NEW YORK, N.Y. - April 29, 2013 - For the second consecutive year, and only the second time in the 96-year history of the NHL, every Stanley Cup Playoff game will be televised nationally. NBC Sports Group will provide unprecedented access to the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, which begin tomorrow, in April, May and June, televising as many as 105 playoff games and possibly more than 260 hours of programming. Games will be presented on NBC, NBC Sports Network, CNBC (in primetime), and NHL Network. In addition, more Stanley Cup Playoff games will be live streamed than ever before.

NBC Sports Regional Networks will surround the Blackhawks (Comcast SportsNet Chicago), Bruins (Comcast SportsNet New England), Capitals (Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic), and Sharks (Comcast SportsNet California) with in-depth live-event and/or news coverage. NBCSports.com will provide comprehensive online coverage of the playoffs with online-only video, contributions from Comcast SportsNet insiders, and constant news updates from ProHockeyTalk.

"After a regular season which has seen significant viewership growth across both NBC and NBC Sports Network, we are proud to once again employ all of our assets - broadcast, cable, regional and digital - to surround the Stanley Cup Playoffs for hockey fans," said Mark Lazarus, Chairman, NBC Sports Group. "During the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs, NBC Sports Group will provide fans and viewers with more live-event, second screen and news coverage than any previous postseason in NHL history."

NBC SPORTS LIVE EXTRA COVERAGE

NBC Sports Live Extra -- the NBC Sports Group's live streaming product for desktops, mobile devices, and tablets -- will stream all Stanley Cup Playoff games that air on NBC, NBC Sports Network, and CNBC, including the Stanley Cup Final for the first time. The vast majority of games will be live streamed via "TV Everywhere," the media industry's effort to make quality content available to authenticated customers both in and out of the home and on multiple platforms.

For desktops, NBC Sports Live Extra can be accessed at NBCSports.com/liveextra. The NBC Sports Live Extra app for mobile devices and tablets is available at the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, and on select Android handset and tablet devices within Google Play.

Games airing on:

CONFERENCE QUARTERFINALS

Every first-round playoff game will be televised on a national platform.

In order to televise as many as four games on a given day/night, the NBC Sports Group will utilize NBC, NBC Sports Network, CNBC and the NHL Network to carry Conference Quarterfinal games.

NBC Sports Network will be the primary home of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, offering coverage of one or two games virtually every night of the first round. NBC will present exclusive afternoon coverage during the weekend of May 4-5.

CNBC and NHL Network will also provide live coverage in primetime. Games airing on NBC Sports Network, CNBC and the NHL Network will be subject to local blackouts in the first round.

See below for a complete Conference Quarterfinal schedule.

CONFERENCE SEMIFINALS

NBC Sports Group's Stanley Cup Playoff exclusivity originates with the Conference Semifinal round. Beginning in the second round and continuing through the Stanley Cup Final, all games will air exclusively on NBC, NBC Sports Network, or CNBC.

NBC Sports Network will serve as the primary home for Conference Semifinal coverage, offering one or two games virtually every night of the second round. When necessary, CNBC will provide live coverage in primetime, although more infrequently than in the first round. NBC will present exclusive afternoon coverage during the weekend of May 18-19, plus a primetime game on Saturday, May 25.

CONFERENCE FINALS

NBC and the NBC Sports Network will team to provide exclusive coverage of the Conference Finals. NBC will broadcast Saturday games on June 1 and June 8. The remaining games from both the Eastern and Western Conference Finals will be televised exclusively on NBC Sports Network.

STANLEY CUP FINAL

For the eighth consecutive year, NBC and NBC Sports Network (formerly VERSUS) will provide exclusive coverage of the Stanley Cup Final. NBC will broadcast Game 1, Game 4, and Games 5-7 (if necessary), with NBC Sports Network televising Games 2-3. Emmy Award-winning play-by-play commentator Mike 'Doc' Emrick, analyst Eddie Olczyk and 'Inside-the-Glass' analyst Pierre McGuire will call the Stanley Cup Final.

STUDIO COVERAGE

Robust pre-game, post-game and intermission studio programming throughout the 2013 NHL postseason will originate from NBC Sports Group's new, state-of-the-art International Broadcast Center located in Stamford, Conn., except during the Stanley Cup Final, when the studio will be live from the game sites.

On most weeknights, fans can expect NHL studio programming for games airing on both NBC Sports Network and CNBC, sometimes simultaneously. NHL Live will usually begin one hour prior to game time, with post-game coverage airing immediately after the final game of the night.

On most days, the NHL Live team of Liam McHugh, Mike Milbury, and Keith Jones will man the studio for games airing on NBC and NBC Sports Network, with Bill Patrick and Jeremy Roenick working the studio for CNBC games. Host Russ Thaler and analysts Mike Keenan and Anson Carter form an additional team of studio commentators during the NHL playoffs.

ENCORES

Beginning on Wednesday, May 1 and continuing nearly every morning throughout the playoffs, NBC Sports Network will air encore presentations of the previous night's NHL Live post-game show, as well as a cut-down version of the most exciting game of the night.

NHL Live post-game encores will air daily at 6 a.m. ET and 8:30 a.m. ET, with the game encore airing from 6:30-8:30 a.m. ET.
