Hockey fans have often criticized NBC’s coverage for not showing more of the NHL’s young stars and the up-and-coming teams.That changes when the season opens Wednesday as the network goes with a new approach.NBCSN’s “Wednesday Night Rivalries” has been replaced by “Wednesday Night Hockey.” As part of the repackaging Nikolaj Ehlers Jersey , the network’s studio crew will occasionally report on site, starting on Wednesday from Washington when the Capitals begin defense of their title against Boston.“We’re now showcasing the brightest team and stars. We think it’s a great way to add new teams and stars to a big night,” NBC Sports Executive Producer Sam Flood said. “The intent on Wednesday nights has always been to make it the destination night for hockey. Now we can really take advantage of that.”Much like the NBA does on Thursdays, the NHL has tried to make Wednesday its night for must-see TV.Steve Mayer, the NHL’s chief content officer, said “Wednesday Night Rivalries” proved how special that night can be for the league.“We’re going to make Wednesday night feel special and we want our players to once we get into this to say, ‘Wow, we’re playing on Wednesday night.’ We know that in football, for example, playing on ‘Monday Night Football’ is a big deal,” Mayer said. “Well, why can’t playing on Wednesday night hockey be a big deal? And that’s what we’re striving for.”The biggest beneficiaries of the change are the Western Conference teams. NBCSN will air 18 doubleheaders on Wednesday nights — up from five last season — and 67 of the scheduled 110 games on NBC and NBCSN will have a team from the conference.Winnipeg http://www.jetsshoppro.com/authentic-pat...ine-jersey , which has not made a regular-season national appearance since 2014, will make five this season, including an Oct. 24 game against Toronto that will see NBCSN’s studio show going on the road.NBC’s Mike Emrick said the Jets are one of many teams that deserve the increased exposure.“That matchup could be a Stanley Cup final. There is going to be plenty of excitement with that game early in the season,” he said.Other teams receiving increased exposure are Tampa Bay and Nashville. Both teams will make 12 appearances, which is almost double what they had last season. Defending Western Conference champion Vegas (9), Anaheim (8) and Edmonton (7) also have nearly twice as many appearances as last season.Colorado, which was on only once last year, will be on six times.“We feel it’s time and vital that, given the parity of the league throughout, that we start to develop other teams,” Mayer said. “If suddenly the Nashvilles and the Tampas and some teams that haven’t had the grand exposure get exposure, what’s to say that they’re not going to be the higher-rated teams? … We really believe that our audience is into great hockey played by the best teams and the way we present the games and the stars will lead to great ratings.”The traditional teams will still get plenty of exposure. Chicago will have the most appearances with 19 despite not making the playoffs last season. One of those games will be the Winter Classic at Notre Dame Stadium on Jan. 1 against Boston. Washington will make the first of its 18 appearances followed by Philadelphia (17) and Pittsburgh (15).The only teams not scheduled to appear on NBCSN are Ottawa and Vancouver.“Certainly from a kind of talent standpoint Brian Gibbons Jersey Womens , a competitive standpoint, showing more clubs is better,” NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said. “The fact that NBC is prepared to engage on that basis where we don’t necessarily have to have major U.S. markets for their national games says a lot about how far we’ve come as a sport.”The All-Star Game, which will be held in San Jose on Jan. 26, will be broadcast in prime time on NBC, which is the first time that has happened on a major broadcast network since 1997.Flood thinks the three-on-three format could draw even more fans. It also will be the week before the Super Bowl, which should allow the league to reap increased exposure.The league is also focusing on improving its digital offerings through its deal with BAMTech, which began as a spinoff of Major League Baseball Advanced Media before becoming its own entity. The Walt Disney Co. took a controlling stake in BAMTech in 2017.The NHL.TV offering will include more pregame and postgame coverage, as well as being able to view programming during intermission, after deals were made with team broadcasting partners.ESPN hasn’t aired the NHL since 2004 on any of its channels but will have nine games a week on its ESPN streaming service starting this season. ESPN , which launched in April and just crossed over a million subscribers, had at least one baseball game a day. ESPN will also air a nightly hockey show.