2009 Stanley Cup Finals Schedule

With the release of the CBC press release earlier today, I guess it is time for me to throw up the schedule. Game 2 is still TBD and I am pretty sure I have read over hundreds of different explanations as to why that is the case (Taylor Swift, waiting on the NBA, The Lost Templar, among others). So it's the Red Wings and Penguins re-match and it starts this Saturday. NBC and Versus has not released press releases yet so I can't confirm the sideline reporters yet, they are just my best guess (all times eastern)

#2 Detroit Red Wings vs. #4 Pittsburgh Penguins
Game 1: Red Wings 3-1
Game 2: Red Wings 3-1
Game 3: Penguins 4-2
Game 4: Penguins 4-2
Game 5: Red Wings 5-0
Game 6: Penguins 2-1
Game 7: Penguins 2-1
Pittsburgh wins the series 4-3.

It's an awful schedule but, what can you do, I guess. I do plan on live blogging the whole Stanley Cup Finals (and on the days of NBA Finals overlap, it will be a double live blog. Aspeaking of live blogs, I will be live blogging tonight's Cavs-Magic game at 8:30. I'll probably be sending out the email in a few hours or so. I Hope you can join me!


  1. what can you do when NBC would rather show 30 Rock and The Office reruns on a Thursday night, rather than a game 7?

  2. It is plain and simple, the NHL is only concerned about money and TV ratings. They care nothing about the quality of play, the quality of the referees, who have decided at least two of the four Stanley Cup final games so far due to favoring one team over the other and not calling everything consistently. The officiating is the absolute worst I have ever witnessed in a Stanley Cup Finals, ever!!!!! But, obviously the NHL doesn't give a sh!t at all what the fans think or feel, they just want us to watch. The pathetic officiating, the excessive interference and injury causing hits is of no concern to the upper management of the NHL. It is destroying youth hockey and adult hockey, because now all players feel that they can do the same, which will help to destroy hockey outside of the NHL, because USA Hockey and most youth hockey programs will have to deal with impressionable kids and adults who expect to get away with penalties, etc.

    All I can say is that the NHL can go to hell, which is clearly where they are heading!!!!!!!!!
