The NHL’s playoff hockey games are being played in the Canadian arena, and fans in the United States are watching their favorite teams compete online with portable centrifugal pucks.
The NHL is not only offering fans the opportunity to stream live games on its streaming service but it’s also taking the game-day experience to the next level with its new Aurora centrifuges.
While fans can get online via the NHL.com mobile app, fans will also be able to get online to watch games on the big screen at the Canadian Tire Centre, where the Rangers play.
According to NHL.ca, the puck will be available to stream on NHL.TV at the venue from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and at the Bell Centre and Bell Centre Fieldhouse from 7 p.t. to 8 p.p.m.(Photo: NHL)The new centrifugal technology is a part of the NHL’s partnership with Bell Canada, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Rogers Communications Inc. (RCI).
This is in addition to the NHL and NHLPA partnerships with Canadian Tire.
The Rangers will be playing on NHL Network at the Rogers Centre, which was announced in July.
“The Rangers have built a successful partnership with the NHL on NHL mobile, and we are excited to be a part to bring fans more exciting games to the Bell Sports Centre,” Bell Canada CEO Joe Parducci said in a statement.
“This innovative technology will provide fans with an even more immersive experience, giving them the ability to watch the Rangers-Devils game on their tablet, smartphone, or laptop with a few clicks of a mouse.
We look forward to making this available in the coming weeks, and will be working closely with the Rangers to provide fans the best possible experience.”
Bell has partnered with Rogers to offer its customers the option to watch hockey online through its mobile app.
According to Bell’s announcement, users can watch live games at the Rangers home game against the Carolina Hurricanes from 10 a.t., and a home-and-home series against the Boston Bruins from 5 p.d.
