Apr 29, 2014, 1:49 AM EDT


Just minutes after the Kings booked Game 7 of their opening-round series against San Jose, the National Hockey League announced start times for all of Wednesday’s Game 7s — the two confirmed ones (L.A.-San Jose, Colorado-Minnesota) and the one that could still go the distance (Flyers-Rangers):

The starting time for a potential Game 7 of the series between the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers, if necessary, has been set for 7 p.m. ET on Wednesday, April 30, in New York. 

The starting time for Game 7 of the series between the Colorado Avalanche and Minnesota Wild has been set for 9:30 p.m. ET/8:30 p.m. CT/7:30 p.m. MT on Wednesday, April 30, in Colorado.

The starting time for Game 7 of the series between the San Jose Sharks and Los Angeles Kings has been set for 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT on Wednesday, April 30, in San Jose. 

As for television, the Flyers-Rangers and Sharks-Kings games will be on NBCSN, while the Avalanche-Wild game will be on CNBC.

    Two Game 7’s at the same time?? What the F are we supposed to do?

    Life’s hard for a hockey fan.

      Yeah. Two monster (for first round series) game sevens simultaneously. Would have to watch the Kings Sharks, though.

      If the NYR/PHI G7 is needed and goes OT, there will be 3 on at the same time.

    Let’s hope the Blueshirts wrap this up tonight and early.

    Sorry Rangers, but for NHL fans everywhere we really need the Flyers to force a game 7. I can’t be waiting until 9:30 for a puck drop on Wednesday.

    I have loved the first round this year, however the 8:30 start times for a Central Time Zone team (as a fan) are tough! It was so nice not having all the 9pm starts during the season only to get to the playoffs and have 8:30 home start times. That has been the only disappointment.

      Its funny how penguins fans just love to bring up 1975 when the Penguins were the laughing stock of the league until the early 90s when being terrible for so long finally paid off with the tops picks that led to guys like lemeiux and jagr, which is exactly what happened again once that era ended which resulted in 4 straight top 2 overall picks that led to more once in generation talents like Crosby

      I just don’t see how having 1 more cup solely as a result from being so bad for the majority of your franchises years is something to gloat about so much, but hey as a penguins fan I’m sure this is news to you since everything before Crosby is unheard of

        With or without the Pens history lesson it is still 1975.Your team will be playing golf soon.

        Im not sure where either argument is relative….if your not the defending champs then your past just doesnt matter regardless if it was 1975 or 2009. Neither team has much to gloat about as both have looked shaky in round 1 obviously the flyers a little moreso but they are still alive. It just always baffles me that people use previous cups to brag up their team as superior. Look at elite teams of days gone by the oilers, the islanders , the canadiens they all have hit low points since their dynasty reigns. The closest thing to that would be the current blackhawk team. Anyways my point is past cups dont matter at this point its 2014 this cup is the only one that matters.

      Oh looks who’s back. The boob that crowed so loudly the Pens were going to hoist the Cup and then when they got swept away, dis-a-freaking-peared.

      Son, your rants and obnoxious behavior may have created enough counter energy to scuttle your team last year. Keep it up.

      No horse in the Rangers/Flyers series, but if I were a Pens fan, I wouldn’t be necessarily asking for either of them.

      Now I have to shut up, go away and concentrate on my Bruins. They’ve got their gloves full.

    The Lord Jesus Christ really does not care when the games start, he only cares about the Cup!
    Go Wild!
