Devils First Round Schedule

108 posts in this topic

Friday the 13th, hockey players are superstitious as it is and to be playing on a Friday the 13th. Must be a NHL conspiracy against the Devils. The Devils also didn't get any weekend games at home for full house attendance.

Paul Maurice is picking us to go to the Finals and lose to Vancouver.

NHL BS, next time Marty should say he needs the rest to pull reverse psychological BS. How biased can they be I'm not going to go into it but we were the hottest team 6 wins In a row and not a mention of it on NHL.com BS site. Oh well. LET'S GO DEVILS!!!!!

Hopefully JJ will be back for the second round if any of the series go seven games. Devils have to show desperation here and take it to the net every time.Not too worried about the long layoff, PDB has done a good job at keeping the guys fresh and they normally play with a jump after some time. Yes, Marty could be another story.

All this bias stuff is ridiculous guys. Do you really think they're sitting in their little war rooms going "Hmmm, how can we best screw the Devils and their fans?"

We're playing the Florida Panthers. It's not going to draw the ratings Pens/Flyers or Bruins/Caps will. As such, we start on the night when ratings are traditionally crap anyway.

I dont think this is possible. We'd be lucky if he was back by the Finals, if at all.

Wait I don't uderstand the problem with the channels. Its between VS and NHL network. My basic cable package gets those channels- so I will get every game right?

I would imagine so. My assumption is that MSG+ gets the games listed on NHL Network, and then NHL Network picks up one of the local feeds (either MSG+ or whatever Florida uses) to air on NHL Network.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I can't imagine NHL Network sends it's own crew to Sunrise or Newark for a first-round matchup, right?

MSG+ gets all the games locally in round 1. National coverage becomes exclusive in Round 2

Unsure. It could be an NBC produced game on NHL Network. It is unclear what the playoff plans are regarding that.

If they use the local feed with NHLN graphics inserted my guess it will be MSG+ used

It's all about tv. Leagues will rearrange the sched every which way to obtain the best tv scenario. See MLB playoffs.

It's an all national TV 1st round, this is what happens, there's alot of weird schedules, at least they stay on rhythm more or less during it.

This would be a CI exclusive normally.

This......if we were playing the pens,then Weds it would be.

Most if not all of their playoff games at The Rock have been weeknights and have been all sellouts.

Yup, and unfortunately NJ vs. Florida is a terrible TV draw. But notice that the Devils and Rangers first 4 games are on alternating nights. Maybe the league wanted to avoid conflicting games in the same TV market...

The league places us absolutely last to play. Every other team will have a little break heading into rd 2. We won't, unless we sweep. Sucks..

The way things have gone the last 5 years, let's worry about the 2nd round if we get there eh? It'd be a nice problem to worry about.

If you're local you get it on MSG I'm assuming. Only one game is on VS.

Isn't NHL network a pay network? Someone in CA can watch all games except our series unless they pay for NHL network.

Three game 7's are scheduled for the 26th (including ours) and three are the 25th. Quit whining.

This constant crybaby sh!t that the league is out too get us is embarrassing as a Devils fan.

If we don't win it before 7, with 7 being on the road, that doesn't bode well for our chances down the road anyway. Besides, we might not have to play the Pens/Flyers even if we do advance.
