Shrinky-Ducks: Going From Six National Games To One

This picture has nothing to do with the post. I just enjoy Emerson Etem giving the camera 'Magnum' while holding his coconut water like a gangsta.

Yesterday the NHL released the national television schedule for the upcoming 2012-2013 season. (Haha, upcoming season. That's a good one.) Following the '10-'11 season, thanks to an MVP performance from Corey Perry and actually making the playoffs, the Ducks were gifted with six nationally televised games in the following season. (I got a little ahead of myself and said we had eight because I included the NHL Network with NBC & NBCSN.)

Six or eight, it doesn't matter. It's a new season! A fresh start on what's likely to be a pretty different looking Ducks team, lead by lovable lump Bruce Boudreau. Naturally the NHL would give us...wait for it...one game on NBC Sports Network! I'm not terribly surprised by this considering how the team played last season. Play like crap, get crap in return. Bright side? If I include the NHL Network (part of the more expensive cable package), the Ducks will be on TV five times.

Our buddy Steve Lepore at Puck the Media has compiled the US schedule for us:

Thanks to the scheduling gods, the Ducks will air on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada (Saturday night) thrice, playing Edmonton twice and Montreal once (thanks, Saku!). We're on nationally in Canada more than the US - go figure.

DATE HOME VISITOR TIME (PST) CA NATL TV
10/27/2012 Anaheim Montreal 7:00 PM CBC/RDS
11/7/2012 Anaheim Vancouver 7:00 PM TSN
11/28/2012 Calgary Anaheim 6:30 PM TSN
12/1/2012 Edmonton Anaheim 7:00 PM CBC
1/19/2013 Edmonton Anaheim 7:00 PM CBC
1/15/2013 Minnesota Anaheim 5:00 PM TSN2

Like usual, the Ducks will release their local television schedule the closer we get to the season, whenever that may be.
