Following NCFLMedia's lead, I made a thread for NBC Sports and its many properties following their announcement this week of them revamping their NHL coverage for this upcoming season. http://nbcsportsgrouppressbox.com/2018/08/13/nbc-sports-scheduled-to-air-record-109-games-during-2018-19-nhl-regular-season/ Good bye Wednesday Night Rivalry, hello Wednesday Night Hockey. Finally gone are the match ups between contrived rivals (since when did Tampa become a rival to Chicago?) and most match ups being between teams east of the Mississippi. Wednesday Night Hockey brings a doubleheader most weeks and more varied match ups to promote the NHL stars. Looking through the rest of the schedule, it looks like a lot of the non-Wednesday games during the week will be side-by-side productions by NBC RSNs (lots of Blackhawks, Flyers, Capitals and Sharks games on the schedule). Genius as a cost saving move by NBC but kinda flies in the face of the whole "more varied matchups" mantra that they're trying to promote.
