The NHL has released its national television schedule for the 2011-2012 season and one thing hasn't changed: there are few Carolina Hurricanes listings.
The Canes will be shown four times on Versus, which will become NBC Sports Network on Jan. 2. There are no scheduled Carolina games on NBC.
In contrast, the Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins and the Philadelphia Flyers will be shown 13 times each. The Pittsburgh Penguins, Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks each will make 12 appearances.
At the other end of the TV spectrum: the Florida Panthers, with just one Versus appearance.
The Canes' Versus games are: Oct. 12 against the Bruins; Nov. 8 against the New Jersey Devils; Feb. 20 against the Washington Capitals; and March 13 against the New York Rangers. The Devils and Rangers games are on the road.
