Things is this: The football games start at 3pm and 6:30pm EST. Putting the Rangers-Pens or any hockey game for that matter on national TV would have to be done during the day. It's possible this is done locally at night, but NBC would want to milk the Crosby factor IMO. It is possible to do it too. It has been done even when the season is not compressed. Pitt goes to Philly to open. Rangers go to Boston. Short trips both ways. Flight/train take a little over an hour. Wouldn't be that big of a stretch IMO.
