    Major bummer, I’m a season ticket holder that has been to zero games in the playoffs because my hospital work schedule is made so far in advance and I’ve had bad luck. I called my rep yesterday and he said game 1 would be Saturday if sharks won, so I was rooting hard for them. Just had my hopes dashed to see a playoff game with this stupid change. Yes I’m whining I wanna be in the garden! Guess I’ll just have to wait until the cup finals!

    That is what the NHL told NBC as well - we are LIVID

    NBC private interweb is going bonkers - NHL was EXPLICIT about the scenario all day - rumor is an intern at MLBAM which handles the NHL website posted the wrong info

    This isn't a Mickey Mouse league - more like Daffy Duck

    That is f***ng unbelievable if true. So everyone's Mother's Day gets messed up because of a clerical error by an intern?

    NBCSN said right after Game 7 that WCF would start Saturday so does that mean they relied on the supposed incorrectly posted info?

    This was posted in the Playoff thread tonight

    I was hoping the B's were playing Saturday because Sunday is "Mother's Day" and we are going out to eat in the afternoon so I might miss some of the game.

    If I had it my way, I would want game time on Sunday to be @ 7 or 7:30 eastern, not just because of Mothers Day, but because I hate matinee hockey games

    There is a minor conflict at the San Jose SAP Center on Sunday with a figuring skating show that is at 4 PM PT - but the NHL said the Sharks told them they would move that to 7:30 PM.

    Same here. I hate matinee games, especially during playoffs! On Mother's Day? Lot of us will probably be recording while we are elsewhere that day, hoping no one has the game on their phones or yells out the score. My poor son has to work until 5 pm, he is upset, too.

    I miss the days when NBC didn't have control over the playoffs.

    My son told me before he went to bed "Mom, history has the Bruins losing game three. Whenever they play on May 14, they lose, but be grateful Mom that it's not game 7!!!!"

    I told my overly optimistic son to git to bed, I don't want to hear anymore of that trash talk in my house! :laugh:

    Your son is correct. May 14 is my birthday. The Bruins lose every time they play on that day, for as long as I have been alive. Here's to this year being different!

    Things work different;y for everyone. Will never appease everyone.

    For example. This game time works out perfect for me.

    I should be able to stay awake for it.

    Hopefully it doesn't go to OT.

    Amen to that. I'll take a sweep!

    I don't even want to turn a profit on this, and it looks like I'll be lucky to recoup my cost of $335 for the pair. I thought that was a pretty reasonable total for a pair of conference final tickets, but the market in Carolina sucks ass right now
