Hockey Day In America, Schedule And TV Information: Five Games, Coverage Map, Broadcasters

Fans in the United States aren't used to hockey coverage like we'll see today on NBC's "Hockey Day In America."

There will be six games televised today in total. All times Eastern.

12:30 p.m. - regional games, NBC

Philadelphia vs. NY Rangers
Detroit vs. Minnesota
Washington vs. Buffalo

3:30 p.m. - national game, NBC

Pittsburgh vs. Chicago

6:00 p.m. - Heritage Classic, Versus

Montreal vs. Calgary outdoors at McMahon Stadium.

It's a unique day of hockey in the U.S., for sure, and the best part about it? Every single game has playoff implications. We have NBC's coverage map, a full schedule and the broadcasters for each game after the jump.

the506 has NBC's regional broadcast map today. In a nutshell, the Midwest and the Rockies will get the Detroit vs. Minnesota game while the two coasts get Philadelphia vs. New York. The only exception is the local markets in Buffalo and Washington, which will obviously receive the Sabres and Capitals. 

View the full map at the506. If you're not getting the game you want to view, the NHL and NBC are providing live, free online streams of all the games on NBC today. You can find that at NHL.com.

Now, the broadcasters for the 12:30 p.m starts:

Philadelphia vs. NY Rangers: Ken Daniels, Joe Micheletti 

Detroit vs. Minnesota: Pat Foley, Darren Pang

Washington vs. Buffalo: Jim Jackson, Ray Ferraro

The entire United States will pick up the 3 p.m. broadcast from Chicago between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Blackhawks. Mike Emrick, Eddie Olczyk and Pierre Mcguire will have the call on NBC.

At 6 p.m., the Heritage Classic will air on Versus in the United States. Dave Strader, Andy Brickley and Brian Engblom will have the call. In Canada, the Heritage Classic will air nationally on CBC. Jim Hughson, Craig Simpson, Glenn Healy and Scott Oake will have the call there.
