Other highlights:

- NBC and the league have doubled down on Chicago being the mascot of the league, as they play 21 times this season on national TV. 21!

- Meanwhile, PK Subban and the Predators, who will almost certainly be as good if not better than Chicago, will play twice. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

- Two games are listed for after the April 8th and 9th game, but are considered "TBD" until further notice.

- Boston plays both of it's games against Dallas on national TV. One can only imagine the scoring both will bring.

- The schedule is pretty metropolitan division-centric again. I await the day NBC gets to branch out and use the teams that aren't Chicago and the Metro.

- The Oilers ain't here. Get dunked, McDavid.

- The runner ups and Stanley Cup champs will play a lot of games. They hoping for a rematch over at NBC?
