When do the playoffs start =( ?

My Dad works at IBM. IBM has a bunch of season tickets for the Rangers and they sell individual games. We bought tickets to a few games this year from them. Well they were going to sell playoff tickets, so me and my Dad went down last Thursday to the IBM club where you can sign up to enter the lottery for tickets.

You were not guarenteed tickets, but you could fill out which rounds you would like. We filled out the second round ( semis ) as our first choice, then the third round ( ECF's ) as our second, and the first round ( quarterfinals ) as our last preference. We put the quarterfinals last because me and my two brothers are in our high school's play, and the quarterfinals would be taking place during the production week of the play, and I cant miss it.

I come home from school today and my Dad says he has good news and bad news. We got the tickets, but they are for Game 2 of the quarterfinals. This game will probably be on the Saturday night performance of the play, so I cannot go.

Now my Dad is stuck with 4 tickets ( section 333 ) and is trying to work his way out of it or hes going to go down to the Garden and try to scalp them, which probably wont work.

So the question is, when does the first round of the playoffs start?

I told my Dad that some of the people here might be interested but he didnt really like the idea....I dont know why. If the playoffs start on the 21st, would the second game be on the 23rd?

The only possible way I could see him selling the tickets to someone here is if you met him someplace down in the city and he sold them to you there.

Ill tell him about the option of selling them here but not until later. He is still trying to work his way out of the problem and get tickets to another game, and hes kinda pissy so Ill hold off for a bit.

Hey, we all love family guy, but this is for the Rangers playoff push. You can always go back to good ol' Stewie.

And as for meeting a 15 year old in the city, lol, i meant, i could meet your father.

The Avatars can be found in the "Playoffs avatar" thread.

we're talking about the new Playoff Avatars that MisterUnspoken has been making. They are in the "playoff avatar" thread. Go get your hands on one.

Ok well my Dad worked with the lady and now exchanged the Round 1 Game 2 tickets for four Round 2 Game 3 Tickets. This means I got for tix for game 5 or 6 of the semis if they make it. How are the playoff brackets set up? Is it like:

1 vs. 8
4 vs. 5

2 vs. 7
3 vs. 6

?

I dont know whether its game 5 or 6, depending on how the brackets are set up. I probably wont be able to see this game because the semis might not go 6 games if they make it, but its better then not seeing any game at all.

Well we are getting way ahead of ourselves by putting the Rangers in the second round already...

But yeah, its 1v8, 2v7, 3v6, 4v5

So the winner of the 1v8 series plays the winner of the 2v7 series? That means my tickets are for game 5 so ill probably be able to see it hopefully pending the Rangers finish 3rd in the conference.

Im confused lol. I remember this but forgot due to the lack of a season last year.

The question I am trying to ask:

If the Rangers finish 3rd in the conference, will they be playing the 1 or 2 seeded teams in the semis if they make it?
