NBCSN Has Hockey East Final Four as Part of Big Week

Every night this week, save for Thursday, will be filled with some form of hockey on the NBC Sports Network, hallelujah. The playoffs are near!

Of course, you’ve got the typical Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday NHL games on the network, in addition to a bonus game on Saturday. Making things even more terrific: exclusive coverage outside New England of the Hockey East final four and Championship Game this Friday and Saturday.

Friday night the network will air a doubleheader, starting at 5 p.m. ET with defending champion and No. 1 seed Boston College will face underdog seventh-seeded Providence, who seek out their third Lamoriello Cup (which, of course, is named after the former Friars coach and athletic director, who went on to do some further work of consequence in hockey). The Golden Eagles have won Hockey East a record 10 times before.

After an in-between NHL Live (one of the great things about NBC’s college hockey coverage is that they’ll intersperse NHL and NCAA highlights), 7-time champion and third-seeded Boston University hosting No. 4 Maine, who have won the tournament five times, at 8 p.m. ET. The winners of the two games will meet in the final, on Saturday night at 8 p.m. ET on NBCSN. Talent for the tournament is currently unavailable.
