This week may be tough for NHL hockey fans, with 4 days without a nationally televised game. Here’s the schedule for this week.

Note: Looking for Saturday, November 4’s slate of hockey games? Check out last week’s version of Your Week in NHL Hockey.

Welcome back to Your Week in NHL Hockey, where we give you the entire schedule for one week of the hockey season. This week, we’re completely into November, otherwise known as the first full month of hockey! How exciting, right?

(The answer is yes, by the way. Football has been surprisingly lackluster this season, at least if the ratings are anything to go by.)

Although this week has some excellent divisional matchups, it does have a significant lack of nationally televised games here in the United States. Should you live outside your team’s market, you might find yourself resorting to streaming games online via subscriptions or other services. Otherwise, you can use the NHL’s GameCenters to get an idea of how things are going.

As always, we source our information directly from the official schedule, including channel information for both the States and Canada. We’ll also give you some ideas of what games to watch or keep an eye on each night. Sometimes, though, you might find yourself with a choice of your own.

That all said, let’s talk some hockey, shall we?
