NBC Sports Network Adds Seven More West Coast Games Down the Stretch

If you enjoyed last night’s Flyers-Sharks game and doubleheader on NBC Sports Network, you’re in for a treat, as the network is adding seven games down the stretch, both for doubleheaders and new hockey nights we haven’t seen before.

All the games take place at 10:00 p.m. ET or later, five of which are airing after already planned games, giving NBCSN a total of 12 doubleheaders to finish the season, the most in NBCSN/VERSUS/OLN history. Four of the games are being simulcast from CSN California, while the other three are picked up from TSN. The Sharks (four games) add the most appearances out of this boost, while the Canucks (three games), Ducks (three games) and Kings (two games) also get a boost.

The following is the NBCSN schedule for the nights these games are being added. Bonus games are italicized.

One Response to NBC Sports Network Adds Seven More West Coast Games Down the Stretch

  1. Rhett says:

    Wonderful! NBC clearly sees the value of promoting these top West Coast teams, even if the ratings aren’t going to be the greatest. It’s odd, though, why they wouldn’t just figure out a way to produce these games themselves. Perhaps this could be a sign they may be looking at a third fulltime crew for next season.
