NHL adjusts start time for Capitals-Blackhawks game, flips national games

The NHL announced two minor tweaks to the Capitals’ regular season schedule, which will see one game time change for national purposes while another will slide to NBC Sports Washington.

The Capitals game on Tuesday, December 13, against the Chicago Blackhawks, will now start at 9:00 PM instead of 8:30 PM, as it has been carried to ESPN from NBC Sports Washington.

The Capitals’ game against the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday, January 24th will now come off national TV and will be shown locally on NBC Sports Washington.

The changes were part of 14 schedule updates the NHL announced Thursday. The Caps-Blackhawks game was moved to ESPN when Philadelphia in Colorado was pulled from it. Both teams then lost their national broadcast game on Jan. 24, before Colorado got one back on Feb. 19 against Edmonton.
