BLAME CANADA? ESPN.com's Eric Adelson wrote while the NHL "gets a mulligan for scheduling" the Amp Energy Winter Classic against college football bowl games on January 1, it now has committed a "far worse offense: The first three games of the Stanley Cup finals will be played at the same time as Games 3, 4 and 5 of the NBA's Eastern Conference finals." NHL VP/Media Relations Frank Brown said of the scheduling, "We have rights-holders. CBC has aired 'Hockey Night in Canada' on Saturday night for 50 years." But Adelson wrote does "anyone really think the Knicks and Rangers would be pitted against each other three times in six playoff nights?" Brown said the scheduling overlap is "one of those freakish things that happen" (ESPN.com, 5/20).
