The NHL revealed it's national TV schedule this afternoon and the Islanders will potentially be featured in three games-- including one that may be shown on NBC on January 23 at 3 p.m. when they host the Buffalo Sabres.

The Isles-Sabres game is one of three that NBC can exclusively cover; the other two games are the Blackhawks vs. Flyers and the Panthers vs. the Devils.
