On this page, you can find information on how to watch the league you love, plus who looks like a good bet to win the Stanley Cup.

What other streaming services can I watch with ExpressVPN?


  1. Je me suis inscrit aujourd’ui pour un abonmnement de 6 mois et je voudrais le canceller puis avoir mon crédit merci

  2. Will this similarly work logging into my TV provider through the VPN? I’m located in Victoria B.C., and do not get the Toronto Maple Leafs games regularly. Will logging into a server in the east circumvent this?

  3. I’m in Peru and would like to watch the NHL Stanley Cup.. could you please let me know which one is the best option to subscribe. Thank you in advance

  4. I’ve been unable to sign up successfully to anything in order to watch NHL – they all know I’m using a VPN and they don’t allow it.

  5. I live in BC and can get out of market Canucks games through our Roku but not local games. How do I set up my Roku to get all games?

  6. Youtube TV detects ExpressVPN. And won’t let you watch anything. Just thought I’d share that so others can pick a different option other than YouTube TV.

  7. I would like to watch maple leafs vs. bruins, april 21, 2019 but it is not broadcast in playa del carmen, on sky tv. what can I do? help.

  8. Getting hockey using an USA Zipcode has 2 problems for Canadians.
    1/. Most Canadians do not have an USA zipcode.
    2/. If you can connect to USA, it is likely that you will not see too many Canadian games.

    1. Hi Joseph,

      To watch the games featuring Canadian teams, you can check the team’s schedule and then connect to a server location where the broadcaster is available from.

      For example, you can check the schedule for the Canucks (, then connect to a server location where a broadcaster is showing the next Canucks game. To find the USA Zipcode you need, simply Google “(location name) zip code” and you’ll be all set.

  9. Absolutely love the service of ExpressVPN. I watch hockey all season in every market with this service. Not to mention the privacy on all my devices over my network with a dd-wrt router. I switched from another provider and it was well worth it. Your staff and customer support is second to none. Thanks for a great product and service, and Go Preds!

  10. I am cutting cable ASAP. I am a little confused on how to bypass blackouts for NHL, specifically Nashville Predators. I bought Roku, and was looking at Sling tv and Fubo Tv, only to find our that the Fox Sports south feed would more than likely be blacked out. Will the express VPN solve this problem? Does the VPN work through the Roku setup? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

  11. hello I want to cut my cable and keep . watching the boston bruins on cable. How does this work ? I am not to good with a computer . what will I need . how to hook to my tv I am getting a amazon jail broken fire stick and cutting cable , what do I need to do

    1. Hi Joseph,

      You just need to a broadcast subscription (see the guide above) and ExpressVPN. Simply fire up the VPN and log in to your broadcast subscription, you’ll be all set 🙂

  12. I will be in Florida from January 1st to the end of April in a rental accomodation. What is my best way of obtaining all Toronto Maple Leaf games while in Florida for the three months? I have my computer with me , a chromecast and there is a tv available with a HDMI connection. Their current cable subscriber is Comcast and in the past I have streamed my Netflix subscription from my computer to that tv with no visual problems. An additional bonus is that they do not have an HD subscription although they have an HD tv and the stream through my chromecast projects in HD. Would my doing this result in an additional cost to my owners cable costs?

    1. I am in Florida at the same time. I gave up trying to get the Leafs on anything but NHL Gamecentre. I get it free with my Rogers subscription. It works great here. The problem I am having is getting the Tampa Bay Lightning! They blacking a lot of those games out in the Tampa area.
