. Of course the home team is going to dictate when the game is played. They aren't going to play at 5 local until the conference finals.
The Hawks home games were either at 7 or 8. It was 8 to make it easier on the fans in PHX. With 2 CTZ teams, they don't have to worry about that. I don't understand why you think it's safe to say that they'll play later. That makes zero sense.
Yeah, I know. The point remains though. In 3 of the 6 games, the Hawks/Coyotes series was the late game and in one of Chicago's home games, the time was moved up.
And, as I type this, I noticed two 8:30 starts in Chicago's 4 first games. That's 9:30 Eastern, which will be another late game.
