It’s been a long summer, but it’s time to hit the ice. Not for meaningful hockey - that comes soon enough - but hockey none the less.
The good news is that most of the games are televised, and all are supposed to be available on the radio. Here’s how the schedule and broadcast options break down:
|Monday, Sept 26, 6pm||@Maple Leafs (in Halifax)||TSN||TSN 1200|
|Tuesday, Sept 27, 7pm||@Sabres||TSN||TSN 1200|
|Thursday, Sept 29, 7:30pm||@Canadiens||RDS, TSN||TSN 1200|
|Saturday, October 1, 3pm||Canadiens||RDS||TSN 1200|
|Monday, October 3, 8pm||@Jets||TSN||TSN 1200|
|Tuesday, October 4, 9:30pm||Maple Leafs (in Saskatoon)||TSN||TSN 1200|
|Friday, Oct 7, 7:30pm||Sabres||-||TSN 1200|
It appears like only Saturday’s home game against Montreal, and the October 7th game against Buffalo might make for difficult viewing. Not everybody has RDS, and there’s nobody carrying the Buffalo game on TV at this point.
Still, this is more of the Sens preseason on TV than we’ve gotten in the past. So break out the snacks, and start practising your pre-game rituals. Senators hockey is back!
