The NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs – what more really needs to be said? Some say it’s the most exciting time in sports. The sixteen best teams in all of hockey, all vying for the top spot in the best league in the world. They’re all trying to reach the holy grail of sports trophies: Lord Stanley’s Cup.
The script writes itself. It’s drama in the purest form. And the best part is if you’re a TV Plus subscriber with the Value Pack, you can see the whole thing unfold. With the NHL network and The NBC Sports Network, you’ll be able to see the best NHL playoff coverage anywhere.
The playoffs run from April to June. That means that almost every night between those months there will be a hockey game on. Even if your favorite team isn’t playing, there will be a game that’s just as important, and you can see them all. Playoff hockey is the most intense, fast-paced competition you can find. Everyone ramps up their game. The hits get harder, the goals more important, and each trip up the ice could be a game-changer.
Not only will NBC Sports bring you full coverage, but there is an entire network dedicated to keeping you up to date on the entire playoff picture. The NHL Network already features great programming and games for hockey fans, and it will only get better and more intense as the playoffs begin. Every night, the NHL network airs their wraparound show, NHL Tonight.
The show takes you through every highlight from every game. Every goal, big save, or board-shaking hit is highlighted. You get to see every goal from every single game, and you’ll get the best NHL commentary around. They regularly feature current and former NHL greats as well as insights from some of the best minds in the game. If you’re a hockey fan, you aren’t going to find better coverage of the game you love ANYWHERE else.
If you’re a hockey fan, a die-hard sports fan, or someone who enjoys competition at the highest and most elite level, look no further than the coverage of the NHL playoffs on NBC Sports and the NHL network.
