Usually everything is TV dependent so I was going to post something like this:
NYR/NYI vs Pens = Wed, Fri, Sun NBC National game
OTT vs Pens = Thu, Sat HNIC Game

You can get a fairly accurate prediction if you base it on TV and market size.

However....
A few things change that this year
-The CEC is booked Saturday May 4th for an arena football game (also May 18th & 25th, don't know if those can be moved? seem to recall one was moved last year)

-CBC will want Toronto for the Saturday HNIC game.

-The condensed schedule might throw out all the standard consideration.

Usually the TV Networks hold a draft in order to choose series.
CBC and Sportsnet usually want the big Canadian markets with high profile American teams.
NBC always wants an American only matchup.
The Canadian TV networks want big Saturday night games.
NBC wants big Sunday afternoon games.
