How to watch the NHL preseason without cable: Live streams, schedule for last week of tune-up games

Hockey fans, the NHL regular season is upon us. We are in the final week of pre-season, with Saturday, October 8th being the last day of warm-up competitions before the regular season.

Teams have begun trimming their rosters and sending players to the AHL or back to their junior clubs. There are still some decisions to be made, but there are still some matchups to come.

While a majority of the games are only available on local television networks, there are some games that can be streamed on ESPN+, which will host over 1,000 NHL regular-season games this season. It’s one of the last chances for fans to see their teams before the official start of the season.
