Preds to be on national TV 6 times this season

The National Hockey League released their national tv schedule for the upcoming season Thursday. The Nashville Predators are scheduled to have six regular season games on national tv. Their games will be on the NBC Sports Net and NHL Network. 

See which games are on national tv this season after the jump.

NBC Sports Network

  • Monday, January 21: vs Los Angeles Kings
  • Tuesday, March 19: vs Phoenix Coyotes
  • Tuesday, April 2: @ St. Louis Blues

NHL Network

  • Friday, October 12: @ Detroit Red Wings
  • Friday, January 4: @ Detroit Red Wings
  • Thursday, April 4: @ Chicago Blackhawks

The NHL Network is heavily favoring the Nashville Predators against Detroit Red Wings match-ups because of the first round match-up last season. Both games should be very good for ratings.

It is nice to see the Predators getting six national tv games this season. This way, it exposes a very good Nashville team with NHL stars like Shea Weber and Pekka Rinne on the team.
