How to watch Canucks vs. Blues, Islanders vs. Capitals, 2020 NHL Stanley Cup playoffs – CNET

Published

on

Hockey is probably the last sport you’d think of during the dog days of summer, but in this most unusual year, the NHL is back on the ice in August. Instead of resuming its regular season, which was suspended in March, the NHL is jumping straight to the Stanley Cup playoffs with 24 of its 31 teams.

Similar to the NBA bubble in Disney World, the NHL resumed play in two hub cities. The Eastern Conference teams play in Toronto, and the Western Conference teams in Edmonton, Alberta. The Stanley Cup Finals will also be held in Edmonton.

Here’s what cord-cutters need to know to watch all the Stanley Cup playoff action.

How can I watch the Stanley Cup playoffs on TV?

In the US, playoff games will be shown nationally on NBC, NBCSN, CNBC, NHL Network and USA Network. If you’re a fan of your local team, you’ll be able to watch most games on your team’s regional sports network — a regional Fox Sports or NBC Sports channel in most cases, such as Fox Sports Midwest for St. Louis Blues games, MSG for Rangers or Islanders fans in the New York area, or NBC Sports Washington for Capitals games.

Depending on where you live, one of the major live TV streaming services could carry the local RSN that broadcasts your local team’s games. Not every service carries every RSN or local network such as NBC, however, and some teams aren’t available on any live TV streaming service, so check each one using the links below to make sure it carries the network you want in your area. I’ve also included information for NBC, NBCSN, CNBC, NHL Network and USA Network for national hockey broadcasts.

Sling TV

Carries NBC, NBCSN, CNBC, NHL Network and USA Network

Sling TV’s $30-a-month Sling Blue package includes local NBC Sports RSNs, but not Fox Sports RSNs. Sling Blue also includes NBCSN and USA Network. NBC is also a part of Sling Blue but can be watched live in only a handful of markets. The $10-a-month Sports Extra add-on includes NHL Network, and the $5-a-month New Extra add-on includes CNBC.
