NEW YORK (September 19, 2011) – The National Hockey League returns to the ice as the NHL Network-U.S. begins its live preseason game coverage tonight with provincial rivals, the Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators, facing off at 7 p.m. ET. The contest is the first of 19 preseason games the NHL Network will telecast live leading into the NHL regular season, which begins on October 6.
The NHL Network-U.S. preseason schedule is highlighted by rivalry games featuring Chicago at Detroit and Edmonton at Calgary. There will be four doubleheader dates—including Tuesday night’s presentation of Philadelphia-Toronto and Calgary-Vancouver—and a tripleheader on Saturday, Sept. 24, beginning at 3 p.m. ET.
E.J. Hradek takes us on a tour of the new studio.
The NHL Network-U.S. will be broadcasting TSN’s popular “That’s Hockey” program from the Research, Development and Orientation Camp in Etobicoke, Ont., on Wednesday and Thursday at 7 p.m. ET.
Hosted by Gino Reda, “That’s Hockey” features a panel of hockey experts bringing fans up to date on the latest NHL news through analysis and one-on-one interviews.
The NHL reintroduced the RDO Camp last summer after first holding it in 2005. Many of the rule changes that were tested last season, including some faceoff variations, switching ends after regulation, hybrid icing and no-touch icing, will again be on display this year for further analysis.
There are several new additions to the agenda this time, including the elimination of the trapezoid that limits where goalies can play the puck behind the net to a confined area.

History was made. Now it’s time for fans to re-live every shot, save and overtime winner one more time.
All summer long, NHL Network will be replaying the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs—from every jaw-dropping goal to every highlight-reel save to every crushing defeat.
Each game of the postseason—spanning the more than two-month period from the opening round to Boston’s Game 7 clincher of the Stanley Cup Final—will be shown on the Network throughout the offseason.
Every game will be shown on the NHL Network at 8pm ET nightly, starting today.
Full programming schedule available here.
While two of the most recognizable faces in the NHL won’t be in attendance, many more will indeed be at the show at the Palms Casino and Resort today, flashing their best threads on the Red Carpet. So we’ll finally know who has the cleanest post-playoff shave, the hottest girlfriend, the whitest teeth (or, rather, any teeth)... etc. Important stuff.
The Red Carpet Show runs from 5-7pm ET on NHL Network. The NHL Awards broadcast itself starts at 7pm ET on Versus and some CBC stations. (For Canadians out west, the awards broadcast is time-delayed, but you can watch them live on CBC.ca).

For both U.S. and Canadian audiences, NHL Network will begin its Stanley Cup Final coverage on Tuesday, May 31, at 4 p.m. ET with four-hours of programming from Vancouver, NHL On The Fly™ at the Stanley Cup Final: Media Day. Live from the concourse of Rogers Arena, NHL Media Day will give fans a first taste of the playoff excitement as reporters talk with players, coaches and team management from the Vancouver Canucks and Boston Bruins. Together with players, special guests – including the Stanley Cup and Conn Smythe Trophy—will also join the set for Media Day festivities.
It has been a couple weeks since NHL Live switched to the 4:00pm ET hour on the NHL Network and to be truthful, I haven’t been able to watch as much as when it was on at noon.
I also think the new background in the studio makes it look too small and both E.J. and Deb look trapped.
Basically the show has become a recap of what went on last night and also a preview of the games scheduled later in the day.
