If you enjoyed the setup of Sunday’s pair of games, you should enjoy the setup on Tuesday. The New York Rangers ensured that they’ll push their first-round series to a maximum seven games against the Pittsburgh Penguins while one of the Chicago Blackhawks and Minnesota Wild will try to fight off elimination in a Game 6.

Here are the start times and other bits of information for both contests:

· The starting time for Game 7 of the series between the Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Rangers has been set for 7 p.m. ET in Pittsburgh. In the U.S., the game will be seen on NBCSN. In Canada, the game will be televised on CBC and RDS.

· The starting time for Game 6 of the series between the Chicago Blackhawks and Minnesota Wild has been set for 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT in Minnesota. In the U.S., the game will be seen on CNBC. In Canada, the game will be on TSN and RDS2.

    What is with these 8 pm start times?

      They don’t want two games starting at the same time, they can’t have day games during the week, there are understandable limits on what they can do to keep sponsors and season ticket buyers from screaming.

    Another 9 PM start time. This is getting crazy.

    The Western Conference/ Red Headed stepchild. CNBC with the B crew again. Nice.

    So, for how long does Chicago have to complain a la Detroit to get in the East? I’d rather they not, but this is ridiculous.

    I thought part of the “pros” of moving to more localized divisions and divisional postseason play was to eliminate these late start times in the first two rounds. Now, instead of having only 3 or 4 games run until 11:30/midnight in a series, every single game does.

    What is the point of having them on different networks if they’re going to be scheduled as if they were on one?

    Not exactly the best way to “grow the sport,” if that is something they care about.
