Thursday, the NHL released their national broadcast schedule for the 2012-13 regular season. The Blackhawks will appear 14 times on NBC, NBC Sports Network, or NHL Network.
Here's a look at the Hawks' national TV schedule:
Monday November 5th vs Pittsburgh
Wednesday November 28th at Minnesota
Wednesday January 2nd vs New York Rangers
Sunday January 6th vs Detroit
Wednesday January 16th vs St. Louis
Sunday January 20th vs Philadelphia - NBC
Wednesday February 13th at Detroit
Sunday February 17th vs Boston - NBC
Tuesday February 19th vs Detroit
Sunday March 3rd at Detroit - NBC
Wednesday March 6th vs Colorado
Sunday March 10th at Philadelphia - NBC
Sunday March 31st at Detroit - NBC
Monday April 1st vs Minnesota
The non-NBC schedule will be arranged as the season goes on, but it's safe to assume most of those games will be on the NBC Sports Network.
Obviously, these dates are assuming there is no lockout...which is a major assumption, but the NHL still has 15 days to get a deal done.
