detroit and Nashville, which would take place at 3 p.m. ET. It was thought that a potential Game 6 between the Flyers and Penguins would take the Sunday spot, but now it appears likely the series won’t make it there.
Game 2 of the Bruins/Capitals series drew a solid 1.5 overnight rating on the network.
