Arizona Coyotes to appear twice on NBCSN in 2019-20 season
NBC Sports Network announced its national NHL broadcast schedule for the 2019-20 season on Tuesday, and the Arizona Coyotes appeared on it twice.
Arizona’s NHL team will face its desert foe, the Vegas Golden Knights, in both matchups. Those games will appear live on NBCSN nationwide on March 18 and March 25, which both are Wednesday nights.
The Coyotes are 3-3-3 all-time against Vegas, which enters its third season of existence.
Both of the NBCSN games are the second game in a double-header on the network, the first one following a Penguins at Rangers game and the second one following a Penguins at Blackhawks game.
“We are thrilled to showcase our #OwnTheDesert rivalry in front of a national audience for multiple games this season,” said Coyotes president & CEO Ahron Cohen in a release from the team. “We take great pride in showing everyone across the country that hockey not only belongs but thrives in the desert.”
The last time the Coyotes were on NBCSN, they beat the Sharks at home on Jan. 13 by a score of 6-3, which snapped a seven-game win streak for San Jose.
The other 80 Coyotes games will be broadcast on Fox Sports Arizona.
