  1. I wonder which series will be TSN productions and which will be US simulcasts. Safe bet Flyers/Penguins will use TSN commentators.

  2. TSN will most likely use the NBC feed for games 3 and 6 of PIT-PHI, otherwise the rest of the games will probably be TSN productions with their own commentators. All of PHX-CHI looks like it will be on the main TSN channel so I’d think most or all of this series will be TSN productions as well. Then they’ll probably pick up the American broadcasts for STL-SJ and FLA-NJ I would guess, perhaps a couple games will be TSN productions though.

  3. My guess is Gord Miller & Ray Ferraro will do most of PIT-PHI, as well as NJ-FLA games 2 and 3.

    Chris Cuthbert & Mike Johnson will probably do CHI-PHX and maybe some of SJ-STL.

    Just a guess though, based on what TSN has done in the past.

  4. Gord Miller tweeted on Sunday –

    Looking forward to the first round with @rayferrarotsn. We’ll be doing all of Pit/Phi, plus some of Fla/NJ, Phx/Chi and StL/SJ. #airmiles
