Blackhawks And Canucks Playoff Series Begins Wednesday In Vancouver

The NHL Network is to announce playoff matchups starting at 9 p.m. CDT Sunday, but the CBC, the NHL’s Canadian broadcast partner, has jumped the gun, according to the mothership at SBNation.com:

It’s no secret that NHL playoff schedules are run by the television networks, and in the case of CBC’s Hockey Night In Canada, they perhaps have the most pull in that department. CBC has announced prior to the NHL’s official announcement of playoff schedules that they’ll broadcast four different first round series.

Here’s the relevant information directly from the CBC’s website:

The Vancouver Canucks will try to carry over their Presidents’ Trophy regular-season campaign success into the playoffs against the Chicago Blackhawks, with the games airing live on CBC Television and streaming at CBCSports.ca starting Wednesday at 7 p.m. PT (10 p.m. ET).

That, of course, will be at 9 p.m. CDT, and the game should be airing on CSN Chicago. We’ll post the full Blackhawks/Canucks series schedule in this StoryStream when it’s released by the NHL Network.
