College football:The TV, radio and web schedules for 2022

The National Hockey League opens its 105th regular season on October 11, and wraps up in mid-April, followed by two months of thrilling Stanley Cup playoffs.

The New York Rangers reached the Eastern Conference finals in spring 2022, the New York Islanders took a step down from their 2021 run but remain formidable, and, the New Jersey Devils have exciting young talent.

If you live in New York, have cable TV and perhaps a subscription web package, you will have literally hundreds of games to watch. MSG Networks will air the Rangers, with the newly named MSG Sportsnet (formerly MSG Plus) as the primary carrier for the Islanders and Devils.

ESPN and TNT will share the national TV package for the second season in a row. ESPN will air a number of weekend doubleheaders on ABC Sports after the all-star break. Subscription ESPN Plus will have exclusive games as partners with Hulu, as well as airing all NHL games (replacing the former NHL Center Ice package).

Sirius XM Radio will provide extensive coverage as well, airing home-team broadcasts and a number of national telecasts.

This season the Stanley Cup finals will be aired for the first time by Turner Sports, on TNT. ESPN and TNT will split playoff action, each getting a conference final in exclusivity.

New York Rangers

The Broadway Blueshirts have their games televised locally by MSG Networks when there is no national TV appearance. Most games will air on MSG Network, with others on MSG Plus (usually when there is a conflict with New York Knicks’ NBA telecasts). Hall of Fame announcer Sam Rosen and Joe Micheletti remain one of the top broadcast teams in the NHL. Studio hosts John Giannone and Steve Valiquette are often joined by Henrik Lundqvist.

Radio broadcasts will air on ESPN Radio New York (98.7-FM) with some conflicts airing on the AM channel (1050-AM). Kenny Albert remains the top radio play-by-play voice but with all his broadcast commitments some games will be handled by regular studio host Don LaGreca. Dave Maloney is the color analyst on most games, with Pete Stemkowski filling in on occasion. The radio broadcasts are streamed off the ESPN New York radio site and available through NHL.com, Sirius XM and the TuneIn app (subscription).

NHL Power Play on ESPN+

More than 1,050 out-of-market live games will be available on the subscription platform, newly named “NHL Power Play on ESPN+” – these were the games that were presented on cable TV through the old NHL Center Ice subscriptions.

A new twist is each game will have the home and road telecasts, plus the Saturday Hockey Night in Canada telecast feed. All telecasts will also be available for replays.

NHL Network

The cable channel will often present home-team telecasts when there is no national TV window (from ESPN, ESPN+ and TNT). Expect to get at least one Hockey Night in Canada telecast on most Saturday nights, and sometimes there will be an afternoon HNIC game plus the usual 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. games.

Like the other major sports channels, NHL Network will present “NHL Tonight,’’ with highlights and live look-ins to evening games in progress. Often, the network will pick up the third period of late NHL games at 11 p.m or midnight before returning to studio shows. When hockey action is concluded, the network will present the half-hour highlights show “On the Fly” and re-run them through the subsequent morning. The network will then present 1- and 2-hour replays of games the following afternoon.

Hosted by Jackie Redmond, E.J. Hradek and a rotation of analysts, “NHL Now” will regularly air at 4 p.m., previewing the night’s action. “NHL Tonight: Pre-Game Skate” will air at 6 p.m.

On Saturday nights, NHL Network will air “Hockey Central” at 6:30 p.m., the pregame show for “Hockey Night in Canada” though the U.S. audience may not always get the subsequent HNIC telecast.


Sat. 28 - Bruins at Panthers, 6 p.m.; Sun. 29 - Capitals at Maple Leafs, 5 p.m.; Mon. 30 - Blues at Jets, 8 p.m.; Tues. 31 - Kings at Hurricanes, 7 p.m.

(more games to be announced)

Sirius XM Radio

Satellite radio Sirius XM provides live coverage of every NHL game, providing home broadcasts on channels 219-223. The service will also put games on the NHL channel 91 and on some Canadian-based channels, like 167.
