Eastern Conference NHL First Round Building Availability

Previously we took a look at Western Conference building availability during the NHL first round playoff time frame. We now give the Eastern Conference venues the same treatment.

There are several more teams in the East that share facilities with NBA franchises which makes scheduling a bit trickier. Fortunately, none have two NBA tenants like the L.a. Kings have to deal with at the Staples Center.

The only match that is already set is Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. You could easily project that the Pens will host the first two games on Wednesday and Friday before they move into the more used Wells Fargo Arena for games three and four. It's hard to imagine that there won't be a weekend game on the NBC Network.

The Rangers and Bruins are the only teams with home ice secured and both seem to have plenty of dates for the home slate at the proper time.

Make the jump for all of the building schedules from the Eastern Conference playoff teams, bearing in mind that the can be rescheduled events.
