Default Game start time

From a business stand point, it looks like 7:00 start times are better. Concessions seemed much busier than usual, not as much time to eat/drink elsewhere. Maybe some of the higher end food vendors could make it with a more captive crowd (Gordon Biersch's and Gallagher's closed quickly). I'd be much more likely to eat there with 7 starts and a selection of decent food; other than Mr Empanada everything is crap.

Speaking of game start times, tomorrow night's Bolts-Pens game 7 has been moved back to 8PM eastern according to this article. No mention of why, but probably to accomodate TV....Sidney's triumphant return?

8 pm for the first round seems insanely late, but whatever.

Per the team, it sounds like it won't be Versus exclusive

TBLightning Tampa Bay Lightning
Start time for Wednesday night's game 7 in Pittsburgh will be 8:00pm. TV in Tampa Bay on Sun Sports. Radio on 970AM.


Anyway, I don't mind 7pm start times as then I can get home at a decent hour, though IIRC the last time they tried that people bitched & moaned the whole season.

Some people have trouble getting to the game by 7. I wish the Caps games would start at 7:30 since I live outside the capital beltway (think 15 miles away in heavy traffic after getting home after 5:30.) That extra half hour is probably a bigger deal than it should be for me...

I prefer 7pm but I understand why that isn't great for some, but then any time will be bad for somebody.

I'm somewhat relieved this one was pushed back to 8 pm, I have a night class on Wednesday that starts at 6:30. We're usually out of there by 8 or so but this way I might miss the first five minutes instead of the 1st period.

Happy they pushed the game back. Won't miss any of it if I get stuck in traffic in Gainesville.
