The NHL is in full swing: Here’s where to watch today’s games
The National Hockey League (NHL) is back and we’re chilling with excitement! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 NHL season is about to start with all thirty-one teams ready for an ice-packed season.
According to Business Insider, every NHL team will play a total of fifty-six games by May 8th, 2021. The NHL are also happy to announce that The Stanley Cup is scheduled for July 9th, 2021.
The NHL will hold their annual playoffs based on each team’s points and not their locations. This may be unusual for NHL, but due to travel restrictions, the NHL teams will also be divided based on their geographical location. All Canadian teams will be part of the North division, and the others will be split into the West, Central and East divisions. But where can you watch the NHL?
