2006–07 NHL season Edit

For the 2006–07 season, NBC broadcast three regional games per weekend of coverage during the regular season.

They also scheduled ten coverage windows during the playoffs (not including Stanley Cup Finals).

The additional broadcasts were expected to replace the Arena Football League, which NBC dropped after the 2006 season.

NBC also produced two games per week in high definition, up from one in 2005–06.

The newly titled NHL on NBC Game of the Week premiered for a second season January 13, 2007 with three regional games (LA vs. STL, BOS vs. NYR, PIT vs. PHI) at 2:00 pm ET. Games started at various times, ranging from 12:30 to 3:30 during the season (this variation primarily resulted from NBC's commitments to the PGA Tour and other programming).

The NHL on NBC moved to Sundays after its season premiere (listed above) for the final 8 dates of the season.

NBC's 9 games amounted to the league's most extensive U.S. broadcast television coverage since 1998 during Fox's tenure.

A new Sunday Night Football-esque score banner designed by Troika Design Group also debuted during the season.
