NHL Network to Debut Nightly ‘NHL Tonight’ After Christmas?

The “randomly looking at NHL Network listings” department has yet again yielded an intriguing tidbit of information. Okay, so here is the schedule for two upcoming days on the NHL Network, in the US (though the thing I’m getting to is on the Canadian schedule, too.

Wednesday, December 22
5:00 NHL Live
7:00 NHL On the Fly
1:00 a.m.
On the Fly: Final

Monday, December 26
3:00
NHL Live
3:30 World Junior Championships: Canada vs. Finland
6:30 NHL Live
7:00 NHL On the Fly
8:00 World Junior Championships: USA vs. Denmark
11:00 NHL Tonight

This goes on similarly for the rest of the available listings. In Canada, it goes like this:

Wednesday, December 22
5:00 NHL Live
7:00 NHL On the Fly
1:00 a.m.
On the Fly: Final

Tuesday, December 27
5:00
NHL Live
7:00
NHL On the Fly
10:00 NHL Tonight
12:00 NHL Tonight: Final

So what do we have here? Is On the Fly going to take on a more NFL Red Zone-y feel, while Tonight would be more of what On the Fly‘s wrap-up shows used to be? Are they going to be two completely different shows in different studios? Or simply just the same production with different names? Is this just a placeholder mistakenly entered in by somebody on the NHL Net website. My guess is that it’s the former, since the show has been entered into both the United States and Canadian websites. There’s no announcement of any sort from the NHL yet, but I’d imagine with the Christmas holiday coming very soon, it won’t be long before we get an explanation. More exciting times for hockey fans.
