    And none of these games are on the NBC broadcast network because……? Oh, yeah. They already have a full slate of repeat shows that are sure to provide higher ratings than one of these playoff games. NOT!

      And what happens if the Pens/Blue Jackets game goes into multiple overtimes?

    Or plan to do anything but watch hockey like the majority of America.

      well let’s see-15 teams 20.000 at the arena’s=300.000 plus 450.000 on tv- plus 1.000.000 in sports bars and 1.000.000 on the radio= about 55% of the american population. i guess no one likes the hockey playoffs in america.
