Re: 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

Really happy all games will be on live in their entirety.

Should be an interesting year, with some "new" teams expected to make good runs (STL, NASH, NYR).

Doubleheader on NBC this Sunday? Have they done that before?

Sort of surprised to see BOS/WSH on NBC twice, you'd think they'd throw CHI or NYR on there once.

Re: 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

Seems like they're treating NHLN as the last resort since it is airing most of the FLA/NJ series. I wonder what games they'll actually have US broadcast teams covering, and which will be CBC/TSN feeds.

My first round predictions

Rangers in 6
Bruins in 7
Devils in 5
Penguins in 6

Canucks in 7
Blues in 5
Coyotes in 6
Predators in 7

Re: 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

The NBC DH is new. There will also be a DH the following Sunday (probably PIT/PHI and BOS/WSH if they go 6, with NSH/DET as the next choice).

As for NYR on NBC, no way NBC would have a game vs. Ottawa on the main network. If the Rangers had drawn the Caps, that would have drawn the NBC treatment for sure. NBC priorities are:
1) a game featuring 2 of the more TV-friendly teams (basically: NYR, PIT, PHI, WSH, BOS, DET, CHI, BUF)
2) a game featuring 1 of those teams vs. another American team
3) a game featuring 2 American teams

PIT/PHI will certainly be treated as the marquee series and get Doc, Edzo (when available) and McGuire in a full NBC production.

WAS/BOS will be treated #2, a full NBC production and given that it's on different days from PIT/PHI will also likely get Doc, Edzo (when available), and McGuire.

Strader/Engblom are mostly working DET/NSH so that will likely be a full NBC production.

I expect to see RSN simulcasts for NJ/FLA (since I think that's what TSN is using).

I expect a number of CBC simulcasts for LA/VAN.

Then for the other 3 series, you could get a mix of things. I think Forsland is calling some games, so those would be NBC productions. Comcast owns the CSNs that cover the Blackhawks and Sharks so could see simulcasting there.

Re: 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

Wish Gary Thorne would be hired by Comcast/NBC for the playoffs. Between him, Doc, and Strader (who I think does a pretty good job), all the good games would usually be covered.

Wonder how much it costs NBC to pick up the Canadian feeds?

Re: 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

That would be great. The Thorne/Clement combo at ESPN was the best, imo.

Nervous about the first round. Probably less pressure on the Sharks this time around since they're the underdog.

Probably little to nothing....they probably have it in their deal with the NHL built in, and CBC/TSN very well could be taking NBC-produced feeds for certain games.

Re: 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

Eh, not that comfortable with Washington in the first round---Bruins matched up better against Ottawa. Still, I think the Bs playoff experience from last year is going to help a lot. I don't think they're a clear favorite to win the cup again, but they've got a pretty well rounded team. They're going to miss Horton though, and I hope one of their under-the-radar players steps up for them with some big post-season goals like Ryder did last year.

Re: 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

Getting ready to head out to watch the Pens game with a bunch of fans in a bar because I can't get them on TV here. (I'd like to head to the big screen at the Consol some time, but too far and too cold tonight.)

Looking forward to a great series (and Pens win).

Re: 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

I'm pretty sure I saw a Pens fan in a bear costume near the Flyers bench as they went out for warmups.

Edit: looks like it's a bear and a wolf

Re: 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

and for the record my prediction is Predators in 6....but come on. six penalties w/ an almost full 2 minute 5-3 in the first fucking period of the first game?

Re: 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

Linesmen having a tough night in Pittsburgh. There was a questionable wave off of an icing call on the Pens third goal, and then Briere was clearly offsides on the Flyers goal.

Pens need to pick it up, Flyers have been pushing this whole period.

Going to OT in Pittsburgh. Flyers get two in the third to tie it.

Let's go Flyers. Briere hat trick to finish it up? Or another 5 OT game perhaps?

Re: 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

Flyers controlled the game from the start of the second on. Pens need to play more than one solid period to beat a team like that.
