You may remember a post I made about a week ago where Mike Emrick stated NBC and the NHL knows what hockey markets in the USA would attract viewers. Those cities were Detroit, Philadelphia, NYC, Dallas & Denver.
Well, Dallas and the NYR look like sure goners and Detroit and Philly are fighting to make the 2nd round.
I am sure NBC is hoping for a miracle or two and silently pulling for Detroit and Philly to continue their winning ways.
But let's not get to the point where the NHL will "dictate" which team will win the series. This is not the NBA, so I thought I would clear the air before we start hearing the "fix" is in.
