Here’s your place to watch all the action.

NHL: FEB 11 Blackhawks at Oilers

The Stanley Cup Qualifiers series begin Saturday with five games. It’s the first time NHL games will actually count for something since March 11, the day before the season was paused due to concerns about the coronavirus.

There will be three games in Toronto, the Eastern Conference’s hub city, and two in Edmonton, the Western Conference’s hub city. All five games can be viewed on NBC networks, including a doubleheader on main NBC with the Blackhawks-Oilers and Canadiens-Penguins.

The Rangers-Hurricanes, Panthers-Islanders and Jets-Flames will be a triple-header on NBC Sports Network.
