NBCSN and NHL Network are bringing back some good memories this week even though the NHL season is on hold

The Penguins and the NHL (and, well, basically the world) might be on shutdown mode right now due to the coronavirus, but that doesn’t mean you can’t watch Pens games this week!

Here’s a schedule this week of games that will be on TV if you’re working or stuck at home and itching to have some Pens hockey back in your life.

...Maybe we should live-watch one of these games together, with a game thread and everything? Even recap it afterwards? Sounds like it could be a fun way to escape, definitely let me know if there’s interest in it!

There will also be content on AT&T Sportsnet as well.

Some really great stuff that doesn’t get televised often; Wednesday at 6 PM is absolutely electric with the SJ Cup winning game and the picture-esque Buffalo outdoor game going down at the same time. Thank goodness for DVR’s that can record multiple channels at the once.

We may be all stuck in a crazy, unpredictable quarantinened world, but at least some great memories from the past will be on TV this week to help try and hold us over while the global pandemic continues to unfold. It’s a “better than nothing” type of situation.

Also a lot of these teams are in our Penguins Madness tournament to vote on the best team ever, so you can use these chances to go back and see just how good the teams of old were!
