I've also heard Chi. RT@JSportsnet LA Kings will host the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday, January 19th. Banner and ring night!#DropThePuck
We know its the 19th, and probably against Chi, so I went ahead on my menu on my cable box. This probably means nothing, but between 5pm and 7:30pm, it says to be determined. Everything before and after has programming listed. It's the only thing that is TBD. So this probably means nothing, but that could be the tentative time as of now? I wouldn't mind if it was also national on NBC. Only conflict that I have is that my man Vitor is fighting around that time on FX. Looks like the fight is getting recorded. Just so happy to have my ding-a-ling Kings back!!
puckthemedia guy just tweeted it is at 4pm... No NBC or NBCSports.
It appears the Kings' banner raising will not be televised by NBC or NBCSN. 7 p.m. ET start means NHL Net could be possibility. FSW locally.
Clippers have the building at 7:30 pm, so no way can a hockey game start at 4pm.
The latest they could drop the puck would be about 1pm. Most likely will be a noon start but the puck will drop 30 minutes later after the ceremony.
Just my luck my cousin is getting married and I wont get to go or even watch the damn game live.
Frozen Royalty just said it was noon...
For those still asking...reliable sources indicate that #lakings open at home, 1/19, noon, vs. CHI. But not official until CBA is ratified.
CBA ratified according to NHL.com
Get this schedule up dudes !
