NHL television schedule: Season will start with NBCSN tripleheader

The NHL will get back in action next month with a televised tripleheader.

NBCSN will show Pittsburgh-Philadelphia (5:30 ET), Chicago-Tampa Bay (8 ET) and St. Louis-Colorado (10:30 ET) on Jan. 13. The Lightning will raise their Stanley Cup banner before the second game.

Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby and Washington’s Alex Ovechkin will be featured seven times, including two head-to-head meetings, in the preliminary television schedule. Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia and the New York Rangers, featuring No. 1 overall pick Alexis Lafreniere, will also be on seven times.

The Lightning will be on four times, though none of their eight meetings with the fellow finalist Dallas Stars are on the initial list. The Stars have one game on national TV.

NBCSN will show games on Wednesday and Sunday nights. NBC will be on Sunday, plus the final day of the season (May 8). That game's matchup will depend on the playoff picture.