“We know there is a big opportunity to grow the subscriber base with both products Jaroslav Halak Jersey Womens ,” said Disney Streaming President Michael Paull. “One thing we learned is that fans want more video. They want more coverage before and after the games.” VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) The San Jose Sharks were able to pull out a win despite struggling to shake the Vancouver Canucks.Timo Meier’s second goal of the game snapped a third-period tie and the Sharks won 5-3 on Saturday night for their fourth consecutive victory.Logan Couture and Kevin Labanc each had a goal and an assist, and Tomas Hertl scored into an empty net with 25 seconds remaining for the Sharks, who are 7-2-0 in their last nine games.”We weren’t at our best,” said Couture, who also had an assist. ”They’re a team in a position where they are rebuilding, but they played hard. They gave us a challenge. It was tough, but we gutted out the win.”Nikolay Goldobin, Alex Edler and Bo Horvat scored power-play goals and Sam Gagner had two assists for the Canucks, who lost their sixth consecutive game – their longest losing streak of the season.”Our battle level was good,” Canucks captain Henrik Sedin said. ”The power play stepped up when it needed to. You score three on the power play and you should win in this league. It’s tough to lose again in the third. That’s the difference between teams that are in the playoffs and teams that are outside.”Goldobin’s goal at 10:48 of the first period snapped a scoreless streak of 222 minutes, 57 minutes for the Canucks Steven Kampfer Jersey Womens , who had been shut out in three consecutive losses.The Sharks had allowed just two power-play goals in their previous 17 games, but gave up three against Vancouver. The only other time San Jose allowed three power-play goals in a game was in an opening-night loss to Philadelphia.”Our kill wasn’t very good,” Couture said. ”We were running around. Our sticks weren’t good. We were getting outbattled and then they got a few lucky breaks. The kill needs to be better going forward.”Aaron Dell, making his first start since Feb. 22, made 28 saves for the Sharks.”It was a huge, gutsy performance,” San Jose coach Peter DeBoer said. ”We let them back in the game and still found a way to rebound. It’s a tough time of year to win, no matter whose building you are going into. To have a trip like that, at this time of year, is critical.”Vancouver’s Jacob Markstrom stopped 25 shots.”I was awful today,” Markstrom said. ”I have to be better.”Meier put the Sharks ahead at 6:07 of the third with a shot from the faceoff circle that went under Markstrom’s blocker. The Canucks came close with just over six minutes left, but Hertl scooped a loose puck off the goal line.Vancouver scored twice with the man-advantage in the second period to tie the game at 3.The Sharks took a 3-1 lead just 1:47 into the period when Meier tipped in Brenden Dillion’s shot from the point.Horvat started Vancouver’s comeback Laurent Brossoit Jersey Womens , scoring just 6 seconds into a power play.

The San Jose goalie was screened by Jake Virtanen.Labanc tied it on a power play at 14:48. Joe Pavelski’s shot was stopped by Markstrom, but he managed to get his own rebound and passed it to Labanc at the side of the net.The Sharks went ahead on Couture’s 29th of the season at 16:08. He took a feed from Hertl, fought off a check by Virtanen and chipped the puck past Markstrom.NOTES: Defenseman Chris Tanev returned to Vancouver lineup for his first game since breaking his leg Feb. 8 against Tampa Bay. … San Jose center Melker Karlsson went to the dressing favoring his right leg early in the first period after blocking a shot. … San Jose’s Marc-Edouard Vlasic left in the second period after being hit in the chest by a puck. … The Canucks’ franchise record for a scoring drought is 234 minutes, 52 seconds, set March 16-24, 2016. … The longest goal drought by a team in the expansion era is 262 minutes, 3 seconds, set by the Minnesota North Stars from Jan. 28-Feb. 6, 1988.UP NEXTSharks: vs. New Jersey on Tuesday night.Canucks: at Vegas on Tuesday night.
