Sabres have 15 national TV appearances in 2012-13

BUFFALO — The Sabres will have 15 games broadcast nationally during the 2012-13 season.

The team has two games scheduled for NBC and 13 slated for NBC Sports Network, according to the NHL’s national television schedule, released Thursday. MSG will broadcast 70 Sabres games.

Of course, if the NHL locks out its players when the collective bargaining agreement expires Sept. 15, the schedule could change.

The 15 national appearances rank second behind the Boston, Detroit and Pittsburgh (17 each).

The Sabres’ Feb. 17 home game against Pittsburgh will air on NBC as part of the “Hockey Day in America” lineup. Their March 17 tilt in Washington could be flexed from NBC to NBC Sports Network.

Four Wednesday night contests – Oct. 24 against New Jersey, Dec. 26 against Washington, Jan. 9 against Boston and Feb. 6 at Boston – will be part of the NBC Sports Network’s “Game of the Week.”

In addition, CBC will broadcast eight Sabres games – Dec. 8 at Montreal, Dec. 15 against Montreal, Dec. 22 at Calgary, Dec. 29 at Winnipeg and April 6 at Montreal – on “Hockey Night in Canada.”

  • Oct. 16 vs. Detroit, 7:30 (NBCSN)**
