The National Hockey League has released the North American TV broadcast schedule for the round robin games and the qualification round of 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The league’s main broadcast partners for these games will be NBC, NBCSN, and NHL Network in the U.S. of A. while the CBC, Sportsnet and TVA Sports will handle things for our friends north of the border.

It’s important to note that the league’s schedule doesn’t include local broadcast affiliates. In fact, in the press release, the league notes “many games will be available in the local market on the team partner regional sports network.”

Here’s the Florida Panthers broadcast schedule for Games 1 through 3.
