2011 NHL Playoffs: Game 6 Between Lightning And Penguins Set For 7:00 PM Monday Night

Late Saturday afternoon, the NHL announced that Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal between the Tampa Bay Lightning and Pittsburgh Penguins will begin at 7:00pm Eastern time. The game, which became necessary after the Lightning’s 8-2 win in Saturday’s Game 5, will be played in the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa.

While official word regarding TV doesn’t appear to have been handed down, all signs point to the game being broadcast nationally on Versus. The only other series that could have played in the early time slot on Monday night was the one between the Washington Capitals and New York Rangers. But when the Capitals finished off that series with a 3-1 win on Saturday, the Lightning and Penguins were the only option remaining.

If the Lightning win on Monday night and force a Game 7, that deciding game will be played back in Pittsburgh at the Consol Energy Center on Wednesday night.
