The National Hockey League’s Winter Classic between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Tampa Bay Lightning will be shown on NHL Network, but that’s about it for the company’s online streaming plans.
The Penguins beat the Lightning 5-3 in overtime Saturday night in the second round of the playoffs, and the Penguins and Lightning have met five times this season in Pittsburgh.
According to a post on the NHL Network website, the Penguins are watching more online than normal.
The NHL Network has seen about 30 percent fewer total video views than it had in the first quarter of 2017, according to the company.
That’s an average of 1.9 million more than it averaged during the same period in 2017.
On Monday, the NHL also announced a new package of online video games, called NHL Live.
The package includes a new NHL Live app, a free online game and NHL TV.
It’s not clear what’s going to happen with the Penguins-Tampa Bay game.
In a statement to The Associated Press, the league said it “is not currently planning to move the Winter Classic.”
The Penguins will be back in Pittsburgh in 2020 and are currently hosting their annual tournament.
