via the Toronto Star,
Nothing has been officially announced, but the television networks have been told that the Stanley Cup final will begin one week from today in either Carolina or Buffalo. Despite the fact that the Western Conference final is over and the Eastern final may end as early as tomorrow, it's believed that the NHL is pandering to the wishes of NBC, who don't pick up the final until Game 3.Under the format, it's believed the final will open with Games 1 and 2 next Monday and Wednesday in either Carolina or Buffalo. The series then shifts to Edmonton for Games 3 and 4, June 10 and 12.
FYI, CBC mentioned either Saturday or Monday as the start date for the Finals.
