It's the Stanley Cup Finals, and they still can't put all seven games on NBC?
I haven't been watching hockey this year, so I won't make a prediction, but I'll add a little historical perspective.
This is the first time the San Jose Sharks have made it to the Stanley Cup Finals; their debut season was in 1991-92. Prior to this year, they made it to the conference finals three times-- in '04, '10, and '11.
This is the Pittsburgh Penguins' fifth trip to the Stanley Cup Finals. They debuted in 1967-68. They're three-time former champions, winning the Cup in '91, '92, and '09, while losing in the Finals in '08.

I voted in the Name The Team contest when the Sharks first moved to the Bay Area (they were partial remnants of the Minnesota North Stars/Gund Family split when Minnesota moved to Dallas). I even had a deposit down for season tickets the opening year at the Cow Palace. The day we were supposed to go down and physically pick our seats I got news I was being transferred immediately to New York.
Originally posted by jerichofan717Yeah, I can see Game 2 being on NBCSN (since network is likely airing America's Got Talent or something)
But, what in the hell could NBC be airing on a Saturday night that would push a Stanley Cup Finals game to cable? The Belmont Stakes isn't even until the 11th.
PENS IN 6!
Some sites still said "TBD" - I think the deal is NBCSN MUST air two games, but they wouldn't want them to have Game 4 if it was a potential final game, maybe? If that was the case, we could speculate that if it's 1-1, Game 3 would be on NBC and Game 4 on NBCSN, but if it's 2-0, they might air Game 3 on NBCSN just in case and air an encore of "The Voice" on NBC....which would probably get more viewers maybe?
George Michael weighed his options. Maeby had chastised him for not taking risks, and what would be a bigger risk than perpetuating a lie about software just to ignite the passions of a woman? Of course it would be a lie, and since Maeby wouldn't know it was a lie, he wouldn't appear to be taking a risk. Perhaps the bigger risk was to tell his father he was lying, that he came up with it because he wanted his father to leave so he could enjoy what remained of his senior year. After all, he wondered, wouldn't that be the course of action taken by an overtly sexual man, a man who owns a pair of matador pants? He had not responded now for 41 seconds according to his unfailing internal clock, and it was time to come clean.

Well, don't know if my reasoning was correct or not, but the fact remains that as soon as we found out it was a 2-0 series, Game 3 was announced for NBCSN.
San Jose better catch fire at home or I WILL be shaving before my birthday...but not with my team holding the Cup.
I'll be going for sure. So far it looks like a group of about six of my friends will be making the trip over the Rockies. Should be an absolute blast...outdoors, 50,000 in attendance, and Gretzky plays his first oldtimers game.
