Saturday night US national games

Is there anyway to swap the Monday game and put it on Saturday Nights (on NBC Sports Network) because the Monday games have to go up against MNF, and other wicked successful prime time programming.

I would love to watch a "Hockey Night in America" game on NBC Sports Network or on USA because of the lack of national hockey on Saturday nights.

Too bad the worst MNF matchup draws better ratings than the best Stanley Cup matchup, so apparently a lot of people still watch MNF.

Eventually they will probably do this. If they want to make NBCSN (or whatever the abbreviation is), they would have to not compete with MNF.

In a perfect world, NBCSN would be airing college football on Saturday nights, at least in the fall. That's a much bigger draw than the NHL. Versus aired football games nearly every Saturday night this past fall. Also, keep in mind that the NFL has games on Saturday nights once college football ends. Besides that, they will be adding some college hockey games to the schedule on Saturdays.

The primary reason games are on Mondays is for continuity. From Mon. - Wed., there's a game on Versus pretty much every night. Then beginning in January, you add Sundays to that mix. You can promote them every night. That flow is broken up if you have games on Saturdays and dump Mondays.
