The match-up will also come into play. If they get Ottawa, good chance they have a Saturday night game as CBC will want them for HNIC and they are the only Canadian team in the East. On the otherhand, CBC might also want Pitt for HNIC as Crosby gets interest from all over Canada.

The Knicks play Sunday afternoon 4/15 and while they could get the arena ready for a sunday night Rangers game, it seems like it would make more sense to play it on Saturday.
Yep, all good points. So right now the dead dates at the Garden include...

4/10 - Mana
4/11 - Mana
4/13 - Knicks
4/15 Knicks (1 PM start though, could have a 7:30 Rangers game)
4/17 - Knicks
4/19 - Nickelback (Good God)
4/25 - Knicks

I think it's safe to say the Rangers will open up Thursday/Saturday. Because of that, the Nickelback concert shouldn't interfere either as if they follow the every other day routine, game 5 should be at MSG the day after on the 20th.
