NHL brass basically hoping for injuries with this. JFC, how can this be justified? Don't want to go up against SNF? OK, at least have the balls to go up against MNF! And I seriously doubt anyone planning to watch the SCF cares that much about SNF or MNF, provided that the Cowboys or Bucs aren't involved.
Game 6 is scheduled for Monday Night. And the TV partners make the call on this stuff, which is NBC, who also carries Sunday Night Football. They are not going to schedule a potential cup clinching game to play on NBC Sports Network opposite SNF on their primary network.

The league and the PA should probably insist on no B2B in the playoffs past a certain point. I understand that these are unprecedented times and maybe I'm wrong about this, but it seems like an unnecessary risk to the players.

Need a Dallas win or at the very least 2OT. Tired of missing these due to Celtics.

More teams are going to start building themselves like Tampa and St Louis after this, and the sport will be worse because of it.

Tampa isn’t so obviously gooning like the Blues were. They have a lot more talent than the Blues too. The Blues won because Berube convinced the refs that the Blues shouldn’t get penalties.

Yes I’m still very angry.

Am I allowed to be slightly happy for Shattenkirk? Always good when a terrier has a chance to get on the Cup
