from Bolts Report,
...the Carolina Hurricanes have turned down the Lightning’s request to move the start time, so Saturday’s game will start at 7:30 p.m. as scheduled. Because Carolina plays at home on Friday, and Saturday’s start time falls within the same 24-hour period, the Hurricanes have to agree to the time change. They haven’t, so it’s status quo.
As far as my feelings on that, well, at some point Carolina might be asking the Lightning for a similar favor and all I can say is, what comes around goes around.
more on the Lightning and the Tampa Bay Rays playing at the same time on Saturday…

The Hurricanes said no, and it’s hard to blame them. With a home game Friday night — the opener against the Florida Panthers — the Canes would be at a huge competitive disadvantage playing earlier.
But there’s a subtext here. In the summer of 2006, the Lightning added an ice-level club to their arena and closed off the tunnel that connected the visiting locker room to the visiting bench.
