First round schedule

Courtesy of reader Nathan, who posted this in the comments at 2:00 AM last night, here's what the first round will look like:
Game 1: Friday, April 21st 7:00 PM Edmonton at Detroit OLN, CBC Game 2: Sunday, April 23rd 1:00 PM Edmonton at Detroit NBC, CBC Game 3: Tuesday, April 25th 10:00 PM Detroit at Edmonton CBC, OLN, FSN Game 4: Thursday, April 27th 9:30 PM Detroit at Edmonton CBC, OLN, FSN Game 5: Saturday, April 29th 3:00 PM Edmonton at Detroit NBC, CBC (If necessary) Game 6: Monday, May 1st TBD Detroit at Edmonton CBC, OLN, FSN (If necessary) Game 7: Wednesday, May 3rd 7:00 PM Edmonton at Detroit OLN, CBC, FSN (If necessary)
So, a Friday start after all, despite the fact the Rangers and Sabres are not playing each other in the first round. This puts a small crimp in my plans, because a Saturday start worked a lot better with the deadline on my paper but all this means is my buffer zone is smaller. Once that's over, we'll be in playoff mode as much as possible. By the way, the Wings finished the season in ignoble fashion, losing 6-3 to Nashville last night and snapping their away-win streak at 12. But that's over now. It's playoff time, baby! Update (1:11 PM): I've added the schedule to the sidebar on the right along with links to Edmonton blogs and media. Can't say I'm too thrilled to have to watch the games on OLN all playoffs. Well, I'll have to at least until I go home for the summer and switch to CBC, I guess. Good thing there will be some NBC games! Update (15:09 PM): A reader has pointed out that, according to the team's site, FSN will in fact broadcast Games 3 and 4 as well as 6 and 7, if necessary. So, we won't have to suffer through OLN broadcasts of the first round beyond Friday night's game. Update (3:26 PM): Ah, the anonymous Oiler fan flames begin: "I think it is safe to assume the losing streak will continue and the Oil will emege victorious. See ya on the links Wings!" Why not leave a name next time, friend? And, one game is hardly a streak.

Yeah, you're lucky you get to watch some on CBC. Us poor souls on the west side of the state just have to deal with OLN. But hey, it's better than nothing, right?

According to the Red Wings official site, other than the first game and games aired on NBC, the rest of them are also supposed to be aired on FSN. I sure hope so. I, too, am not a fan of OLN.

Good luck with your paper!

Go Wings!!

Yeah, on FSN last night, Ken said they would be doing the game on Friday night. Here's the link to the official page that lists FSN as showing most of the games:

Let's just hope CBC also covers them in the later rounds. NBC and OLN are terrible...

GO WINGS!!!!!
