It’s going to be a late night tonight.
The Edmonton Oilers are hosting the Arizona Coyotes on Wednesday and the game is officially listed for 8:30 PM local time. But according to The Athletic’s Daniel Nugent-Bowman, the puck isn’t scheduled to be dropped until nearly 9:00 PM…
Games generally don’t start much later than 8:00 PM local time but tonight’s Oilers and Coyotes night’s game in Edmonton is being pushed back in order to help accommodate Wednesday Night Hockey on TNT in the United States.
TNT has two games scheduled for this week’s Wednesday Night Hockey, with the Colorado Avalanche hosting the Pittsburgh Penguins as the first one on the docket. Since Colorado is also in the mountain time zone, they’ve been moved up to a 6:00 PM local start time in order to make space for the later game in Edmonton.
This is the fifth of six games that the Oilers will play on TNT’s Wednesday Night Hockey program. They’re scheduled to play the Ducks in Anaheim as the second Wednesday game two weeks from now at 8:00 PM mountain time.
Their only other remaining 8:30 PM mountain time start is scheduled for Tuesday, April 4 when the Oilers are in Los Angeles to face the Kings.
