Stanley Cup Conference Semi Pairings Official

The NHL has not announced a complete schedule, but we do know the pairings for the 2nd round of the playoffs.  In the East it will be 6. Carolina v 1. Boston and 4. Pittsburgh v 2. Washington.  In the West it will be 8. Anaheim v 2. Detroit and 4. Chicago v 3. Vancouver.  Game 1 action will be Thursday and Friday of this week.  Look for the Canucks to start on Thursday so that Game 2 can be lined up for Hockey Night in Canada Saturday night.  Therefor the Detroit series to start Friday with Game 2 Sunday, perhaps being the NBC game.  Or for the two East series to be on NBC both days this weekend.  Certainly the Pens/Caps series will get the full maximum coverage of all 7 games being on Versus or NBC.  However exactly they write the schedule it should be fun playoff hockey.  Go Pens!
