Stanley Cup Finals 2013: TV Schedule and Start Times


The Stanley Cup Finals are now set and we’ve been gifted with a matchup of two Original Six teams in the Boston Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks. The showdown will be broke down endlessly until the puck drops on Game 1 next Wednesday but that’s half the fun of looking forward to what we’re about to see.

It will no doubt be a Stanley Cup Finals decided by netminding as Boston’s Tuukka Rask has proven to be the best goalie in the postseason so far and his series against the Pittsburgh Penguins should have Blackhawks fans a little nervous about what lies ahead. But while Rask is the best netminder in the postseason and an early favorite for the Conn Smythe trophy, the Blackhawks just got done with a series where they broke Jonathan Quick over their knee and made him look anything but the epic netminder he’s been known to be.

We have a little under a week until the puck drops on the Stanley Cup Finals and it’s going to feature two teams familiar with success. The Bruins are just two years removed from winning the Cup and the Blackhawks are three years removed from beating the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2010 Stanley Cup. It will no doubt be a throwback series and one you won’t want to miss.

Luckily for you, we’ve got all the info you need to know in order to catch all the action in this year’s Stanley Cup Finals.

All times listed are Eastern Time and subject to change.

    I really don’t get how the entire series isn’t on network TV. This is the Superbowl/World Series of hockey.

      They are the same networks that don’t bring any other news either. Hockey is, for the most part, a white, high integrity sport, with players that come from 2 parent families, and are healthy role models. Hockey players really don’t have illegitamate children, and are monogomous, hard working, and off the radar. I suppose now I’ll get an IRS audit. : )

        Hmmm…not sure sure about all that. However, since you invoked race, NBC has gone from Golf’s US Open to Dr. Phil. And their golf God, Tiger Woods, is on the course.

        I can’t even believe they would even think about preempting their golfing hero, the one they front for and back even when he’s +8. They are so in the tank for Woods it’s embarrassing.

          That response was a bit over the top. I’ve lived in western Minnesota since 1980 and have been involved with the development of hockey players. I truly believe that if there were more black and hispanic players on the ice the game would benefit. These kids are hauled back and forth in the tri-state area and Canada from the time they can hold themselves up with the stick. By the time they get to high school they have played together so long that their play becomes symphonic. The entire cost is born by the families and the fundraising activities of local boosters. Until they get to high school they are on their own. My rant was uncalled for, but all the time these kids spend with the leadership involved with hockey, they have inherited some high quality values and standards. It’s no accident that family time plays a huge part.

            I bring up T. Woods you bring up race. What is the total population of African-Americans in Minnesota/Canada as per other states such as CA, NY, IL, MO………fill in the blank. Some kids merely don’t want the involvement in certain sports or the parents. Demographics plays a huge part as does parenting/single family homes/no father.

            I led in scouting for 14 years, coached soccer 14 years (3 seasons per) and had one son in swimming which is really labor/time intensive for the swimmer and parent. And expensive. Swimming actually produces the highest academic scores statistically ( I can prove this) than any other sport. There aren’t many African-American’s swimming competitively either. One Chicago Boys Club did and the kids were really good.

            I played hockey as a youngster and it’s great, absolutely, but like soccer American’s haven’t caught on like football, baseball or basketball. Cost for swimming and soccer is many times prohibitive for families.

            Right on Don! My kids did swimming and soccer and my grand daughter is a local hockey phenom. No matter what sport it is; you have to get it in your blood and pay your dues. Thank you for your service to your community Don. There is not a check big enough to cover the influence you have had on so many young people. Stay young!
