The NHL season will finally begin on Saturday and NBC will be there with NHL Live at 3:00 p.m. ET and Kings’ banner raising followed by regional coverage of Los Angeles versus Chicago (puck drop at 3:25 p.m. ET) and Pittsburgh versus Philadelphia (3:35 p.m. ET).
Both should be great contests as the Kings look to get off to a strong start following their Stanley Cup-winning run while the Penguins and Flyers write the latest chapter of their fierce rivalry.
Watch PHT’s Mike Halford and Jason Brough preview those contests as we get ready for what promises to be an eventful weekend:This video is no longer available. Click here to watch more NBC Sports videos!
