My thoughts on this is that it is ridiculous!!! I understand that Giant Center is booked this upcoming week but why can't they play games Tuesday/Thursday in Hershey????

If this series goes 7 there will be 5 games in 7 days!! That is absurd.

Even if it only goes 6 you still have a 4 in 5. During the season I understand this...hell I understand it in the playoffs if there is too much travel needed.

BUT this is Philly/Hershey. A whopping 100 miles separate the two. It takes all of 2 hours to get from one to the other!

Oh well....nothing I can do about it.

It should be interesting though!

Any of you have any thoughts on this???

I don't believe the playoffs can could have started on Tuesday, Wednesday was the earliest. And Disney on Ice is at the GC starting on Wednesday (including Thursday). Having said that, I was surprised that the first home game was not until Wednesday. Why not Monday or Tuesday?

That was what I meant. I thought that they could have started the Bears home portion on Monday or Tuesday. Say Game 3 Tuesday, Game 4 Thursday, Games 5,6,7 remain the same.

But I would imagine crowds will be bigger on Wed/Fri then Tues/Thurs.
