As expected the Ducks will begin their 2013 Western Conference Quarterfinal series with the Red Wings on Tuesday, April 30. Not as expected, it will be the second game of NBC Sports Network's opening night double header (Following Minnesota at Chicago, 5:00 pm PT). Below is the full schedule.

The local TV and radio broadcasts have not yet been announced, but I'm sure all of the national broadcasts will be blacked out for those of us in So Cal (UPDATE: Game 1 is on Fox Sports West, and web only radio). And if any of you Ducks fans are living behind enemy lines, all of the games will be shown on Fox Sports Detroit.

Not much else to say here. All of the games are evenly spaced, with a day off in between. The slight fluctuations in start time accommodate for national TV and time difference. Can't wait to get started! Let the countdown begin!

Fowl!
