Hockey returned to the ESPN networks last season for the first time since the late 1990s, and that included a heavy streaming component, including on ESPN+. Now, the second year of the deal is getting underway, with a pair of games on Tuesday, Oct. 11 to kick off the 2022-23 season. The first matchup will be between the New York Rangers and Tampa Bay Lightning, while the second will feature the Los Angeles Kings and Vegas Golden Knights. You can watch both with a Subscription to Sling TV (50% OFF).

About the 2022-23 NHL Season Opening Night Doubleheader

The matchup between the Rangers and Lightning, which takes place in New York, doubles as a rematch of last season’s Eastern Conference Finals, with new Rangers captain Jacob Trouba and top goaltender Igor Shesterkin leading New York against Andrei Vasilevskiy and the Lightning. The West Coast game between Los Angeles and Vegas will feature the debut of the Golden Knights’ star acquisition Jack Eichel.

Opening night will also feature the debut of “The Point,” ESPN’s new hockey pregame show, which is hosted by Steve Levy along with Hockey Hall of Famers Mark Messier and Chris Chelios. Sean McDonough will call the Rangers-Lightning game along with Ray Ferrer and Emily Kaplan, while Bob Wischusen, Brian Boucher, and Leah Hextall are the broadcasters for the game in Los Angeles.

This season, ESPN will offer over 1,000 out-of-market games to ESPN+ subscribers, in what’s called the NHL Power Play; 28 games are set for the first week. Alternative broadcasts are also part of their plans.
