Jack Eichel and company will play on national television at least three times during the 56-game 2020-21 season, NBC announced Tuesday.
The Buffalo Sabres will appear on NBC Sports Network’s NHL Wednesday Night Hockey against the Pittsburgh Penguins on March 24, and will have games on NBC against the New York Islanders (March 7) and Penguins (April 17).
