March 5, 2012 Leave a comment
Despite spending most of its season on WCHA and ECAC match-ups, NBC Sports Network goes pretty heavily into Hockey East as we head towards college hockey’s post-season, with the network picking up four games from the conference tournament leading up to the Championship, which it will broadcast outside the New England area.
NBCSN begins it’s Hockey East tourney coverage on Friday night, when they’ll have exclusive coverage of the UMass-Boston College quarterfinal game at 7:30 p.m. ET. The game should air in New England on NBCSN as well, which the rest of its tournament coverage will not. NESN will pick up the New Hampshire-Boston University game on Saturday at 4:00 p.m. ET.
