So the extra time off comes at the beginning of the series as the Penguin Scum get a full week off between games which should give the Caps a slight advantage. However, the manic end to the series could drain both teams heading into the Eastern Conference Finals. And just in case your wondering, NBC does not have a game the weekend of May 9-10, hence the 7 pm start on May 9th for Game 5.
UPDATE: We were unaware at the time that Versus had exercised exclusive rights to Games 2 and 3.
