Arena availability for potential round two Stanley Cup Playoff participants

With confirmation that the NHL Stanley Cup Quarterfinals will extend until at least Thursday night with the Rangers and Senators set for a game seven showdown, it is a good time to look at building availability for the teams remaining in the hunt for moving to round two.

The two series in the Western conference are set with St. Louis having home ice advantage over Los Angeles and Phoenix hosting Nashville.

In the Eastern Conference, Washington and Boston will face their game seven final on Wednesday. Florida and New Jersey will either wrap up Tuesday or Thursday night.

The earliest that the next round could start would be Friday night, most likely in the Western Conference, so we will use that as our starting point.

One thing to keep in mind is that the NBA Playoff schedule will be set shortly, and affect building usage in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles (two teams). There also remains the possibility that previously set events can be rescheduled.
