Did I miss it? or did they announce something?
it was last night
wings won 16-13
in front of 9,646 at the spectrum
Either April 23rd or 25th
Depends on playoff picture and dates....Orlando is in Minnesota April 24th for a night game.....so we looking at either Friday night or early Sunday evening 4-5pm
I thought the crowd was bigger.
The only reason I know he was making it up is because the Wings won.
id expect the announcement to be made in the next 3 weeks
have to see what the NHL playoff schedule is....NBA also..Sixers still have a chance at making it, mathmatically....my guess is this
If Flyers and Sixers make playoffs......looking at a Sunday night game....if just Flyers make it....Friday night game
who are the sixers?
there the people who try to play basketball....red/white/blue jerseys....shorts...play on a wooden court.....ring a bell?
nah not really
and in all honestly they arent making the playoffs
they are 7.5 out with 22 games to play
they in all honestly need to just lose the next 22 games
to get a decent pick
so im willing to bet the Wachovia Center isnt saving any dates for them this year
Contractually, they have to until they are officially eliminated.
For the Flyers, The NHL likes Sunday 3:00pm games for NBC. They would not schedule an event after a playoff game, since they can go on forever with OT.
Someone used Sixers and playoffs in the same sentence:rotfl::rotfl: i'd even bet on the Wings making it over them.
Is that a fat joke?
yeah they might like it but Comcast likes all first and second round games on Comcast Sportsnet only!! So I dont see any 3 oclock NBC games in there future (Maybe if away only)
It's not that Comcrap likes the first and second rounds on CSN, that's dictated by the NHL. The Conference finals and Stanley Cup Finals have always been on whoever covers the league (Hockey Night in Canada, NBC, Versus), that's a contractual obligation.
TV almost always determines when these games are played. Just look at the NBA and MLB playoffs.
yes it all hinges on the tv contracts, no different than baseball, where the nice Sunday afternoon Phils games are ruined by espn and changed to 8pm.
I would be p1ssed off if I bought a Sunday package expressly to take the kids to day games just to have it it moved to 8pm on a school night.
Would they object to a huge "ESPN SUCKS" sign?
No but you will get thrown out for the other one..."VERSUS SWALLOWS." The sunglassed Comcast gestappo will come escort you out....
So I guess April 18 is out.
Fine... hmm, lets see what my option are
April 23rd game - hmm, I could go to Philadelphia on April 22 or 23 - I ll decide on that when it become official. Then fly to Minnesota from Philadelphia Airport on April 24 for 2nd end of back to back game. I could stay in Minnesota until April 30 and fly to Orlando, if I know, beforehand, that Titans will be hosting first round playoff game. If Titans do host first round playoff game, it will be either May 1 or May 2 due to the fact that Orlando Predators of Arena Football League have home game on April 30th.
April 25th game - hmm, I could fly to Minnesota on April 19 and stay at my friends house until April 25 and then fly to Philadelphia. Then go home to NYC on April 26.
Either date would be fine with me. The sooner, the better
