So does the ECF winner want the Kings to win tonight and have a while to sit and potentially lose their hot play, or do you root for them to keep playing so they don't have as much rest?

I don't understand why Versus\NBC Sports cover 2 out of the 7 games, why doesn't NBC air them all? And I really don't understand why they switched that pattern from games 1+2 being off network tv, to games 3+4.

I'm hoping for the series to go as long as possible so their players have less time to rest and heal whatever undisclosed injuries they are playing with. Also as long as the Devils win this series I'm still holding out hope for Phoenix to come back and beat LA.

Why lock yourself into a schedule now where the first game will start Wednesday when both series could theoretically be over by Friday? That'd be four days without NHL hockey.

100% root for them to keep playing. It's always the safe bet.

Then again: If the Rags win, I'd much rather have the Kings rested, while the Rags will have played at least 20 games getting there.

Its a double edged sword. That break could allow them to heal, but it could also turn them cold. Keep playing and they can stay sharp (IE us in the Philly series).

Im with Jimmy though, I don't really care. We still have to beat the Rags two more times.

Is this the NHL's way of saying that the Kings are going to the finals? Because if it's Coyotes v. Devils then Coyotes have home ice advantage.

Just pointing that out.

It's funny how they determine draft position by who wins the division (Phoenix would pick 28th, behind whoever loses this series despite having a worse record cause they're a division winner) but when it comes to home-ice it's strictly who has more points - as it should be. And both the Devils and Rangers have more points than either West team.

The Kings have been having big breaks all throughout the playoffs, it hasn't hurt them yet. The only thing a big break might do is ensure that they face 'zero' adversity through the first three rounds and are untested in that way before the Finals.

As someone who has class every Tuesday and Thursday night the finals schedule and the ECF schedule have been miracles to me. Compare that with the Florida and Philly series and I was recording games and up until 2am watching them.

Those are some long flights between games 5, 6, 7 with only one day between... but then again I guess it was the same vs Anaheim.
