With no fewer than three games almost every single day of this week, NHL hockey fans will have plenty to choose from. Here’s the complete schedule.

Welcome back to Your Week in NHL Hockey, where we go over the complete schedule for the week, including start times, best bets, and where to tune in to the action. Looking for the October 29 schedule? Check out last week’s edition.

This week, we’ll go into the first full month of hockey. Now, some may choose to watch the World Series instead. (We’re told there may be some sort of history made or something. Apparently both teams have not made it to the Fall Classic for a long time.) However, there’s not much like settling in for three periods, two intermissions, and one hockey game.

We’ve sourced all of the following information directly from the NHL’s official schedule. This week has just two days without nationally televised hockey. The first is Halloween, October 31. We understand that that may be scary to some people.

However, the second has 24 of the 30 NHL teams playing. In other words, you’ll likely have something to watch that day nevertheless.

Now, with all that said, let’s get to looking at this week in the NHL.
