TSN To Air Lottery Results

TSN will air a special half-hour program on Friday at 4PM EST with the lottery results. No word yet if ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNews will pick up any press conference that is held announcing the results, but I imagine ESPNews at the very least will cut in with something.

Here's a little reminder, courtesy of TSN, of the number of balls for each team.

Four teams (Buffalo, Columbus, the New York Rangers and Pittsburgh) have three balls in the lottery. Ten teams (Anaheim, Atlanta, Calgary, Carolina, Chicago, Edmonton, Los Angeles, Minnesota, Nashville, Phoenix) have two balls in the drum. The remaining 16 teams (Boston, Colorado, Dallas, Detroit, Florida, Montreal, New Jersy, NY Islanders, Ottawa, Philadelphia, St. Louis, San Jose, Tampa Bay, Toronto, Vancouver, Washington) have one.
