Playoff Schedule - Part Deux (That's French for Two)

What scheduling option works best for the Playoffs?

Spread it out and schedule games in existing ZHL timeslots only, making each series span over multiple days. Playoffs would last 2 to 4 weeks total, depending on the length of each series.

Two consecutive Sundays, likely cramming 6 to 10 hours of Zealot Hockey into each between ZHL and Probe League. Round 1 on the first Sunday, Semi-Finals & Finals on the second.

UPDATE: Two major changes have been made to the playoff schedule. First, the asterisk on Games 4 and 5 in the first two rounds of the Tassadar Cup (ZHL playoffs) has been eliminated, so schedules for each series are not dependent upon how many games the other series takes. Second, the Artanis Cup (Probe League playoffs) was incorrectly scheduled as if it were a Best of Five bracket, but it is in fact Best of Three. As such, all eight teams in the probe league will make the playoffs, allowing us to fill those time slots out a bit more, and allowing all teams to have a shot at the Cup.

Round 1
Sunday, Oct 12 7:00 - 8:00 EDT - #3 vs #6 Games 1 and 2
Sunday, Oct 12 8:00 - 9:00 EDT - #4 vs #5 Games 1 and 2
Tuesday, Oct 14 9:00 EDT - #3 vs #6 Game 3
Wednesday, Oct 15 9:00 EDT - #4 vs #5 Game 3
Thursday, Oct 16 9:00 EDT - #3 vs #6 Games 4 and 5 if necessary
Friday, Oct 17 9:00 EDT - #4 vs #5 Games 4 and 5 if necessary

Semi-Finals
Sunday, Oct 19 7:00 - 8:00 EDT - #1 vs TBD (lowest remaining seed) Games 1 and 2

Tuesday, Oct 21 9:00 EDT - #1 vs TBD Game 3
Wednesday, Oct 22 9:00 EDT - #2 vs TBD Game 3
