Actually the schedule is this - 3:00 pm ET - everyone gets to see the banner ceremony. 3:25 pm ET - puckdrop of Kings-Blackhawks - everyone sees this. 3:35 pm ET - Flyers-Pens viewers will be switched to their game for their puckdrop - Kings-Blackhawks viewers stay with their game.
So this will be like what NBC does on Hockey Day In America - staggered starting times where some viewers will see some action (10 mins or so) of other games before switching to their game. In this case its just two games and not the usual three games that HDIA showed in years past. (This year for HDIA on Feb 17 however there will be no staggered starts as NBC is only showing two games - 12:30 pm ET-Sabres-Pens and 3:30 pm ET-Blackhawks-Kings.)
