No more afternoon playoff games

The NHL playoffs this year was some of the best NHL hockey I have seen, but being from western Canada and a NHL hockey fan for as long as I can remember, it really ticks me off when the NHL schedules afternoon playoff games.

Noon or 1 p.m. game starts in western Canada leave us NHL fans frustrated!

Spring afternoons, after a long winter, are spent gardening, cleaning the yard, fishing or just being outdoors.

What would be fair is an 8 p.m. EST start for, at the least, all the Stanley Cup final games.

A western Canadian team in the finals would also help!
