    Terrible press release. Who are the announcers for the games? Who are the announcers for the pre and post game shows? What time does the pre game show start?
    Also, no mention about the history of this matchup. For the first time since 1979, 2 original 6 teams will be facing each other in the Stanley Cup finals.
    All of this needs to be in the press release!

    @E, Most of that was in the Press Release, Amanda just left that part out. Go check the NBC press site.

  • Joseph

    NBC’s broadcast network should carry the entire Stanley Cup Finals.

    This way, viewers won’t be asking “What Channel Is The Game On?”.

    And having the entire series on the broadcast network could see a healthy spike in overall ratings for the series.
