    Does anyone else think it’s kind of crazy they haven’t announced the schedule for game 3 yet? If they’re going to schedule it during the day it would be nice to know in advance so I can book the afternoon off. It’s not like game 3 is dependent on how the series are going so I don’t understand why they wouldn’t give people more notice.

    I assume everyone will have to take a turn on the afternoon games, I just find it frustrating that they can’t give fans a reasonable amount of notice.

    Not necessarily for two reasons:

    A. If any series ends after 3, then at least 1 team doesnt need to play the early afternoon game (assuming the team ending at 3 gsmes already played an early afternoon game).

    B. If I determined the playoff schedule, I would not put teams that are the big draws in the afternoon no matter what. Money > "Fairness" to the league.


    Edit: Or I would at least keep the big draw teams until last so that if anybody sweeped, they wouldnt have to be an early afternoon game.

    3 games in 5. 4 in 6. 5 games in 8 nights.

    Interesting to see how Columbus grinds us out with no warm up after a 5 month layoff. Matthews shot isn't their issue. Basic biology is. Their style of play requires a real pre-season with checking and intensity.

    I work continental night shift so I actually hate the schedule for the first two games. I miss all of the Sunday game and can maybe watch the 1st period of the 4pm Tuesday game. Games 3-5 I'm good with any time.

    Canes and Rangers game 4 is also that day, and since it's a game 4 it wouldn't be played if there's a sweep. Thus it leaves our game up in the air.

    "Ooof boss, just finished my lunch hour and holy crap I got some bad heartburn/diahreah going on, think I need to take off early today, promise I'll make up for it tomorrow"

    Me if it's a 4pm start.

    Sorry, this COVID shit sucks, and I need to watch these games live and I'll have to get creative. I never call in or take sick days, but might need to start considering that type of thing.

    It's truly a shame that the NHL didn't consider StatsNightHeroes work schedule when putting this together.
