The release of the 2012-13 NHL regular-season schedule conjures some mixed emotions. Yes, it's always cool to start formulating travel plans based on your favorite team's road trips, and to see which teams got the marquee matchups during the season — like the New York Rangers at the Boston Bruins for the next Thanksgiving Showdown.

And yet, you can't help but wonder if there will even be NHL hockey on Black Friday … or December … or … stupid no good potential work stoppage.

From the NHL:

The National Hockey League's 2012-13 season will face off with four games on Oct. 11, followed one night later by the Los Angeles Kings raising the first Stanley Cup championship banner in the franchise's 45-year history.

Opening night will feature nationally televised doubleheaders in both the United States and Canada. In the U.S., NBC Sports Network will air the 2011 Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins visiting the Philadelphia Flyers, followed by the St. Louis Blues at the Colorado Avalanche. In Canada, CBC will televise the Montreal Canadiens playing host to the Ottawa Senators, followed by the Calgary Flames hosting the Vancouver Canucks.
