Stanley Cup final schedule
The National Hockey League today released the schedule of dates for the 2007 Stanley Cup Final, which will begin Monday, May 28 in Anaheim or Detroit.I wish I'd posted my thoughts before this came out, as this is exactly what I thought they'd do with the schedule (although I'm surprised the Saturday games aren't in the afternoon).
The start time for all Stanley Cup Final games will be 8 p.m., ET.
VERSUS will telecast Games 1 and 2 in the U.S., while NBC will broadcast Games 3 through 7. In Canada, CBC and RDS will provide coverage for the entire series. All games will be broadcast on NHL Radio.
