NHL Network puts big US and Canadian markets on schedule

We take more than our few slap shots at the NHL Network here at Awful Announcing, but the one thing the channel is truly good for is a slate of live games that supplements what NBC and NBCSN bring to the table the rest of the week. They also, for the most part, usually provide viewers with a shot at seeing an exceptional, Canadian-produced national broadcast on Saturday nights.

The network will provide more of the same, unless a stunning budget infusion provides them with the ability to cover games on their own, in 2014-15 as the NHL Network games leaked onto the league’s official schedule. NHL Net will televise more than 75 games, with much of the action on Saturdays and Thursdays. Many of them in the Saturday, 7 p.m. ET “Hockey Night in Canada” slot.

Chicago, Boston, Montreal, and hilariously, Toronto lead the league in appearances with 11, followed by Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and the Rangers with 10. 29 of the league’s 30 teams appear on the slate, with only Edmonton being skipped out on. A March 14th triple header and the first-ever Rogers’ produced Hockey Night in Canada broadcast highlight the schedule, which is available in full below.
