Wanna watch Matthews vs. McDavid? NBCSN adds Leafs-Oilers on Nov. 29 to schedule


For the second time this season, NBCSN has added a game to allow American hockey fans to watch Auston Matthews.

But this time, there’s a bonus, because Connor McDavid is playing, too.

Tuesday, Nov. 29, is when Matthews’ Toronto Maple Leafs are in Edmonton to play McDavid’s Oilers. NBCSN will join the game in progress, immediately following the originally scheduled coverage of Bruins-Flyers at 7:30 p.m. ET. (The Leafs-Oilers game is scheduled to start at 9 p.m. ET.)

Toronto and Edmonton have already played once this season, last Tuesday at Air Canada Centre. The Leafs won it 3-2 in overtime, on a goal by Nazem Kadri.

As mentioned, this is the second time this season that NBCSN has added a Toronto game to its schedule. Viewers already got to watch Matthews’ ACC debut on Saturday, Oct. 15, when the Leafs beat the Bruins, 4-1.
