Beaming Live Coast to Coast

Okay, Caps fans, no whining allowed.

Why? Because the NHL has released the first round broadcast schedule - and while we love moaning and complaining that Crosby gets more attention, it seems that for the moment Ovechkin's playoff debut has become a bigger draw.

The Caps-Flyers series has apparently been tabbed as the must-see Eastern Conference matchup (Detroit-Nashville will get the love for the Western Conference), and our scrappy Caps will be featured in the national broadcasts for every game but Game 7:

Fri., April 11 7:00 PM Philadelphia at Washington VERSUS, TSN

Sun., April 13 2:00 PM Philadelphia at Washington NBC, TSN

Tues., April 15 7:00 PM Washington at Philadelphia VERSUS, TSN

Thurs., April 17 7:00 PM Washington at Philadelphia VERSUS, TSN

Sat., April 19 1:00 PM Philadelphia at Washington* NBC, TSN

Mon., April 21 TBD Washington at Philadelphia* VERSUS, TSN

Tues., April 22 TBD Philadelphia at Washington* TSN

*if necessary

The Caps and Flyers will be the weekend matchup on NBC, the only Eastern Conference team selected for those Saturday time slots. Devils-Rangers will appear on Versus three times, Pens-Sens twice, and Habs-Bruins just once.

No matter...a Game 7 will not be necessary, as the Caps will be pondering their second round opponent.
