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.
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.
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.
