POTENTIAL GAME 7 TRIPLEHEADER TOMORROW ACROSS NBCSN AND CNBC

Two Game 7 matchups are set for Wednesday night on NBCSN and CNBC, as the (1) Colorado Avalanche look to hold serve at home against the (4) Minnesota Wild, and the (3) Los Angeles Kings look to complete an historic comeback against the (2) San Jose Sharks.

CNBC’s coverage on Wednesday will start at 9:30 p.m. ET with Game 7 between the Avalanche and Wild. The home team has won each of the first six games of this series, including Minnesota’s 5-2 win on Monday night, as Wild captain Zach Parise scored the game-winning goal and recorded four points to force Game 7 back in Denver. The winner of Wild-Avalanche will go on to face the defending Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks in the second round.

NBCSN will present coverage of Game 7 on Wednesday between the Sharks and Kings at 10 p.m. ET tomorrow night, as the Kings look to pull off an improbable comeback with four straight victories to erase a 3-0 series deficit. Justin Williams broke a 1-1 tie with just over eight minutes remaining in the third period on Monday night, as the Kings went on to win 4-1, and force Game 7 back in San Jose.

Only three teams have ever rallied from a 0-3 deficit to win a Stanley Cup Playoff series (’42 Toronto Maple Leafs, ’75 New York Islanders, ’10 Philadelphia Flyers). The winner of Kings-Sharks will go on to face the Anaheim Ducks in the second round.

With two Game 7 matchups already for set for tomorrow night, a Flyers win in Game 6 tonight against the Rangers would set the stage for a Game 7 tripleheader on Wednesday night across NBCSN and CNBC. Game coverage would begin with Game 7 between the Rangers and Flyers from Madison Square Garden at 7 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

Friday and Sunday Night Matchups May Be Added to NBCSN, Dependent Upon Playoff Implications

STAMFORD, Conn. – April 7, 2014 – The NHL’s “Push for the Playoffs” features up to 10 games with playoff implications in the final week of the regular season across NBC and NBCSN, including T.J. Oshie and the St. Louis Blues against the Detroit Red Wings in the NHL Game of the Week on NBC Sunday at 12:30 p.m. ET, and Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins hosting Detroit on Wednesday Night Rivalry at 8 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

Oshie and the Western Conference-leading Blues (52-19-7, 111 points) appear three times across NBC and NBCSN this week, including their regular-season finale at home against the Red Wings (37-27-14, 88 points), who currently hold the first wild card spot in the Eastern Conference and hope to extend their 22-year streak of consecutive playoff appearances. Veteran play-by-play announcer Dave Strader and analyst Brian Engblom will have the call from Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Mo. on Sunday afternoon.

*******************************************************************************

NEW PLAYOFF FORMAT FEATURES EMPHASIS ON DIVISION RIVALS PRIOR TO CONFERENCE FINALS

The NHL is employing a new playoff format for the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs that allows for a fixed bracket and emphasizes division rivals in the first two rounds. Following is a breakdown of the official format:

  • The top three finishers in each Division automatically qualify and are designated No. 1, 2 and 3 seeds. Among the remaining teams in each Conference, the two teams with the best records qualify as Wild Cards and are designated No. 4 seeds.
  • The first two rounds are divisional brackets. No. 1 plays No. 4, and No 2. plays No. 3, with winners advancing to play each other.
  • Within each Conference, the Wild Card team with the better record will be assigned to the bracket of the Divisional leader with the lesser record.
  • Home-ice advantage through the first two rounds goes to the higher seeded team, regardless of regular-season records.
  • For the Conference Finals and the Stanley Cup Final, home-ice advantage goes to the team with the better regular-season record

FIRST ROUND

Every first-round Stanley Cup Playoff game will be televised on a national platform.

In order to televise as many as four games on a given day/night, the NBC Sports Group will utilize NBC, NBCSN, CNBC and the NHL Network to carry first-round games.

NBCSN will be the primary home of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, offering coverage of one or two games virtually every night of the first round. NBC will present exclusive afternoon coverage during the weekends of April 19-20 and 26-27.

CNBC and NHL Network will also provide live coverage in primetime. Games airing on NBCSN, CNBC and the NHL Network will be subject to local blackouts in the first round.

SECOND ROUND

NBC Sports Group’s Stanley Cup Playoff exclusivity originates with the second round. Beginning in the second round and continuing through the Stanley Cup Final, all games will air exclusively on NBC, NBCSN, or CNBC.

NBCSN will serve as the primary home for second-round coverage, offering one or two games virtually every night. When necessary, CNBC will provide live coverage in primetime, although more infrequently than in the first round. NBC will present exclusive afternoon coverage during the weekend of May 3-4.

STUDIO COVERAGE

Robust pre-game, post-game and intermission studio programming throughout the 2014 NHL postseason will originate from NBC Sports Group’s state-of-the-art International Broadcast Center located in Stamford, Conn., except during the Stanley Cup Final, when the studio will be live from the game sites.

During the first round, NBC Sports Group will operate two studio shows. On most weeknights, fans can expect NHL studio programming for games airing on both NBCSN and CNBC, sometimes simultaneously. NHL Live will usually begin one hour prior to game time, with post-game coverage airing immediately after the final game of the night.
