Synchronize Your Watches

With the Christmas holiday season upon us, I'm probably going to be busy over the next couple of days with family, friends, and events surrounding this portion of the calendar. Of course, there will be much hockey broadcast over the next few days as Team Canada takes to the ice at both the World Junior Championship in Ufa, Russia and at the Spengler Cup in Davos, Switzerland. We may even sneak a little AHL action into the mix as well. Of course, one has to be near a TV to see the action, but I'm going to post the day-by-day schedule of hockey you will be able to watch depending on what your cable package provides.

I will also post the NHL Network's coverage of Team USA's World Junior Championship schedule because it is available in Canada. For a country starving for excellent hockey action, one should be able to quench that undying thirst for high-quality hockey over the next couple of weeks with this schedule. All times will be in Eastern Time followed by Pacific Time to help with your scheduling of your life around the hockey broadcasts.

Pencil in those dates, kids. As you can see, I color coordinated the various channels as well so you can figure out what is airing on each channel by a simple glance. As far as I'm concerned, though, I'm excited for the games to start on Boxing Day!

To all my readers, thanks for making this another enjoyable year as we embarked on some fun projects this year. Merry Christmas to all, Happy Holidays to those who celebrated other holidays, and let's enjoy some hockey!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
