Dear Twitpic Community – thank you for all the wonderful photos you have taken over the years. We have now placed Twitpic in an archived state. NBC Sports, and televised on NBC and NBCSN in the United States. Regularly scheduled American network broadcasts of NHL games would not begin until the late 1950s, when CBS began carrying regular season games, but no playoff games. The deal was terminated in 1960, due to a combination of a dispute over the players receiving a share of the rights fee and the then-regional nature of the sport. NBC’s coverage of the 1966 Stanley Cup Finals marked the first time that hockey games were broadcast on network television in color.
