We kinda know what the Flyers’ playoff schedule will look like, per the NHL.

The series will begin Wednesday night at 7 PM in Pittsburgh. Everything else depends on tonight’s Florida-Boston game.

If the Bruins beat the Panthers, this would be the schedule for the Flyers-Penguins series:

I would expect game 2 to be on NBC and probably game 5, if necessary. There’s a pair of two-day breaks in this scenario between games 1 and 2 and games 4 and 5.

If the Panthers beat the Bruins, this would be the schedule:

I would also expect game 3 to be on NBC and probably the same for game 6. In this scenario, there’s only one two-day break between games 3 and 4.

Props to the NHL for giving us a rough outline of the playoff schedule instead of waiting until 11 tonight to release it. We should find out TV coverage after the Florida-Boston game.

This also gives us a layout for when the Sixers might start their series, which will also be affected by tonight’s Bruins game:

Based on this, the Sixers will begin their series on Sunday if the Bruins win tonight. A loss would probably mean a Saturday start for the Sixers.

  1. This post is a total waste of time

    We will know in a few hours what it is, so why bother?

    This is typical from this Syracuse kid.

    CB can and should do better than this sort of bubblegum “journalism”

  2. Jason Myrt, inventor of the Doug P stunod meter, creamed his suit pants giving “G” the 100 point puck.

  3. Some nice drinking coming up with the boys when the Sixers and flyers playoff games are on

  4. I actually think this is the best article in the history of CB. Good to know. Go Panthers. Let’s get two games this weekend.
