Blackhawks top national TV slate with 20 games

The Blackhawks' overtime loss to the L.A. Kings in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals surely broke hearts in Chicago, but few would argue that it was great television--perhaps the NHL's most rivoting viewing of the season.

So it should be no surprise that the Hawks, champions in two of the last five seasons, will lead the league in nationally televised games this fall with 20.

Eleven of those games will air either on NBC or the NBC Sports Network, starting with a game against the Flyers at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 21. on NBCSN, the Hawks' first nationally aired matchup of the season.

The local and preseason TV schedules will be announced later, according to a statement from the team.
