Although the start time for Game 6 on Sunday in Carolina has not been announced yet, according to the broadcast schedule just released, it won't be televised on NBC regardless of the outcome of tonight's game between the Rangers and Capitals.
In promoting a possible Game 6 between the Rangers and Capitals at 2 p.m. Sunday, NBC stated in an e-mail press release today that if there is no Game 6 in that series Sunday, "the Jeep World of Adventure will air from 3-4 p.m. ET and the National Heads-Up Poker Championship from 4-6 p.m. ET."
What this means as far as when the Devils and Hurricanes will play, I'm not sure. I have a feeling that it might mean the Devils and Hurricanes will still play an afternoon game on Sunday even though it won't be on NBC if the Rangers win tonight. They can't play before 5 p.m. on Sunday, however, if there is a Capitals-Rangers Game 6 because NBC has exclusive window beginning at 2 p.m.
Devils coach Brent Sutter said on a conference call this morning that he has not been told anything about when the game might start.
