I've gotten to the building at 4:30pm after a Knicks game ended at 2:30, and they were still picking up the insulation under the basketball court. Usually, they're wrapped up with the switchover by 5:30 -- They usually need three hours for the switchover before the gates open. That gives them a 30-minute buffer before the gates open, and a 60-minute buffer before the pregame warmups begin at 6:30.

As for the possible Penguins game on the 20th, I don't have that confirmed, but I'd think it would be at night. NBCSN usually does a Sunday night game, so you'd think Pens/Rangers (if that's the game) would be the NBCSN game. They do have a timeslot in their schedule listed at "TBD" for Sunday Jan. 20 from 7pm - 10pm.
Didn't know it took that long. Thanks.

All I know is, if we're playing the Pens on a second of back to backs, I'm praying that Philly softens them up the night before. (Assuming that opening night includes Pens-Flyers on NBC)
