Rangers Playoff TV Schedule Announced

The NHL today released the television schedule for the first round of the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Though many fans are upset the Rangers will be facing the Ottawa Senators in the first round, it played perfectly into avoiding telecasts on NBC and Doc Emerick.

Games 1 and 2 at Madison Square Garden will be Thursday and Saturday, respectively. Both games are slated to begin at 7 pm. Games 3 and 4 in Ottawa will be Monday and Wednesday, respectively. Both of those games will be 7:30 starts.

If necessary, Game 5 will be Saturday April 21 at Madison Square Garden with a 7 pm start time. Game 6 in Ottawa, as well as Game 7 at Madison Square Garden, have not been given start times yet.

As a Ranger fan who is a fan of the MSG telecasts, facing Ottawa is a blessing to avoid the national telecasts and those commentating crews.
