By Tom KowalskiThe New York Rangers are the latest franchise to add a new channel to their network.
The NHL Network is an online channel that is live in Canada and streams games from all 50 states.
It features an extensive roster of announcers, analysts and personalities, including Joe Dumars, Dan Bylsma, Dan Marr, Bryan Murray, Kevin Harlan and Brian Burke.
The channel will be available to owners of the Rangers’ new arena in Arlington, Texas.
The NHL Network has also added live hockey coverage from the World Series, which has been a priority for the league.
In addition, the NHL also added a new online program called Hockey Prospects, which provides in-depth scouting reports, analysis, and statistics on top of regular games and games played.
In 2018-19, the Rangers opened the new season with a 9-5-1 record and posted a 9.17 goals-against average.
The Rangers finished with a record of 9-6-2, good for fifth place in the Metropolitan Division.
The Rangers won the Stanley Cup last season, a season that saw the team advance to the conference finals.
They were also the first team in the history of the league to reach a Stanley Cup Final.
The club went on to win the Stanley Trophy as the NHL’s best regular-season team.
The 2018-2019 NHL season kicks off Friday night when the Rangers host the Nashville Predators at the American Airlines Center in Dallas.
The game will air on NBC Sports Network.
