Feb 20th is Hockey day In America

NBC Sports announced it’s coverage today for Hockey Day in America, which will feature an NHL doubleheader, all hosted from McCormick Tribune Ice Rink at Chicago’s Millenium Park. From there, NBC will share stories about various displays for love of the game around the nation – from the U.S. Pond Hockey Championships in Minnesota, to celebrity hockey in Los Angeles, to inner-city hockey in Washingon – to celebrate the sport.

After a half an hour of pre-game coverage, NBC will then show three games regionally in the early window, with staggered start times. All viewers will begin the day at the same game at 12:35 PM ET before they get moved to their regional game at no later than 12:45 ET. The early games have not had an exact start time chosen, nor which commentators will call each game, but they’ll be Detroit/Minnesota, Philadelphia/NY Rangers, and Washington/Buffalo.

Later in the day, at 3:30 PM ET, NBC will air Pittsburgh/Chicago nationally, the latest start time for an NHL regular season game on NBC in two years or so.

I guess since the merger has been approved, NBC will use some of the VS announcers for the 3 early games
