Both MSG and NBC on my FiOS guide have the timeslots from 12-3 on NBC and 12:30-3:30 on MSG as TBA. Would they have that quick of a turnaround for the teams after playing the night before in other cities?
I know the schedule will be compressed, but would they try and attempt this when there are the big football games on before? Could they steal rating with nothing on? That's what NBC/NHL would want to do. I wouldn't rule it out at this point.
Can't be a noon game with the teams playing the night before. Perhaps a 6pm start, but I don't see any earlier than that being a possibility.
