Midnight is just Amur's regular game starting time, which I believe is 6 p.m. for them. I'm sure if they had financial incentive to do so (such as a lucrative TV deal), they would happily move a game or two to start a few hours earlier, especially at the weekends, which would then make the game coincide with prime-time on American TV.

After all, the NHL has been obliging NBC in this way for years -- NBC even gets to decide which teams are allowed to play a weekend matinée game. (No chance for you to watch a Panthers vs. Hurricanes matchup on NBC at that time.)
