Nashville fans have long wished for more national coverage, particularly decrying how few games the team has broadcast on NBC and its affiliates outside of the playoffs. This year, however, the team has been given eleven games on NBCSN, along with a matinee versus the Blues on NBC proper.

Nashville will be appearing in a revamped "Wednesday Night Hockey", since the network realized few of the matchups were rivalries and the ones that were rivalries were boring and bad.
From the press release:
“Wednesday Night Hockey” will feature NBCSN’s widest variety of teams to date on Wednesday nights, including multiple appearances by Tampa Bay, Colorado, Toronto, Vegas, Edmonton, Nashville, and Winnipeg. The defending champion Washington Capitals lead all teams with eight “Wednesday Night Hockey” appearances;
P.K. Subban will also feature as "Star Power":
Established stars and young phenoms will take center stage on “Wednesday Night Hockey”, highlighted by multiple appearances from the likes of Alex Ovechkin (WSH), Marc-Andre Fleury (VGK), Sidney Crosby (PIT), Patrick Kane (CHI), P.K. Subban (NSH), Patrice Bergeron (BOS), Steven Stamkos (TBL), Claude Giroux (PHI) Connor McDavid (EDM), Patrik Laine (WPG), Auston Matthews (TOR), Henrik Lundqvist, (NYR), Johnny Gaudreau (CGY), Joe Pavelski (SJS), Jonathan Quick (LAK), and Nathan MacKinnon (COL);
The press release also focused on earlier start times for the Wednesday night games, giving a little bit of hope that they will reconsider the 8:45 PM local puck drops during the playoffs.
