Any idea why the Eastern Conference Playoff Schedule hasn't been released yet since we already know the matchups? I understand why the West isn't because right now no series is definite, but at least we should know the Eastern Conference Schedule right now.

From the looks of it, seems like I was flipping thru my DVR for Saturday that there is going to be a game CST (Central) at noon to 2:30 on ESPN, 2:30 to 5:00 PM on ABC, 6 PM to 8:30 PM on ESPN and 8:30 PM to 11:00 PM on ESPN.


On Sunday it shows that at noon to 2:30 PM CST on TNT a game, 2:30 to 5:00 PM on ABC a game, 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM on TNT a Game and 8:30 to 11:00 PM a game.

Once again all CST (Central time)

Because they have to set-up everything based on the matchups in the NHL. With a lot of matchups unsettled still in the Western Conference, they don't know who can play when because they don't know how it would interfere with the NHL schedule. Eastern Conference match-ups depend on the Western Conference schedules being made.

If that made any sense or helped you.

THIS. I know that the HEAT-76ers series, for instance, is going to be complicated by the Flyers playoff schedule.

Makes sense. Do they do this because some NBA/NHL teams use the same floor or do they do this so that people who are fans can watch one of their teams one day and the other team that next day?
