NHL Playoffs 2011: Start Times For Games 6, 7 Of Red Wings-Sharks Series Announced

When the schedule for the series between the Red Wings and Sharks was announced, a start time for Game 6 and Game 7, if necessary, were to be determined at a later date. After Detroit fell into a 3-0 hole against San Jose, it seemed as though there would be no need to announce a start time for Game 6, let alone Game 7. The Red Wings have won two straight games, however, so there will be a Game 6 on Tuesday, and a Red Wings victory will force a Game 7 on Thursday.

The NHL set the schedule (see below) on Sunday night for Tuesday's game in Detroit and Thursday's potential game in San Jose.

Game 6: Sharks at Red Wings - Tuesday, May 10, 8 p.m. (FS Detroit, Versus, TSN)

*Game 7: Red Wings at Sharks - Thursday, May 12, 9 p.m. (FS Detroit, Versus, TSN)

*If necessary | Versus blacked out in Michigan for games also on FS Detroit

If the Red Wings are able to complete the comeback and advance to the Western Conference Finals, that series would likely begin on Saturday. We probably shouldn't get too far ahead of ourselves, though.
