At 12:35 p.m. PT, half of the country will be switched over to Penguins-Flyers. Overall, I like this opening day strategy from NBC, though I wonder if a better move might have been Penguins-Flyers at 9:30AM followed up by Kings-Blackhawks at 12:30PM."

If they go that far hopefully they'll put the game on Center Ice. It's just not a good PR move after a long lockout to blackout fans who pay you money just to see their team on tv! Especially on opening night!
