6 PM start may be difficult for some to make the beginning of the game.
Cue the re-locationist...look at the empty arena, they can't even sell out a round 2 playoff game.
You know, if the arena really isn't full at 6, we get what we deserve. In many markets, you'd have people paying double to be there to watch a game at 2 a.m.
I understand we're not other markets, but that's kind of the point. This is the big time. If we can't make it there in time with 48 hours notice, we just have to suck up whatever criticism comes.
I'm pretty sure that if the team makes the next round, 4:30 and 5:00 starts will be a possibility. When you're the only game of the night, they start you in early prime time in the east coast. I think the Ducks played at least two 5:00 p.m. weekday games, including the Stanley Cup clincher a few years ago.
Yet another reason to stop being stubborn and simply adapt to the rest of the country and follow DST.
Most t-shirt giveaways involve a sponsor, so they might get one lined up.
Frys had shirts for the last game 1, bet they are ready to go for this game 1...even if they are the lame shirts with nothing on them like the dbacks did for their "blackout" in game 4 last year. It was just a black t-shirt
I figured that we would get the Friday night game. First, the NHL and NBC want at least one game per day. Second, it would seem one of the Western Conference games may show up as an NBC afternoon game. If that is the case, then NBC is going to choose LA vs SL since their TV market sizes are LA (2) and SL (21) versus PHX (13) and NASH (29). In TV it's all about the numbers.
If anyone is close to or thinking of making the trip to Nashville, there are good seats on ticketmaster. In fact, the seating map looks pretty much just like ours does for games 1 and 2. Decent options in the Yotes shoot twice end.
