It's showing up on NBC4 in my DirecTV guide for next Saturday, so there's another data point of confirmation.

It may turn out tha tway, but until the NHL releases it, it's not official
And as hockey fan, and a Kings fan, they are the champs adn deserve the national spotlight. I'm gonna be pretty pissed off if I can't see that banner raising, ring ceremony and game just because I live on the East Coast. I cant' believe NBC wouldn't air the game nationally.
They could have done Flyers at 1 EST, Kings at 4 EST and Rangers at 7 EST.
I'll wait for the official release.
If I remember right (and I am speculating), the last time there were regional games simulcast on NBC (Hockey Day in America is what comes to mind), they offered the games you could not see on Center Ice. No guarantee they will do that this time, but it's a possibility.
I would also put Fox Sports West doing the game at a near 0% likelihood. This isn't NBC Sports Network. This is national NBC. NBC wants the ratings.
