For some Aussies, the ‘Mighty Ducks’ may be the only point of reference when it comes to ice hockey, while for others, the National Hockey League (NHL) is a way of life. The stick tricks, big hits and lightning-quick pace of the game makes for entertaining viewing, although for Aussie fans, catching your favourite team hit the ice can be a challenge.
As with most American sports, time zones can be the biggest roadblock to watching, so where can you turn for all your NHL action without sacrificing your sleep schedule? Canstar Blue shows where you can catch every goal, as well as every time the gloves come off, to get your ice hockey fill.
