Yeah. I think if they played the Saturday game, they'd have to play back-to-back on Sunday.
The Clippers and Lakers also play at Staples, and Coldplay has two shows in Vancouver, so the schedule makers' hands were tied in many ways. The Sunday game coming off an afternoon basketball game will be an interesting turn around. Expect atrocious ice.
As for Daniel, even if he comes back game 1 or 2, the extra days between games 3 and 4 will give him more practise and conditioning time before the series potentially goes deep.
