Like the NBA schedule for the week, this week’s lineup on national TV for the NHL is also busy. With 17 games airing across NBC Sports Network, ESPN+, and the NHL Network on cable TV as well as on NBC on broadcast TV, the NHL is kicking into high gear on your TV dial. There’s less NFL football to watch, college football is over, and fans from St. Cloud, MN to Arlington, TX will be tuning in to the hard-hitting action.
Here’s the full schedule for the week, all listed times Eastern.

Our pick of the week is Thursday’s ESPN+ matchup between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Tampa Bay Lightning. A potential conference finals matchup in the East, both teams are Stanley Cup favorites and play an exciting, offense-driven style that translates well to the TV screen. Crisp passes, speedy rushes, and vicious snipes aplenty can be expected from this matchup.
