Confirmed: TSN will broadcast Coyotes vs. Predators

The National Hockey League’s conference semifinals begin tomorrow night in Glendale, Arizona as the Coyotes take on the Predators. It is now confirmed that TSN will broadcast this series in Canada. Game 1 is at 9:00pm ET tomorrow night, with a pre-game show immediately before it. Gord Miller and Darren Pang will call this series for TSN.

It is not yet known if CBC or TSN will broadcast the Blues vs. Kings series. It will depend on the results of tonight’s games. That series will begin either Saturday afternoon (on NBC) or Saturday evening. Whether NBC wants to show game 1 also depends on tonight’s results. A Senators vs. Panthers series would be unappealing to NBC, so that would certainly result in Blues vs. Kings starting on Saturday afternoon.

The NHL has also confirmed a partial schedule for the two Western Conference series. Here it is.

(3) Phoenix Coyotes vs. (4) Nashville Predators – TSN
Game 1 – Friday April 27 at 9:00pm ET
Game 2 – Sunday April 29
Game 3 – Wednesday May 2
Game 4 – Friday May 4

(2) St. Louis Blues vs. (8) Los Angeles Kings
Game 1 – Saturday April 28
Game 2 – Monday April 30
Game 3 – Thursday May 3
Game 4 – Sunday May 6

The NHL will release the schedules for the remainder of these series, as well as the Eastern Conference Semifinals, later tonight. I will post them when they are available.

Gord Miller and Ray Ferraro will work TSN’s other to-be-confirmed series. Mike Johnson is going to Europe to call the World Hockey Championships.

CBC has first and second pick of series in the Conference Semifinals.
