NHL Playoffs 2018: Where to Watch on TV, Stream Info and Game Times

The NHL Stanley Cup playoffs are set to begin this week, and there are several ways to keep up with the action on the ice.

Games will be broadcast on NBC, NBC Sports Network, CNBC, USA and NHL Network. A live stream will be available on the NBC Sports website and fuboTV.

Sportsnet, Sportsnet 360, Sportsnet One, CBC, Golf and TVA Sports will broadcast the games in Canada.

The opening round will see the Pittsburgh Penguins host the Philadelphia Flyers at 7 p.m. EDT Wednesday in a rematch of the epic series of 2012, which saw 56 goals scored in six games as the Flyers emerged 4-2 winners.

The first game in Pittsburgh’s bid to become the first team since the New York Islanders in the early 1980s to win the Stanley Cup three times in a row will be live on NBCSN and CBC in the U.S. and on Sportsnet and TVA Sports in Canada.

Wednesday also sees the Winnipeg Jets host the Minnesota Wild at 7 p.m. EDT—live on CNBC, Sportsnet and TVA Sports—while the Los Angeles Kings travel to Las Vegas to take on the Golden Knights at 10 p.m. EDT
