The Hockey Marathon

Today all teams in the NHL will complete games in a timespan of about 13 and a half hours. Due to the scheduling including the games in Europe, it lends itself to a marathon. The schedule of the games looks something like this:

Time (ET) Game 1 Game 2 Game 3 Game 4 Game 5 Game 6 Game 7 Game 8 Game 9
12:00 AM CHI-FLA
12:30 CHI-FLA
1:00 PM CHI-FLA

2:00 CHI-FLA
2:30 CHI-FLA (OT)
3:00 DET-STL VAN-COL
3:30 DET-STL VAN-COL
4:00 DET-STL VAN-COL
4:30 DET-STL VAN-COL
5:00 DET-STL VAN-COL
5:30 DET-STL (OT) VAN-COL (OT)

11:30 SJS-ANA CAL-EDM PHX-LAK  
11:30 SJS-ANA CAL-EDM PHX-LAK  
12:00 SJS-ANA CAL-EDM PHX-LAK  
12:30 SJS-ANA (OT) CAL-EDM (OT) PHX-LAK  
1:00 AM PHX-LAK (OT)  


Since today is my last night of summer break (school starts again next monday), I'll make a Marathon. For me, living in central europe, this means I'll be watching hockey from 6 PM on Saturday to 6 AM on Monday. Woohoo.

I'll be watching Chicago and Florida, Red Wings and Blues, Flyers and Devils and Sharks and Ducks with other Overtime periods or games to fill the void. Maybe I'll stay even up to finish off Phoenix and LA. I wonder though what I'll be doing for the one and a half-hour break in between.

What will you be watching?

Well, my TV will be on hockey from the time the Hawks-Panthers game starts until the last game ends. I usually pick the games I think are going to be good and focus on those and then flip to others during commercial breaks/intermissions to see what's going on in those. The games I'll probably focus on are:

CHI-FLA
STL-DET
CAR-BOS
PIT-NYI
CGY-EDM
LA-PHX

Other than when the Kings are playing, if one game turns into a blowout or another game looks to be better I'll switch to it. For instance if the Pens-Isles game turns into a blowout I'll browse all the other games on at the time for a couple minutes to see which other one I'd rather focus on after I get to see Tavares a bit. Only time I tune off the Kings game is during intermissions and I'll favor Flames-Oilers over Sharks-Ducks.

CHI-FLA
STL-DET

Then hopefully PIT-NYI, if not, then PHI-NJD or TOR-WAS. If I'm still up at 04.30am I'll watch PHO-LA too.

Excellent thread. Here's how I plan to spend my "marathon" Saturday of Hockey.

9am, wake up clean the kitchen, prepare food list for Shrimp Corn Chowder and Lobster Rolls for today\tonite's events.

10am Go shopping for said items, make sure there's at least 36 beers in the fridge.

1130am Get the Chowder on a simmer and fire up both 42" plasmas.

12pm: Bottom plasma will feature CHI-FLA while the top TV has NHLN with highlights from last nite.

3pm: VAN-COL on bottom plasma, DET-STL round 2 on top plasma.

5pm: Crack the first beer.

6pm: Prepare lobster rolls.

630pm: HNIC pregame show.

7pm: Flyers-Devils on bottom plasma, Toronto-Washington feature CBC game on top plasma

830: Make sure at least 5 beers have been drank.

10pm: Edmonton-Calgary on bottom plasma, SJ-ANA on top plasma.

1am: Hopefully still alive and can see straight while dozing off to our first After Hours on CBC for the year.

It's going to be a good one!

CHI-FLA
DET-STL & VAN-COL (will flip between them)
OTT-NYR
CAL-EDM & SJS-ANA (will flip between them)

I'll definitely be here for the 7pm and 10pm games, probably not all of the early ones. Great day, though.
