This week TSN and Sportsnet are releasing regional NHL TV schedules for the upcoming season. TSN also released its national slate yesterday. I will post links to all of the schedules, as well as the press releases.
All of Sportsnet’s 23 regular season Maple Leafs telecasts will air on Sportsnet Ontario and will feature veteran play-by-play announcer Joe Bowen, analyst and former NHLer Greg Millen and host Paul Hendrick. HOCKEY CENTRAL will preview every game with a half-hour pre-game show, and will also provide intermission and post-game analysis.
Highlights from Sportsnet’s Toronto Maple Leafs regular season TV broadcast schedule include:
· Two all-Canadian showdowns versus Edmonton and Calgary
· A matchup with 2013 Stanley Cup finalists Boston Bruins on Tuesday, Jan. 14 at 7 p.m. ET
· Maple Leafs visit Steel City to take on Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday, Dec. 16 at 7 p.m. ET
Sportsnet keeps Toronto Maple Leafs fans connected to their home team first as the exclusive Canadian broadcaster of 24/7 Red Wings/Maple Leafs: Road to the NHL Winter Classic. The series will provide an all-access pass to the events leading up to the 2014 NHL Winter Classic, featuring the Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings playing outdoors at Michigan Stadium on the University of Michigan campus. The series will air on Sportsnet and City (broadcast schedule to be announced at a later date)
