On a serious note, they likely had a formula based on last year's standings. Div Champ plays 2nd and 3rd place 5 times, 2nd place plays the champ and 4th place 5 times, and so on.

Yup and Penguins 5 times.

All three will likely be top 3 in pts in the East.

If they go to 4 vs Division teams then it will be 3 vs. the rest of the conference with 2 of those teams 4 times. I wonder how they would figure that out.

If that happens it will probably be the Caps or Sens. Maybe Buffalo due to proximity.

We'll find out tomorrow, hopefully.

EDIT -forget that, same twitter guy said they went back to 4 and 5 vs div

5 vs Pens & Flyers, smack in the face to the Rangers/Isles rivalry.

Whatever. Bring it on.

Why would they have Pens & Flyers as the 5x teams instead of the local rivals?

Flyers fans are probably saying the same thing about playing us.

We were 6-0 against them last year. It's highly unlikely we'll win all five games this year, but again, we match up well against them.

Does anyone really care about playing the Brooklanders?

I'm pretty sure Dolan loves the NHL's Marquee player coming to The Garden.

Did I say that? No. I just said its a great rivalry. And considering that the NHL makes the least revenue of the big 4, an extra marketable NBC game only helps them.

Plus, the more these teams beat each other up, the easier the climb is for the Rangers.

Oh geez. So going to base the schedule off what will help NBC get better ratings?

If that is really an issue then they are not good enough to win the Cup.

Tell me this. Do you think that Pens-Flyers is a weaker rivalry than Flyers-Devils or Flyers-Isles?

no, but the Devils two main rivals are the Rangers and Flyers. Point is, you can't just base the extra game on the "rivalry". Besides, it is ONE game. Think about Montreal. Should they have the extra game against the Leafs and Bruins or Leafs and Sens and go with the Canada thing. Then, who do the Bruins play extra? Sabres?

Flyers and Pens will likely have at least 1 or 2 games on NBC. Should they play all 5 games on NBC?

New York will open its season against the Bruins in Boston on Jan. 19, according to the Boston Globe.

“It will likely be a 7 p.m. start, although that could change,” the paper reported.

We are a physical team, we still are I mean. Flyers aren't the 70's flyers anymore either, and Pens aren't Hulk Hogan.

I see no problem with an extra B's-Sabres game. Sabres got tougher in the offseason because they didn't want to be pushed around by Boston.

And Habs-Boston is the greatest traditional rivalry in the NHL. Yes. You do the extra game.

Nothing is confirmed. NHLPA has yet to announce results even though voting ended almost 2 hours ago.

The schedule will be announced today, but there's no timeframe for it.
