Kukla's Korner Hockey

But really, the Stanley Cup final should begin Saturday night at 7 p.m., because that’s when Canadians most like to watch NHL hockey on television.
It’s a little show called ‘Hockey Night In Canada’, and it’s been around for more than a few years.
Starting the final then would also show Canadian hockey fans some respect, respect that’s been sorely lacking during these playoffs. The most recent
example was playing the last Ottawa-Buffalo game on a Saturday afternoon during the long, Victoria Day weekend.
It was a warm, sunny spring day, and the NHL forced Canadian fans indoors for their playoff hockey fix just to appease NBC, an American TV station that attracts a handful of fans whenever it shows hockey.
