Phil Posted August 13, 2018 Share Posted August 13, 2018 The Wednesday Night Rivalry format will be replaced by Wednesday Night Hockey, the change that will create most of the schedule diversity on NBC Sports Network. Wednesday Night Hockey will feature 17 doubleheaders. Tampa Bay, Colorado, Toronto, Vegas, Edmonton, Nashville and Winnipeg will all have multiple appearances on that night. ?Sometimes I think, through no fault of anyone, we were looking at the ratings through a core group of teams,? Flood said. ?Rivalry Night was successful but some of (the rivalries) don?t have the juice they once did when we started this 12 or 13 years ago.? NBC plans to bring a roaming studio, and some of their top talent, to many of the doubleheader sites to add more flavor to the broadcasts. Flood said one objective of the new strategy is ?to show what?s happening in the newer markets.? https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/08/13/nhl-schedule-nbc-broadcast-new-strategy-2018-19/971814002/ Sent from my iPhone using Blueshirts Brotherhood mobile app powered by Tapatalk Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
