The bolded ones are the games I think will be aired.
Sunday, Jan. 17
Chicago at Detroit, 12:30 p.m. ET

Sunday, Jan. 24
Pittsburgh at Philadelphia or Boston at Carolina, 12:30 p.m. ET

Sunday, Jan. 31
Detroit at Pittsburgh or Tampa Bay at Washington, 12:30 p.m. ET

Sunday, Feb. 7
Pittsburgh at Washington or Boston at Montreal, 12 p.m. ET

Sunday, March 7
Boston at Pittsburgh (1), Detroit at Chicago (2)or Carolina at Atlanta, 12:30 p.m. ET

Sunday, March 14
Philadelphia at NY Rangers, Pittsburgh at Tampa Bay, Washington at Chicago
or Colorado at Dallas, 12:30 p.m. ET

Sunday, March 21
NY Rangers at Boston or Buffalo at Carolina, 12:30 p.m. ET

Sunday, April 4
Detroit at Philadelphia, 12:30 p.m. ET

Sunday, April 11
Boston at Washington, NY Rangers at Philadelphia (1)or Detroit at Chicago (2), 12 p.m. ET

No Sharks, no Kings, no Yotes, no Avs, no Preds and no Devils. Yet there is the possibility of showing Atlanta, Carolina and Tampa :doh1:

NBC is falling into the same trap that E$PN did, continually showing a select few teams for a national broadcast. And they can't figure out why ratings are low :rolleyes:
People are sick of seeing the same teams all the time :rant: :argh:

They dropped the "puck" (ball) last year by showing a meaningless NYR vs Philly game instead of airing the Devils vs Sharks :wacko: (who were the top teams in the east and west at the time)

Who the hell is going to watch two poor teams like Car vs Tb ? Who is going to watch the potential blowout games of Caps vs TB or Pit vs TB ?

How about watching a competative game like San Jose vs Colorado ? or Phoenix vs LA Kings ?

Ratings, ratings <_< shove it up your a$$. I have no interest in watching two poor teams like NYR at Philly or the same old, same old Pens vs Caps -_- Why not show Nashville vs San Jose or Phoenix vs Chicago ? :noclue:

we're only scheduled into their window twice.

the 31st vs. the Kings
and the last game of the season vs. Sabres

first game would have to be a 9:30AM start in LA and the second will be the ultimate in meaningless games.

I'd guess that that has to do with NHL scheduling, which I'm sure is in contact with NBC. It's not a coincidence that Pittsburgh just happens to be scheduled every Sunday.

Unless we don't play defense and score 10 goals, we won't be on nbc.

The rationale behind the games they choose are simple: the Bigger the TV market the bigger the potential ratings.

The bigger the ratings, the more NBC can charge to advertisers

New Jersey is NOT a media market, nor is San Jose or Anaheim, so from a business perspective these teams aren't options.

If I was a fan of a team NOT in the Atlantic division I would be extremely pissed. Why would a team like the Flyers or Rangers who are fighting to stay alive and have been playing like garbage be broadcasts so often? It makes zero sense, I understand that they have a huge market but I doubt anyone wants to see a sh!tty team play just because they have the name NEW YORK or PHILADELPHIA on them.....it's BS is what it is. :soap:

NBC does not care about the NHL or putting the best game on tv for the viewer or to promote the NHL. They blindly the teams in the highest markets and air them. They don't care how the teams are actually doing or what type of game you will get. I work for NBC. That's how they are and that's how it will be.

Does NBC still have a sort of flex option? I remember a couple of years ago (maybe it was even last year?) that there was the possibility of one Devils game being switched to 12:30 from 7 by NBC, or something like that.

Tampa isn't a bad squad to watch live I think showcasing Stamkos on network television is a plus for the NHL, esp. if it is against the Crosbquins.

Langs is the captain, deal with it.

If Doc Emrick, who called yesterday's Bruins-Rangers on NBC, were a national network's lead baseball or football play-by-player, he would be widely known as among the finest in the history of television.

most of our other Sundays are at 7PM after a Saturday at 7PM, I think those are the only two weeks we can be booked.

its sad NBC cant recognize GOOD HOCKEY.

Pittsburgh isn't a large TV market and Washington isn't known for great ratings either!

i find it hilarious that NBC puts these "lame duck" options in there. do they think they're fooling anyone?

Pittsburgh is #23 TV market, Washington D.C is #9. The Pens do great TV ratings locally and the Caps are the hottest ticket in D.C.

Until Pitt is dethroned expect nothing but Sid the kid games on NBC.

Just out of curiosity, where did you get those numbers from and where do we rank?
