More ways to watch NHL games

If you don't want to purchase ESPN+ or already subscribe to cable or a cord-cutting service, you will still be able to watch nationally-televised games on ABC, ESPN, and TNT. Note that Hulu will also have exclusive national broadcasts.

However, keep in mind that both cable and cord-cutting services will be limited to one geographic area based on your billing address, and not every platform includes the regional sports network (RSN) that airs most of a team’s games. For example, Sling TV does not carry NBC Sports Boston, which airs most Bruins games. Another cord-cutting service, fuboTV, doesn’t include TNT, which shows the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
