NBA & NHL on TV

10/23 to 10/30

As a supplementary piece to my football recap (which can be found here), I’ll also be doing a weekly listing of the top nationally televised NBA and NHL games for the week. Since the regular season is so long for both organizations, I’ll only be listing a selection of “highlighted” games of the week for the more casual viewer. I’ll also be providing a “Power Ranking” of the top 10 teams in each league.

I will try and have a new post up every Monday.
